Aurum Quant EMN Index


Numerai is stock selection alpha.

80% of our returns come from non-factor exposure which means our fund can work well when factors stop working. Many market neutral funds like AQR run factor exposure risks which can perform poorly during times of market stress like in 2020.

Investment Process

1 Research and Data

Numerai researches and combines a large number of data sources together and transforms the data into regularized features and targets to create a pure dataset for the data science community.

2 Data Tournament

Datasets are made available to our community of data scientists who compete to create the best predictive models in a tournament. Data scientists stake their best models with our cryptocurrency, NMR.

3 Meta Model

Numerai creates the Meta Model by combining the latest predictions from the tournaments and outputs a signal for each stock in our investable universe.

4 Portfolio Construction

Model is fed into Numerai’s optimization engine to construct the optimal risk penalized, market neutral portfolio.

Skin in the game incentivizes the crowd.

Numerai uses cryptocurrency staking to incentivize our global network of data scientists to submit the best possible machine learning models which power our global equity hedge fund. We never trade crypto. But we have created an institutional grade market neutral hedge fund using crypto incentives.
