What’s good in a quant fund?

Quantitative Finance seems to be an established trend in investing. It’s using computer models to find probably situations to invest in. There are tons of hedge funds around the country that employ some sort of quant strategy with the money they have under management. I think there is a space to play here, and a partner and I have been actively developing strategies to compete. It makes sense since we are software developers by day with a business background for me, and engineering for him.

It’s a tough space to figure out. People that have strategies aren’t exactly actively publishing how they are doing it, what their results are, etc. So we have very little information to go on as far as comparisons against the field. So one of the biggest questions for us is what would be good returns for an investor looking to get into this space?

Currently one of our 5 strategies is producing well. Up over 10.36% for the year, while the S&P is down around 2%. If you look even further back over the past 200 days, our strategy is up around 23% (Note, these numbers don’t include some small % of slippage). We are making quick hits in investments with exposure lasting no longer than 14 days to limit risk and are playing nothing but equities.

So our big question in to the investing world out there is, does this kind of return interest you? and do you think it would be competitive in today’s investing marketplace?
