Qi solutions are based on applying adaptive machine learning techniques to large amounts of relevant macro data. This enables global investors to define the macro characteristics of assets, optimise trade selection, identify market regime shifts, spot valuation opportunities and measure risk exposure to macro factors at both instrument and portfolio level.

Qi analytics are delivered in a number of ways, including through a REST API, web platform, Thematic Equity Baskets service, Qi Macro Risk product and Qi Labs. Founded in 2014, Qi is the result of several years of collaboration between experienced investors and leading academics and data scientists.
