About the Company

Our aim at Aikido is to bring quantitative investing to everyone. We want to bridge the gap between passive and active investing, providing the simplicity of passive investing with the potential outperformance of the active approach. Quantitative investing has traditionally been viewed as a cryptic domain, reserved only for sophisticated financial firms who have access to vast amounts of data and talent. Our goal is to change the status-quo by democratising quantitative investing. We present long-term, outperforming quantitative strategies, enabling you to build a portfolio with just a few clicks.

About the Team

The founding team was a group of four Irish software engineers and data scientists with a keen interest in quantitative and fundamental investing. We formulated the idea for Aikido in 2019 when we began building a back-tester. We coined the project ‘Doubting Thomas’, as we were skeptical of the abnormally high returns obtained by some simple systematic strategies. The premise of the project was to verify these results while giving us the ability to investigate the interaction of various blends of factors. We found the quantitative tools available to retail investors was limited. Additionally, a high level of prerequisite knowledge is the standard.

Technology

We operate at the intersection of finance and technology, abstracting away the complexity which you might be accustom to in other financial apps. We have built an intuitive and powerful investment research app, allowing you to maximise your invested capital with a data-driven approach.

The farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.

– Winston Churchill

Aikido does the research so you don’t have to. Aikido processes hundreds of gigabytes of high quality financial data from Factset, dating back to 1980 and updated hourly. We have identified the characteristics which best explain the return of stocks. Based on these factors, we have curated a catalog of performant quantitative strategies. Many of these are derived from the methodologies of some of the worlds most iconic investment managers.

You can also integrate your Interactive Brokers account with Aikido to live-trade any given strategy.
