The Chartered Alternative Investment Analysts Association (CAIA) has published an article, entitled "Including Investment Process Technologies within Operational Due Diligence", by Dana Lambert and Rayne Gaisford.
EDS is excited to be highlighted as a key vendor providing leading-edge technology to fundamental investors. The EDS mission is simple - provide a high-end investment analytics, portfolio management and risk modeling platform that provides the power of a data scientist, at a fraction of the price - no added personnel or expensive IT support, and easy-to-use and implement.
"The EDS platform has been in development since 2013, and currently has multiple customers. Having such a comprehensive, efficient, and versatile screening and portfolio ranking tool brings data science capabilities to fundamental managers, helping them significantly increase productivity and generate alpha." - Dana Lambert, Rayne Gaisford:
These approaches to security selection, portfolio construction, analytics, and risk measurement – and the behaviors tied to them – enable much more data-centric and evidence-based practices, in many cases providing a “quantamental” overlay to a fundamental investing technique. This overlay can create the much sought-after “edge” or marginal information advantage that so many in the investment management business seek.
