Forensic Alpha

We use proprietary NLP algorithms to perform a forensic analysis of public company filings. We turn unstructured data found in the notes to the accounts and in the governance disclosures into structured data. We process and analyse that data, hunting for the presence of common red flags that are known to be indicators of weak fundamentals, imminent problems and/or, in extreme cases, fraud.  Our clients are mainly asset managers and hedge funds, looking to identify companies that may be at risk.
We are led by a management team comprising three experienced founders: an ex-portfolio manager from a top investment firm, a technology expert with a background in artificial intelligence and a veteran global asset management executive.
