Man Group fund of hedge funds unit FRM Capital Advisors will seed the new business, which will use what CommEq calls an artificial-intelligence-based prediction engine.
“Following an investment of more than 150 man years in natural language processing technology and predictive systems, CommEq has developed what we view as an innovative systematic platform which we believe goes well beyond known approaches in the field.” Patric de Gentile-Williams, FRM's head of seeding, said, ”We feel this strategy may be attractive for investors looking for highly liquid, systematic, relative value investment strategies.”
As part of the agreement, FRM will provide infrastructural, operational and risk-management support for CommEq.
