# Driving Value:

# The Long and Short of It.

Your success is all about discovering trade ideas and exploiting them.

Finding these ideas is your highest-value task.

InvestIn is your comprehensive digital research assistant to surface ideas unknown to you. Doing so is InvestIn’s highest-value benefit.

# Ideas through Every Door.

You know your strategy. You know how to execute.

Discovering trading ideas begins your value-creation process.

Maybe long positions. Maybe shorts.

# INVESTIN IS AN IDEA ENGINE.

#### What You Need

A single ratio or quantitative statistic is nearly useless in identifying a high-profit trading idea.

Besides, that’s not how you think. You’re considering multiple factors at once and across many time periods searching for the intersection of results and your fund’s unique buying criteria.

Now, in one place, you have the complete roster of quantitative statistics, fundamental financials, and time periods for discovering wholly objective targets that supplement sourcing from your internal methods.

#### Productivity

No other tool puts multi-factor, multi-time period, algorithmic fitting at your finger tips like InvestIn.

Instead of spending talent and resources plowing through factors one at a time and dumping them into spreadsheets, InvestIn surfaces them for you in seconds.

An advanced genetic algorithm orders your factor and time period assemblies from best-to-worst fit (i.e. aligning to long and short trades), and this focuses your attention on strategy fit and profit potential.

# BIG DATA. BIG IDEAS.

Each stock in InvestIn’s database is ranked for every quantitative and fundamental factor across every time period. This is over 7,000 rankings per stock.

Then, consider InvestIn’s multi-factor, multi-period algorithmic power that processes everything simultaneously and gives you results in just seconds.

There’s no need for you to dump results into a spreadsheet for each metric and repeat and repeat. You see the results immediately with the best ideas listed first.

# An Idea Well Earned.

The set of examples below illustrate InvestIn’s power to produce results aligned with the quantitative and fundamental factors – as well as a broad array of market and economic historical segments – most important to you.

Think about all this capability for an annual $6,000 subscription.

Strong results at a low cost. InvestIn is a trade worth making.

# OK, BUT SHOW ME.

## QUANTAMENTAL FACTOR EXAMPLE (LONG)

Select any number of quant and fundamental factors and any number of time periods. Your expertise is facilitated with InvestIn’s flexibility in defining how you set the selection boundaries.

The portfolio on this live page was created using returns up to January 2020 (i.e. prior to the Covid19 market decline); the results for all subsequent months are active and include monthly rebalancing.

There are 36 stocks that meet the criteria of this particular example and they’re ordered from 1 to 36 in the results table. This focused list, produced in a few seconds, is ready for your analysis. And, there’s a number of powerful functions to speed you along to an investment decision. InvestIn proves its value as a primary idea resource.

## MULTI-FUNDAMENTAL FACTOR EXAMPLE (LONG)

InvestIn lets you assemble ideas in one place and experiment to see what mix of factors best captures your trading instincts. For this R&D, it’s easy to set up your tests with in-sample periods and then show your out-of-sample results – the “walking forward” period – in the same table (i.e. using factors selected for display only).

The portfolio on this live page was created using returns up to January 2020 (i.e. prior to the Covid19 market decline); the results for all subsequent months are active and include monthly rebalancing.

## MULTI-QUANT FACTOR EXAMPLE (LONG)

This example includes only selected quant factors. You can choose whatever factors and time periods you prefer. Instead of numerics, you can also set your discovery to ranking segments: quartile, quintile, decile, or percentile.

The portfolio on this live page was created using returns up to January 2020 (i.e. prior to the Covid19 market decline); the results for all subsequent months are active and include monthly rebalancing.

## IDEA ALLOCATOR – OPTIMIZE THE BEST LONG IDEAS

InvestIn supports your creativity, instincts, and trend-spotting. For the examples above, there’s a number of ways to discover ideas. Here, we’ve assembled the best 5 ideas from each of the 3 long-only results tables into a single target list of 15 stocks.

With your best ideas in a single frame, InvestIn’s industry-leading genetic algorithm optimizes these ideas to a particular tilt you define, say, defensive, aggressive, and balanced. (Of course, you have full freedom to build any number of these sentiment models).

For example, using the same 15 best long ideas (click the button for the live page), a defensive tilt has 49% less volatility and 90% less max drawdown than aggressive but aggressive has 29% more return. You don’t compromise on your trade selections but you create different tailored investment experiences . . . all in just seconds.

## QUANTAMENTAL FACTOR EXAMPLE (SHORT)

Your discovery sets filter InvestIn’s database to your preferences and then present the results ordered from best to worst. Long-only discoveries seek the best; short-only seeks the worst. The beauty of InvestIn is the whole process works the same, but for shorting ideas you focus on the worst performers.

# Resources on Resources.

## InvestIn’s standard subscription is an entire toolkit comprised of investment selection, portfolio building, and advanced optimization tools. In your role as research analyst or PM, you emphasize InvestIn’s trade-idea generation. But, there remain many other valuable tools you’ll find beneficial in the package.

# Valuing a Discovered Idea.

In receiving InvestIn’s results from your discovery definitions, trade ideas emerge. Sure, some names are familiar to you but others are not. Each name new to you represents substantial value on two fronts.

First, InvestIn is revealed as a resource you can trust in sourcing trade ideas aligned with your strategy.

Second, each new InvestIn trade idea flowing through your decision-making process into an actual investment is pure financial value because you would have been less likely to discover this idea prior to InvestIn. And, as we noted above, trade idea generation is your highest-value task.

Separate or together, these two fronts produce benefits far exceeding InvestIn’s $6,000 per user annual cost.

InvestIn: minimal cost risk and substantial upside . . . dimensions any asset manager will love.
