German boutique Acatis Investments has handed three of its equity funds over to artificial intelligence (AI) and says that the year ahead will be...
We invest if a security’s fair value is higher than its market price. We invest in undervalued equities, countries, sectors, funds, or fixed-income securities. In our funds we hold value, growth and turnaround securities that are trading at a substantial discount to their fair value. Where necessary, we hedge against price shocks. With our systematic methodology we achieve significantly higher returns over the longer term compared to other investment techniques.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
We have been working on artificial intelligence (AI) and its use in portfolio management for several years now. In 2017, we launched the world’s first mutual fund whose stock selection and portfolio construction process is entirely controlled by artificial intelligence. Another fund followed in 2017 and 2018.
We have also been successfully offering funds in the area of sustainable investments for many years. The criteria used in our sustainability funds were developed together with investors by Swiss-based ACATIS Fair Value Investment AG, which advises us in the sustainability field. The sustainability research is also based on imug/Vigeo EIRIS and an independent sustainability advisory board that monitors compliance with the sustainability criteria and their topicality.
