CloudQaunt - Providing Capital for Algo Traders

CloudQuant Company History

CloudQuant® began as an internal research tool for proprietary traders with extraordinary trading ideas to be able to explore quantitative trading ideas.

We began as a research tool within the Kershner Trading Group, a veteran of the trading industry for over 23 years. Kershner’s experience as a trading firm focused every day on the work of operating and executing profitable quantitative trading strategies provided the trading and technology expertise to design a platform that enables researchers to go from idea to production implementation in a matter of hours.

In 2016, CloudQuant was established as a stand-alone firm aimed at serving the needs of the independent market researchers around the world.

CloudQuant is:

  • a high-performance quantitative research platform,
  • an educator,
  • a community of traders, quants, and data scientists
  • a technology provider,
  • an investor in profitable strategies

We are The Trading Strategy Incubator

Our mission is to provide you with tools to develop and prove your trading strategies. We then license your profitable strategy from you. Once licensed, we assign capital from our funds to your strategy. Our professional traders, risk managers, and technologists oversee the day-to-day operation of the trading strategy.

When your strategy makes money, you get paid and so do we.  When it doesn’t then we lose money, not you.

CloudQuant is a place for you to express, debate, and share your ideas. It is a place to validate them too with high-frequency Trade and Quote data sets for all US Equity products.

Things to know before you get started!

  • Creating an account is free
  • Using the simulation tool is free
  • The alternative data sets are free
  • Your work is private to you and you retain 100% ownership of your algorithms
  • You are automatically eligible to compete in the continuous “Fund My Strategy” competition

In the end, we want you to be successful and ultimately if you are, we would like to license and operate your strategy by entering into a profit-sharing license agreement with you.
