CloudQuant Capital for Algorithmic Trading


CloudQuant® began as an internal research tool for proprietary traders to explore extraordinary quantitative trading ideas. Anyone can use CloudQuant to create and test Algorithmic Trading Strategies.

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 on the operation and execution of profitable quantitative trading strategies.  During this time, Kershner provided the trading and technology expertise to design a platform that enabled researchers to go from idea to production implementation in a matter of hours.

In 2016, Kershner spun CloudQuant off as a stand-alone firm established to serve the needs of the independent market researchers around the world.

In August of 2017 CloudQuant officially launched with the $15 Million USD funding their first crowdsourced trading algorithm. This was quickly followed by a second $10 Million funding of another algorithm. As of October 30th, 2017 we have issued allocation certificates for $72 Million USD to crowdsourced trading strategies.

CloudQuant is:

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