We could not have timed the launch of our AI-Fund any better to demonstrate our indisputable trading edge. In the last quarter of 2018, the US equity markets just came apart at the seams and spiraled rapidly into a bear market - a fall of 20% from all-time highs. They experienced their worst December since the Great Depression. Despite the jaw-dropping, vicious price action of the markets, our artificial intelligence powered, volatility trading strategies outperformed the S&P 500 by almost 14.58% (net returns before management fees). Such environments truly separate strategies with a real edge from the rest.
We are exhilarated by how our system performed in one of the most difficult market environments seen in decades. Our trading strategies have been built painstakingly over a decade of intense trading, research and experimentation. Our past failures and successes have helped us build our present system of superior relative value volatility trading strategies and enabling technologies that will sustain its edge in any market environment.

It is has been proved mathematically that a successful Kelly strategy maximizes an investor's capital in the long run.
