Who we are

Since 2008: several years of research + one to one straightforward meetings / brainstormings with investors, portfolio managers, prop traders, quants, strategists and brokers.

In november 2016, Yohan Fereres (PhD in Quant Finance in 2013, CES Artificial Intelligence Telecom Paris in 2020) grouped several highly
experienced investment professionals and researchers to create KantifEye with the main support of Thomas Padovani (former CEO
of Adcash Advertising Technology a worldwide top AdTech company, several Private Equity successful exits, currently investor in Tech companies including one Unicorn and CEO of a single Family Office).


We created an alternative modeling to modern Portfolio Theory.

Our Approach

quantamental approach of financial markets: combining quantitative and fundamental processes.

Fundamental analysis relies on significant human resources, encountering time and budget challenges. Furthermore, fundamentals can be disconnected from a market regime switch and volatility shocks.

We combine the power of AI, quantitative computations with human investors expertise to optimize portfolio and risk management.

Leveraging more than 14 years of professional and academic research, KantifEye now provides a flexible and automated Decision Support Instrument (DSI) mixing data processing, recognized statistics methods, data clustering, probability computations and some best practices of portfolio trading/risk/management.
