Linked In: Another black box strategy now on our platform

As you know, I like being part of Linked In. Some of the groups I am part of are inspiring and most of all a hot bed of learning. Here is another one of those pitches I see on Linked In. This is from a group called Israel Quant Group out of New York City.
Here was the pitch:

Another black box strategy now on our platform
We’re very excited about our latest signing, a former Smith Barney quant who has devised an arbitrage strategy that utilizes exchange listed options and generates significant alpha (around 3% a month) with very strong risk controls. It has averaged approximately 30% per year and has generated positive returns in almost 84% of the months. This system is based on the identification and instantaneous trading of mispriced options among correlated assets. Contact us for more details about forming a partnership around this or other strategies.

Here is the summary of the Group:

Summary
IQ-G is a quantitative trading group which owns, develops, administers, and executes a diverse set of fully systematic algorithmic IP’s (strategies) which are currently running separately in multiple markets including FX, equities and ETFs, commodity and index futures.

IQ-G’s mission has been to build a portfolio of quantitative, systematic trading strategies based on rigorous R&D in order to provide our partners/clients with reliable and strong Risk-Focused Returns that are fully systematic strategies.

The goal is to continue making our hedge fund, bank, and prop desk clients’ business life easier and that much more profitable by becoming an extension of their quantitative trading desks.

We do so by leveraging off the largest pool of quantitative talent per capita in the world, in Israel, and do it in a way that makes it seamless for our clients with no strings attached.

This is achieved by allowing our clients to select trading strategies that best suit their requirements and benefit from our algorithmic trading strategies in three different ways:

1. Licensing the signals on an exclusive basis or on a non-exclusive basis
.
2. Bringing, the developer of the strategy trade in-house (in certain cases only).
OR

3. Creating a managed account where the manager will act as the power of attorney for the client.

If you feel it appropriate please don’t hesitate to contact us.
