Swiss boutique Private Alpha AG has launched its first artificial intelligence (AI) based fund with Universal Investment.
Private Alpha AI global opportunity fund is a mixed fund that uses an AI algorithm to manage risk in stock picking. It is led by an algorithmic screening system that monitors 5,000 listed stocks. It also focuses on the global stock markets to identify regional market trends and to maximise equity exposure in the fund. This is achieved by using a short overlay control for negative signal constellations of the AI monitoring to reduce the market risk of the equities.
This type of combination of proven equity analysis algorithms with the latest artificial intelligence systems is the next evolutionary step in portfolio management.
The fund will be offered in addition to the existing Private Alpha Algorithmic Robo fund, which was launched in March 2018.
