Under The Hood

Portfolio Optimisation

Portfolio optimisation selects the best portfolio, out of the set of all portfolios being considered, according to the objective of maximising expected returns and factors, whilst minimising financial risks and transaction costs.

Investing is multi dimensional, with the need to balance up risk, return and transaction costs. Conventional stock filtering is single dimension and does not achieve the best outcome, exposing investors to higher risks and costs.

Portfolio optimisation ensures the best portfolio given the preferences and limitations.

To allow personalisation, we allow users to specify the parameters. The optimiser will adopt all the parameters and data to construction portfolios. So, users must understand the meaning and impact of the parameters.

We simplify a computationally intensive process and make it accessible.

By allowing users to parameterise the optimiser with their own preferences, portfolios are optimal and personalisable.

Our optimiser has been constructed to be robust, computationally fast and consistent with user’s objective (e.g. in maximising ESG or its sub-pillars in their portfolios).

Crea8 is backed by years of R&D, with some published in peer reviewed journals.

By combining with industry experience, we present the best of technology, data, research for investors to create uniquely investable themes.
