Data-Driven Insights for Hedge Fund Investors, Managers and Advisers

Hedge fund investing has long been more art than science, but we’re here to change that. We’ve developed unique algorithms that overcome the obstacles to quantitative analysis that hedge funds often present, such as infrequent returns, limited histories, and dynamic risk exposures. We help our clients construct more efficient, higher returning hedge fund portfolios.

About Eqira

Eqira (pronounced like “Akira”) distills financial data, removing the noise obscuring its hidden value and decomposing it into useful, organized information.
