I Know First is a fintech company that provides state of the art self-learning AI based algorithmic forecasting solutions for the capital markets to uncover the best investment opportunities. The AI Algorithm was developed by Dr. Lipa Roitman, a scientist with over 20 years of research and experience in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) fields, who leads our unique R&D team to further develop and enhance the algorithm.
The team consists of PhD’s and AI and Machine Learning experts, including IDF intelligence veterans and consults with Prof. Yakov Yakubov, a mathematician from Tel Aviv University. The concept of the current algorithm has crystallized following years of prior research into the nature of chaotic systems. Predictions are generated daily for a growing universe of over 3000 securities, including stocks, world indices, ETFs, interest rates and more for the short, medium and long-term horizons.
The algorithm is applied to discover the best investment opportunities and used as a decision support system for existing investment processes or to develop systematic trading strategies. It is adaptable and scalable allowing comprehensive customized algorithmic solutions including integration of additional markets depending on clients’ needs – banks, family offices, wealth management firms and hedge funds – as well as fund management partnerships.
