About Vestun Ltd.

Financial market behavior has taken on renewed vigor in recent years. high-frequency trading firms has been underperforming as speed is capped by the speed of light, machine learning is challenged with overfitting and the intrinsic characteristic of the financial market makes sequence prediction inefficient. In addition, finance is one of the only fields which is not collaborative. In fact, analysts or quants have no incentive in collaborating. Or, at least not until we create one.

Vestun is a Fintech company employing quantitative and AI technologies to exploit market behavior and inefficiencies. As opposed to traditional quantitative investment firmes, Vestun combines financial data with alternative data sets to develop self-learning and adaptative models prevented from rigid rules and overfitting.
