Real-time machine intelligence.
Building the future of stream learning,
today.™

WHO WE ARE

Bayforest is a multi award-winning quantitative investment company that combines state of the art real-time statistical inference with deep market expertise. We specialise in streaming and online learning algorithms to analyse torrents of data, built solely on cutting-edge proprietary infrastructure, in a collaborative and peer reviewed environment.

WHAT WE DO

Bayforest was launched in 2017 by Dr. Theodoros Tsagaris to develop a wholly proprietary framework encompassing a pipeline of quantitative trading, from alpha prototyping to execution, and to fully automate all aspects of trading.  
The combination of AI research, latest technology stack, in-house engineering expertise and a deep knowledge of financial markets has produced superior results trading short to medium term strategies across various financial instruments and markets. 

HOW WE DO IT

The strategy invests across asset classes and relies solely on quantitative analysis to build hundreds of thousands of signals in real-time. These signals are then aggregated into a single overview, which is translated to appropriate order types and executed across multiple venues. The end-to-end pipeline is entirely systematic and proprietary; it examines partially observable information in the market to extract temporal inefficiencies and infer tradeable insights.
