About QEX Asset Management

QEX is a systematic investing firm that uses a disciplined and rule-based approach to financial markets. Investment decisions are guided by predefined strategies and algorithms rather than human intuition. This method relies on the systematic application of quantitative models and statistical analysis to identify and exploit patterns, trends, and anomalies within the market.

The goal of systematic investing is to remove emotional biases and subjectivity from decision-making, relying instead on empirical data and historical patterns to inform investment choices.

Do you have a customer satisfaction or refund policy?

I'll explain fees fully before we ever get started. In short, fees are charged in arrears (after the fact) so you never have any future obligation. You can leave at any time and we will assist in all transitions.

How do you charge for your services?

Fees are based solely on the amount of assets managed. Fees are debited for you by the custodian at the end of each month.

How much risk should I be willing to take?

That's an excellent question and a very personal one. The best way to figure out your risk tolerance is to talk through different scenarios about when you might need to use your investments and how you would feel if the markets drop in price.

Have you ever been charged with any breaches?


What services do you provide? What are your specialties?

My main focus is asset management and in particular systematic investing strategies that take the emotion of investment decision making. We've got several models that range from very conservative to very aggressive that can be used individually or blended to try and match your own risk tolerance.
