In the rapidly evolving world of financial technology, emerges as a standout innovator. Founded by a group of traders frustrated by the traditional constraints of portfolio management, iQuant has embraced the cutting-edge potential of Artificial Intelligence and Quantum computing to revolutionize the finance sector. This interview offers an intimate look into the entrepreneurial journey of Adrian Campbell, iQuant Funds’s chairman, as he shares the motivations, obstacles, and technological advancements that have catapulted iQuant to global prominence.

  1. What inspired the creation of iQuant, and what problem were you aiming to solve?

The concept for iQuant originated from our own experiences as traders. We often found ourselves juggling multiple screens, analyzing vast amounts of data, and spending countless hours away from our families. We knew there had to be a better way to manage our portfolios without sacrificing our personal lives. That’s when the idea to harness the power of AI and machine learning came into focus. We wanted a system that could automate our trading strategies, allowing us to achieve high returns while still enjoying our time with loved ones.

  1. How did iQuant transition from a personal trading tool to a billion-dollar enterprise?

Initially, we developed the AI model to assist with our day-to-day trading, focusing on day trading CFDs and equities on the ASX market. The success of our initial model led us to expand its scope to include other exchanges, such as NASDAQ and NYSE, and transition to a long-only strategy with Modern Portfolio Theory. As we continued to refine our AI and genetic modelling techniques, the system’s capabilities grew exponentially, attracting interest from outside investors. Our successful Series A funding round, combined with a proven track record, propelled us into the broader market, ultimately leading to our current billion-dollar valuation.

  1. What role does Quantum AI play in iQuant’s success, and how does it differ from traditional AI approaches?

Quantum AI represents a significant leap forward in computational power and efficiency. It allows us to process enormous volumes of data, uncovering patterns and relationships that traditional AI might miss. This technology is crucial for our daily market forecasts and portfolio adjustments. With Quantum AI, we can explore multiple scenarios simultaneously, optimizing our portfolios for maximum returns while minimizing risks. This level of sophistication is what sets us apart from traditional funds and other AI-based financial platforms.

  1. Who are your primary target markets, and how does iQuant perform on global exchanges?

Our platform is designed to work across various global exchanges, including NASDAQ, NYSE, ASX, and Hong Kong Stock Exchange, among others. We partner with leading fund managers in each country, operating under a revenue-sharing model that allows us to tailor our services to the unique characteristics of each market. Our AI models are adaptable, and we update them daily to reflect changing market conditions, ensuring consistent performance across all exchanges.

  1. How does iQuant approach risk management, and what measures are in place to ensure portfolio stability?

Risk management is at the core of our strategy. We apply Modern Portfolio Theory to optimize our portfolios, focusing on diversification and maximizing the Sharpe ratio. Our AI models process a wide range of data, including market, social, technical, and fundamental factors, to generate daily forecasts and adjust portfolios accordingly. This approach allows us to maintain a high level of stability while achieving strong returns.

  1. Has iQuant faced any significant challenges or setbacks, and how did you overcome them?

Like any startup, we’ve encountered our share of challenges. One of the biggest hurdles was ensuring our models were robust enough to handle different market conditions without losing effectiveness. We spent years refining our risk management strategies, integrating advanced AI techniques, and applying genetic modelling to improve our models’ accuracy. These efforts paid off, as we’ve seen consistent growth and performance across all markets we operate in.

  1. How does iQuant differentiate itself from competitors in the financial AI sector?

Our focus on Quantum AI and genetic modelling sets us apart from other AI-based financial platforms. These technologies enable us to process and analyze data at unprecedented speeds, allowing us to create highly dynamic, risk-managed portfolios. Additionally, our revenue-sharing model fosters strong partnerships with leading fund managers, providing them with exclusive access to our technology while allowing us to tap into their market expertise. This collaborative approach has been key to our success and growth.

  1. What are iQuant’s plans for the future, and how do you see the platform evolving over time?

We’re constantly exploring new opportunities to expand our offerings. Our future roadmap includes intraday forecasting, futures, and options trading. We also plan to work closely with our partners to develop specialized portfolios for specific markets, such as tech, green, emerging, and finance. Ultimately, we aim to reshape the global landscape of equity portfolio management, providing innovative solutions that drive high returns while managing risks effectively.

  1. How can interested investors and partners get involved with iQuant, and what should they know before reaching out?

We welcome inquiries from investors and partners interested in leveraging our technology. To ensure a successful collaboration, we require a minimum level of capital and an openness to embracing AI-based portfolio management. Our partnership model is designed to be flexible, allowing us to tailor our services to meet the unique needs of each partner. We’re committed to building strong relationships based on open communication, accessibility, flexibility, and mutual benefit.

  1. What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs and startups looking to enter the financial AI sector?

My advice would be to focus on innovation and never stop learning. The financial AI sector is highly dynamic, with new technologies and trends emerging constantly. To succeed, you must stay ahead of the curve, embrace new ideas, and be willing to adapt your strategies as needed. Additionally, building strong partnerships and maintaining open communication with your team and stakeholders are crucial for long-term success. Surround yourself with talented individuals who share your vision, and don’t be afraid to take calculated risks. The journey may be challenging, but the rewards are worth it.

These initiatives align with the ‘We the UAE 2031’ vision and support the UAE’s ambition to establish itself as a global hub for the new economy over the next decade.

These initiatives are designed to create significant positive impacts across all sectors in a short timeframe. They play a crucial role in accelerating the UAE Government’s strategic foresight objectives, with a strong emphasis on financial outcomes that align with the ‘We the UAE 2031’ vision. This vision requires intensified efforts to meet key national indicators, which will positively influence society and the country’s diverse industries and sectors.

The UAE Ministry of Finance today announced the implementation of transformational projects that support the country’s efforts to transition towards the future and enhance its competitiveness, in line with the ‘We the UAE 2031’ vision and the UAE’s efforts to become the global hub for the new economy over the next ten years.

These projects are unique in achieving a significant positive impact in all sectors within short periods of time. These projects support the UAE Government’s efforts to accelerate the achievement of the government’s foresight objectives, with a focus on achieving financial results in line with the ‘We the UAE 2031’ vision, which requires doubling efforts to achieve key national indicators of the vision positively reflecting on society and the country’s various industries and sectors.

His Excellency Mohamed Hadi Al Hussaini, Minister of State for Financial Affairs, highlighted that the UAE, in its second 50-year journey, prioritizes developing governmental work to be able to meet the future requirements of the nation by adopting new methodologies and ways of working through the digital transformation. He noted that these are pursued by the UAE to achieve a quantum leap in project implementation, budget preparation, and resource management.

His Excellency emphasized the Ministry’s efforts to develop government services by focusing on areas that enhance the competitiveness of the economic environment and its ability to attract foreign investments. Among these efforts are empowering Emiratis to represent the UAE internationally.

Transformational Projects

The first project, ‘Developing the Local Debt Capital Market in the Country’, is a joint project with the Central Bank of the UAE by establishing programs for issuing local public debt instruments, represented by bonds and Islamic treasury sukuk in dirhams, and primarily trading them in the primary and secondary local markets, aiming to build and enhance the yield curve in UAE dirhams and provide reference pricing points for local financing operations carried out by financial institutions within the state, thereby enhancing market activity, expanding the investor base, and developing a highly efficient financial market in the UAE.

The Ministry of Finance is also working on implementing the project ‘Enhancing the Presence of Specialized Emirati Leadership in the Financial Field at International Forums’ which serves as the main supporter in making the UAE the most prominent in international cooperation over the next ten years. This is a joint project with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aimed at investing in empowering national talents to occupy Emirati memberships in leadership positions within international organizations, their committees, or federations linked to the country’s agenda. This will enhance the UAE’s presence in international forums and support its participation in shaping international strategic decisions and building economic partnerships with countries worldwide, through the leadership and membership of national talents from the Ministry of Finance in various international organizations, forums, and boards of directors.
