Make money. Use that money to make more money. Repeat.


Empirical is scaling up its trading operations, and quantitative research and capital allocations program for its hedge fund-of-funds investment strategy of arbitrage and high-frequency trading algorithms.

Algorithms are used to automatically analyze thousands of events and react by opening and closing positions with automation and speed, with little directional market risk. 

The quantitative research and capital allocations program focuses on algorithms that utilize probability modelling, data visualization, trend observations, sentiment analysis, pattern recognition, volume, order flow, and auction market theory, with the goal of discovering repeatable patterns to predict trading opportunities with automated execution of clear entry signals with automated profit targets and stop losses.


The program uses an active fully systematic market-neutral investment approach targeted at generating returns independent of market conditions utilizing high-frequency trading algorithms with direct market access to multiple digital asset and derivatives exchanges.


High-frequency trading algorithms are designed to act upon small movements in prices, the sort of movement that would make a few dollars at a small scale, but can deliver large returns with tens of thousands of small but profitable transactions per day. ​


Empirical offers private investors perpetual one year term fixed interest notes.
