Tell me about the key features of your product or service?
Akash: Trill A.I. is the next-generation platform for asset managers to quickly custom-build and deploy self-learning, artificial intelligence models to the cloud, at scale. Using this software, portfolio managers and analysts can select what kinds of data they want to analyze and tailor a deep-learning model to their specific investment style and portfolio characteristics. Once online, each A.I. model learns in real-time and delivers predictive portfolio analytics and financial analysis to help the user select securities and optimize portfolio allocation management. We handle everything from data mining, data munging, storage, distributed cloud computation, optimization, and automation.
What makes your product or service so innovative, and what are the hot button issues it addresses for companies?
Akash: Deep-learning technology is less than five years old with no applications in long-term asset management, including the mutual funds and ETFs that run $13 trillion of consumer money in the United States. A.I. is the next evolution of robo-advisors and based on customer feedback; Trill A.I. is the only organization leveraging deep learning for long-term investing. Currently, financial asset management companies are in a state of flux with huge outflows of dollars (trillions) from active managers to passive index funds and large fee compression due to competition for customers. Companies are being forced to cut back on research, internal investment, R&D, and financial analysis. This reduces performance and contributes to a negative feedback loop of customer loss and further fee compression. Trill A.I. can cost-efficiently augment, and improve the analysis process, allowing asset managers to leverage exponentially more data for cheaper using the latest cloud computing and deep learning technology without any of the fixed costs of talent acquisition, development time, and infrastructure. We directly reduce analysis costs and fees while improving fund performance, leading to greater customer retention and attraction.
