0 Replies and 6703 Views Who makes and why?  6703  0 Started by  timvdh is a hobbyist project designed and maintained by Tim van der Horst, It was started in 2010. It is not open source (yet - I am thinking about making it an open source project). The aivest idea is that there are some quantitative methods that everyone can use to structure a well balanced stock portfolio. I love stocks, I think investing in stocks makes a lot of sense. I am also using to test new technologies.

0 Replies and 11797 Views New Statistics Feature  11797  0 Started by  timvdh It is now possible to get more insight into the selection algorithm. Check the new statistics page: This lists the probability of all stocks selectable by the aivest optimizer. The list is being updated on a daily basis. You may also check if a certain stock is present in the list by using the filter under the name heading. In general the top 1500 stocks (worldwide) ranked by market capitalization are supposed to be contained in the...

Since the algorithm chooses stocks randomly but prefers stocks with a higher market capitalization, you will often see large positions of highly capitalized stocks.

0 Replies and 11368 Views How do I create a portfolio?  11368  0 Started by  timvdh aivest will only suggest a portfolio, i.e. certain amounts of certain stocks, that you may then actually buy through your broker. You only have to enter a target amount and the currency you would like to use. The target amount does not include transaction costs, i.e. when you enter '5000 USD' as a target amount, then a portfolio worth about 5000 USD will be constructed by the optimizer. However, since you need to pay fees to brokers, exchanges etc. to order stocks, your total investment wi...

0 Replies and 11070 Views How does aivest construct portfolios?  11070  0 Started by  timvdh aivest constructs globally diversified minimum variance portfolios. The aim is to construct a portfolio, that yields a similar return as a global stock index at a similar risk, but with a much smaller subset of stocks (i.e. while a global stock index contains thousands of different stocks, a typical aivest portfolio will only contain about 15 different stocks). Harry Markowitz published the basics of the quantitative analysis used by aivest in 1952 and received the Nobel Memorial Prize in Eco...
