Barron’s: Investment Firm Two Sigma Is Giving Investors Access to Its Software — for a Price
Posted on November 19, 2019
Avi Salzman of Barron’s wrote an article about Venn’s launch this week. In his article, he noted, “Top quantitative hedge funds rarely give outside investors a peek behind the curtain. But one firm known for its secretive process and strong returns is starting to open up—and expects to cash in.”
He also highlighted the efficiencies Venn’s factor-based platform offers. “Two Sigma’s program can quickly pull in data about a client’s investment positions, and run analyses based on factors such as momentum and credit. As investors increasingly use factor methods to guide their decisions, the software can clue them in to areas where they may have too little or too much concentration, and help them adjust their risk.”

Two Sigma Investor Solutions, LP (TSIS) issued a press release that includes a partial client list intended to provide a representative selection of different types of Venn subscribers. Subscribers were selected on the basis of industry type and estimated assets under management and not with regard to performance-based criteria. Some media outlets, without TSIS’s participation, have selected a particular subset of TSIS’s original partial list, which reflects different selection criteria (or no criteria) that TSIS did not control. It should not be assumed that any subscriber identified endorses or recommends Venn or TSIS. Certain subscribers receive Venn Pro through a sponsored arrangement with TSIS’s affiliates.
