Sit back and relax - these automated portfolios are designed for an array of market environments.
Quantbase is the world's first quantitative hedge fund for everyone. We're an SEC-registered investment adviser, like Betterment or Wealthfront, but specifically for high-risk/high-upside automated portfolios. This means we provide passive access to the advanced quantitative investing strategies previously unavailable to retail investors but loved by the rich. We research investment strategies, many sourced from hedge funds and quantitative investing papers, test them against decades of market data, automate the top 5%, and make them and their data available to you on Quantbase to invest in for yourself. We then continuously run personalized data-crunches on your investments to provide recommendations, further optimizing your Quantbase portfolio.
How does Quantbase work?
You invest money from your bank account into our automated investing strategies, and our strategies do the work of rebalancing your portfolio according to the rules of the strategy. Each strategy is professionally-constructed with years (or even decades) of performance data you can see for yourself. These allow you to see how the strategies perform in different market conditions and scenarios. Our strategies also provide quantitative, personalized portfolio recommendations to continuously optimize your total portfolio. Overall, Quantbase is a comprehensive, data-first investing platform.
How much does Quantbase cost?
Quantbase charges no performance fees and a fraction of the AUM fees hedge funds charge. Our fee structure is a simple $5/mo for accounts under $6,000 OR 1% annually of the managed assets for accounts greater than $6,000. For example, $10,000 would be managed in world-class investing strategies for just $7.83/mo. Our partners may charge a separate subscription fee for access to their strategies.
How do withdrawals work?
Liquidity is one of our main mandates. You can withdraw money anytime - we have 0 lock-up periods. The only wait times you'll experience are for ACH transfers to/from your bank account.
Does Quantbase use AI?
Quantbase's funds use AI to help make decisions, but don't use AI to make decisions. Each Quantbase fund uses its own set of algorithmic rules to determine rebalance times and allocations. That means when an investment occurs, you can always point to a specific rule/factor that caused it to occur. Some of Quantbase's funds incorporate flavors of ML/AI (for example, to conduct sentiment analysis), but no Quantbase fund uses AI to the extent that it is a black box that makes un-traceable decisions.

Quantbase partners with Alpaca Securities LLC as our broker and custodian. All cash balances are FDIC-insured, and all investments are SIPC-insured through Alpaca. We manage your assets, while Alpaca holds the assets and executes the trades. Learn more about Alpaca here: https://alpaca.markets/broker#regulatory
How do you handle security?
We take security extremely seriously. We protect your online data using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) and 256-bit bank-level encryption. Your orders and assets are sent through our securities broker Alpaca, an industry-leading firm with over 100,000 connected clients.
How do you handle taxes?
We provide documents annually as they become available through your dashboard. As a quantitative hedge fund, most assets are traded frequently and taxed as short term capital gains, but our returns are high enough to compensate for the extra taxes.
