MDOTM, a provider in quantitative investment advisory services to institutional investors, and Raiffeisen Capital Management have announced a new strategic partnership.
Thanks to this initiative, the range of Raiffeisen Capital Management’s sustainable funds will be used by MDOTM to offer to the market socially responsible investment (SRI) solutions that benefit from the efficiency brought by artificial intelligence (AI) technology in portfolio construction.
Raiffeisen Capital Management’s offering in the sustainable investment segment comprises eight investment funds with different risk/return profiles: Sustainable Balanced, GreenBonds, Diversified Sustainable, Sustainable Solidity, Sustainable Emerging Markets, Sustainable Short Term, Sustainable Momentum and Sustainable Equity.
MDOTM is a fintech company that develops investment strategies for financial institutions with the help of AI, machine learning and advanced statistical methods. The startup acts as an advisor to banks, wealth managers, asset management companies, and insurance companies by supporting them in specific areas which require high degree of technological specialisation by providing them with systematic models for investment decision making.
"At a time where sustainable investments benefit from increasing interest from institutional investors, we are very pleased with this agreement which will allow us to offer our consolidated expertise in socially responsible investments through new innovative and fintech channels such as MDOTM’s quantitative advisory service," said Donato Giannico, Italy country head of Raiffeisen Capital Management.
"We are proud of this partnership which allows us to combine two highly topical issues which will inevitably be highly relevant in the years to come," commented Tommaso Migliore, CEO and co-founder of MDOTM. "On the one hand, the SRI theme, on the other, the efficiency brought to the investment process by artificial intelligence. We have chosen to work with Raiffeisen CM, a European leader in SRI investing, to offer banks and wealth managers the opportunity to add sustainable, innovative and efficient investment solutions to their product offering."
