Margin

Definition

When investments are made via futures, a small proportion of a contract’s value is paid to a central counterparty. This is known as ‘margin’ and is maintained by the investor as the contract rises and falls in value.

Approach

We design intelligent investment systems that evolve as financial markets change through time. Our decisions are driven by the empirical analysis of data, rather than instinct or intuition.

Strategies

Winton’s systematic strategies are all underpinned by the belief that markets, rather than being efficient, exhibit hard-to-detect yet identifiable patterns.

Research

Winton’s considerable investment in scientific research has produced a wide range of new innovations ranging from new investment strategies to enhanced research methodology.
