Scientific Method

Definition

A means of uncovering and refining knowledge through empirical observation and rigorous testing. This involves gathering data, forming hypotheses, and testing the hypotheses on the data. See our video.

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.
