15 Contest Entrants Invited to License their Strategies to Quantopian

Below is our latest community newsletter. We hope you enjoy it!

Last week, we invited 15 new authors to license their strategy to us for use in our asset management business. All 15 of them were discovered through their entries to our daily contest!

Entering our contest is the best way to give your strategy visibility in our evaluation process as we search for more strategies to fund.

Fundamental Strategy Templates

Many of our funded authors have relied upon price-driven strategies. As we continue to evaluate and add algorithms to our portfolio, we will be especially interested in new strategies that take advantage of a broader range of fundamental factors.

We've produced a library of fundamental factors using data from FactSet. Clone the algos below and improve them with your best ideas. When you're ready, enter your work into the contest to see how your version shapes up out of sample!

We'll be adding more templates in the future, so keep an eye on the Algo Template tag in the Quantopian forums.

In this quick video, we review our daily contest criteria.

We also have the following resources in place to help you quickly get up to speed and started on your contest algorithm:

Q in the Classroom

We have recently launched “Quantopian in the Classroom” - a program that helps students gain insight into how to research and backtest their investment ideas, code up their strategy into an algorithm, and then enter it into our daily contest to see how it stacks up in comparison to their peers.

If you think Quantopian would be a good fit in one of your classes and if you are interested in learning more, please reach out to us at [email protected].
