We are different.

Deshe is a Fundamental-Quantitative investment management firm identifying the right fundamental factors to produce remarkable absolute returns.

Deshe’s model systematically analyzes the financial statements of mid- & large-cap US publicly traded equities each quarter. Our AI identifies the most critical combinations of metrics that drive stock performance & movement per sector per stock. We build & rebalance our Long/Short portfolio quarterly, with focused holding periods per stock. Our AI constantly & dynamically manages portfolio risk, approaching beta 0, by creating low, stable alpha with low net exposure.

Our firm’s unique, outsider perspective is inspired by our prior Fintech entrepreneurship developing novel valuation technology and Technion-based academic research. Deshe is not HFT (high-frequency trading), Activist, Long-term growth, or Technical Analysis-based.

Deshe Alpha Fund 

US Market neutral equity fund

Long/Short strategy focused on mid and large-cap US listed equities. Our balanced, liquid, & diversified portfolio is built quarterly, with dynamic & constant AI risk management. The Fund’s performance provides low volatility, net exposure, & correlation to the market, while striving to outperform comparable benchmarks including the HFRI and S&P 500.

Deshe Alpha is managed with the highest level of transparency and compliance. Our clients include institutional investors, Family Offices, senior executives in the financial & retail sector, hi-tech entrepreneurs, and UHNW investors.

Philosophy

Producing alpha in any macro environment by harnessing math & Fundamental Analysis

Technology

Deshe’s AI analyses 100+ factors in public companies’ financial statements, creating a stochastic model for each parameter and its derivatives. Our algorithmic-driven approach creates two main advantages: time & quality.

Deshe’s AI can digest thousands of financial statement reports in minutes and recommends buy/sell orders, including exact funds allocation. This analysis provides significantly greater breadth of review, is dramatically faster, and eliminates non-fundamental data influence. Moreover, our model is built with reinforced Machine Learning & AI, which constantly improves our proprietary investment systems.
