With the new early detection system, the YUKKA News & Trend Lab complements our broadly based investment process in an important area: the market sentiment. Thanks to YUKKA Lab’s innovative approach, our investment process gives us a head start over traditional approaches.
20 years ago, a very senior Private Banker told us in a training for future private bankers „ private banking is all about emotions“. At the time, I was not exactly sure if I understood what he meant. In the meantime, I guess I figured it out. Empathy allows us to really understand our clients and this understanding helps us to find the best solution. The sentiment analysis from YukkaLab bridges the need for empathy to scalability. It provides the user with near to real-time information about current sentiments in financial markets - allowing the user to assess how clients might feel and therefore reach out in a pro-active manner.
With this fund and thanks to Yukka Lab, one is able to benefit from the unemotional evaluation of financial news and invest accordingly. It is a matter of recognizing early on when the huge turning points are reached in the market and to limit loss-making periods. All existing systems, robo-advisor, and algorithms mainly base their investment decisions on historical data sets. Here we are talking about real-time analysis and news evaluation. In our opinion, this is an important game changer.
YUKKA Lab‘s sentiment data provide a valuable contribution to the achievement of a higher accuracy in the volatility prognosis for single asset types. … Especially for mandates with explicit risk budgets and/or target values for volatilities or for the Value-at-Risk, the usage of YUKKA Lab‘s sentiment data leads to a higher degree of target attainment.
The combination of high quality, reliable finance news, and innovative technology for sentiment analysis creates tremendous value. Finance market players receive an entirely new set of indicators.
We have found the YUKKA Lab signal to be much more effective in timing equity markets than any other traditional trend following signal commonly used. Due to its construction, it is capable of eliminating most of the noise from true trend shifts and as a consequence delivers less false signals. Applied as a hedge overlay to a pure equity portfolio or to a multi-asset portfolio the signal dramatically increases the risk/return efficiency.
