We've turned our experience and expertise in AI/ML based venture investing into a new, all Valkyrie, venture. Valkyrie Vertex is our data science powered investment group. The algorithms we develop in R&D enhance the performance of our funds and inform our theses in private equities, VC funds, and real estate investments.
AI/ML can inform the alpha and beta profiles leading to higher-expected-returns on lower-than-average risk compared to current venture fund or fund of co-investments investing offers. Our machine learning capabilities lend themselves well to venture funds and venture-backed companies. We address a fundamental issue we've addressed within venture:
Venture Capitalists have a large skill gap
Differentiating between skill and luck is difficult to impossible for an investor
While difficult for investors, our machine learning and custom algorithmic techniques can separate luck from skill
Leveraging a variety of industry standard and alternative data, we can identify funds and companies that are more likely to outperform their peers in the market
