Validation Process

We view validation and verification as two separate processes. "Verification": do the program and model do what they are supposed to/designed to do? E.g. if it is supposed to trade when condition x is true, does it? "Validation": does it predict well enough to consistantly generate Alpha?

In the post crisis environment, trading model validation has never been more important. As regulators look to encompass this area and make models subject to more stringent tests, model validation will continue to continue to be an expanding field.

Therefore, well managed trading model validation is an important source of competitive advantage for investment professionals.

Trading model validation as well as risk identification and mitigation is what Research Unlimited is all about. With our Alpha Platform we provide you a clear and straightforward methodology to implement (your clients') unique risk profiles.

Empowering our clients with these tools is and has always been our main goal.
