QuantLab (Pty) Ltd is a quantitative investment research firm. Our mission is to empower private traders with superior investment research that they can apply to their investment decisions.

We employ the power of quantitative analysis to uncover patterns in the equity markets that exhibit a high degree of statistical significance. With the findings of our research, we handcraft objective investment models that rely on statistics as opposed to gut feel. Our philosophy is underpinned by one leading principle: quantify, quantify, quantify!

With over a decade's worth of experience developing and deploying quantified strategies in live trading environments, we have the necessary skill and wherewithal to deliver high quality trading methodologies typically found in successful hedge funds. Our research has been recognised in the industry as innovative and original: two large firms, including an offshore hedge fund, employ trading methodologies developed in-house at QuantLab.
