The hedge fund market has seen massive adoption of data-drive, quantitative approach. In an article published in Wired Technology in Apr 2017, it states:
“There was $38 billion of institutional investment into algorithmically driven hedge funds in the first quarter of 2016 alone. In October 2016, one of the biggest players, Renaissance Technologies, which has $60 billion under management, announced that it received $7 billion in investment the previous year.”
“The time will come when no human investment manager will be able to beat the computer,” David Siegel, the co-founder of quantitative fund Two Sigma, which manages $35 billion, told an investment conference in 2015.
