This month’s meet-up will feature a presentation by David Kedmey, President and co-founder of EidoSearch, a Toronto based financial technology firm founded in 2009. David will provide an overview of EidoSearch's technology, and the newly discovered green field in “unclassified” price trends that pattern search technology is now able to deliver to the market. David will also validate the predictive nature of price trends, based on years of research and hundreds of millions of simulations, and he will briefly review how these concepts can be applied to a systematic trading strategy to generate excess returns (please see chart below).
David Kedmey is President and co-founder of EidoSearch with Steven Zhang. He previously worked in the mergers and acquisitions group in the investment banking division at Oppenheimer & Co. in New York. Before joining Oppenheimer & Co., Mr. Kedmey worked at the Alvery Bartlett Group, where he raised capital for its hedge fund management company and for private placements in real estate and energy. He holds an M.B.A. (with Honors) in Finance, Accounting and Entrepreneurship from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
