This Is Why Denali Is the Right Strategy for You
Denali takes simple investment theory and puts it to work in sophisticated algorithms, taking into account vast amounts of data.
A long-only strategy, Denali seeks to gain opportunities in the market with the simplicity that if an investment doesn’t perform it is removed.
The overall goal is to profit from trends and to eliminate behavioral bias inherent in stock investing, to have systems invest “by the numbers” with a singular focus on gains and risk management.
This makes for simple risk controls implemented within sophisticated systems as well, Denali removes investments going down expediently, historically reducing risk while increasing gains.
Overall, Denali uses big data analysis and the removal of human emotion from the investment process to meet its intended goal of beating the market regardless of market conditions.

“The number one thing I want to make sure of is that the models are not going to own anything that is going down. That is hard-coded. It is never going to happen. Denali doesn’t care about the market as a whole. It only cares about finding opportunities that meet the criteria for capital deployment. It is a very conservative approach. The bar that we need to clear to put money to work is very high.”
