About Quant Investing
Hi and welcome to the Quant Investing website!
Our aim at Quant Investing is to help investors like you increase your investment returns.
We do this through our stock screener and newsletter services.
The founder of Quant Investing is Tim du Toit (MBA - Finance Indiana University).
Learn from his mistakes
When Tim started investing in 1987 he made every investment mistake you can think of until he realised that investing was not a new activity and that there must be a lot of good research and books about what has worked.
Not in the short term but over long periods of time in up and down markets.
Since then he has done exactly that. Reading and studying every article, research paper and book he could find to help him improve his investment performance.
Something he still does, and that is where we can help you, to not make the mistakes he has made and to benefit from his on going research.
Tim did not try to learn all about investment on his own. Before starting Quant Investing he spent more than 16 years working in banking and fund management in South Africa and Germany.
Could not find a screener he liked
After leaving the banking industry in 2012 Tim could not find a stock screener that met his needs in terms of the number of companies, ratios and indicators to invest his own money so he decided to develop a screener and Quant Investing was born.
From a small start with just two people we have grown to a team of people. Our goal has remained the same, to help you increase your investment returns.
Built by investors for investors
The screener is not just a product we sell it’s something we use every day to invest our own money.
It is thus a screener built and used by investors for investors.
Because we want to improve our own returns we test and write about new strategies and ideas we find all the time.
You can read everything in our blog which is free, simply click on the following link: Quant Investing Blog
If we find an idea or investment strategy that REALLY works (we test most strategies again) we immediately include all the ratios and indicators you need to implement it in the screener.
You can find a summary of all the best investment strategies we have tested here: Best investment strategies.
That is the reason why the screener already has 110 ratios and indicators you can use to find investment ideas.

This newsletter save you time and increases your returns
To help investors that do not have the time to look for and research companies we started a newsletter service.
The aim of the Quαnt Value newsletter is to apply the 80/20, or really the 90/10 principle to investing as it incorporates all our best research and ideas in summarised form.
It allows you to get 90% of investment returns while spending only 10% of the time you would normally have to. The newsletter does this with a more than 15 year market beating track record.
