Get investment ideas with this Bloomberg alternative at a fraction of the price
When I left my banking job in 2012 I lost access to Bloomberg.
I wanted to continue investing my own money, something I have done since 1987 so I had to find a Bloomberg alternative fast.
However it was difficult to find a screener that met all my needs which were mainly as follows:
- Companies on developed markets worldwide (New Zealand to Canada)
- Large to nano cap companies
- Lots of valuation ratios (based on profits and cash flow)
- Lots of quality ratios
- Lots of share price momentum ratios
- Piotroski F-Score
- Market value (in different currencies)
- Average daily traded value (in different currencies)
- Magic Formula values (Joel Greenblatt’s book got me started with quantitative investing)
As I could not find a screener that met all our needs a friend and I decided to build a screener to invest our own money and the Quant Investing screener was born.
We launched the screener in September 2014 and have improved on it all the time based on our own research and the back tests we do all the time.
22,000 Companies and 110 ratios
At the moment the screener database has over 22,000 companies in 36 countries (all developed markets world-wide) and more than 110 ratios and indicators you can use to find investment ideas.
You can see all the ratios and indicators as well as detailed information on all of them in the glossary.
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 a screener built and used by investors for investors.
Because we of course want to improve our own returns we test and write about new strategies and ideas we find all the time. You can read about everything on our blog which is free.
You can find the blog here: Quant Investing Blog.
If we find an idea or investment strategy that REALLY works we immediately include all the ratios and indicators you need to implement it in the screener.
The best investment strategies
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.
You can see a list of all the ratios and indicators included in the screener – and how they are calculated - here: Quant Investing screener glossary.
High quality up to date data
Because we invest our own money using the screener we make VERY sure that it is always up to date with high quality data.
Due to contractual reason we cannot name our data supplier, but what we can say is it’s one of the big data suppliers that large fund managers also use.
It is so expensive that very few individual investors can afford it. This is also the reason why we have made the screener available to other investors, because only together we can afford such a high quality data source.
Keep the price low
Our cost structure is really simple and we do our best to keep prices low to make it a good investment even if your portfolio is small. That is also how I started more than 30 years ago.
