What makes this screener different?
What makes this screener different or better than the one I already use, you may be thinking.
Four filters !
The first thing you will notice when you use the screener are the four filters (or funnels) that look like this:

You simply select up to four ratios and then use the range slider to choose the range of companies you want to include (in 10% increments).
How the filters work ?

What do investors like you say?
Before I tell you more about the screener here is what investors just like you say about the screener.
when I first read your paper “Quantitative Value Investing in Europe - what works for achieving alpha“ back in 2012, I must admit I was sceptic.
It looked to me as a fine and well documented paper… about attractive but theoretical returns you could have achieved if you HAD followed the strategies described in it.
But I was disappointed in the returns well paid “professional” money advisers achieved with my money (mostly bankers who only thought of their own pockets promoting their own funds).
So I decided to give it a try and started using your screener to select stocks for my portfolio and it turned out to be by far the best financial decision I have ever made in my life!
It really comes close to the theoretical returns you exposed in your paper and it beats well known market indices all the time. If you had told me this in 2011, I would not have believed it.
I admit 5 years is a relative short period to make some definitive conclusions and in general the stock market was in the last 5 years not to bad either.
However I already have enough confidence in your screener to stay true – even in falling markets - to my system of selecting stocks.
In short, what I mean to say is: your screener is really important for me as a base for selecting stocks for our financial future. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your insights on investing through your paper, your blogs and newsletters."
"Tim I want to which you a happy new year and thank you for your work on your screener.
Last year (2016) I had a 21% profit, and I could not have done it without your software."
Jasper, The Netherlands
"Thanks for the great scanner. It is even more powerful than I expected and based on my experience with it in the last few days it allows me to find potentially undervalued stocks that I would not have been able to find with free scanners or Google searches.
I decided to use your scanner because:
- The customer statements were all enthusiastic.
- You have more parameters to refine the search.
- You always made it clear what the sources of your methodologies were that you implemented in the scanner.”
"Tim, I would like to thank you for the fantastic database that you are providing.
For quite a while I had been fascinated and captured by quantitative investing, but as a private investor I never have had access to a powerful database. It was difficult for me to find good investment opportunities.
When I started to use the screener of quant-investing when my performance started to boost tremendously. I now do have the possibility to search for and to get a very quick view of the key figures that really count for an asset.
Actually, the biggest risk of my future performance is probably not to have access to such a database.
At first glance, perhaps, the price of the screener is not cheap, but the potential investments that I find with the screener definitely are!
It’s a fair deal and the rewards are definitely worth the price."
“The Quant Investing Screener is by far the best screener out there. It has many metrics / ratios that other screeners don’t have and which are predictive of future alpha.
Since I started using it, my investment returns have beaten the market by an average of 5% per year. This is despite me not being able to totally curtail my inhibitive behavioural biases!"
"The screener has helped me to achieve an average yearly profit between 20% and 23%.
So not just talk, but real life results!"
Roland, the Netherlands.
"The Quant Investing screener is a valuable and easy-to-use tool to select investment ideas that fit into my investment strategy."
"The Quant Investing screener has helped me not only to find new, good investment ideas via screening, but also to avoid bad investment ideas."
"The Quant Investing screener is, in my opinion, the best equity screener available to the retail investor like myself.
Using the strategies recommended by the website, I have achieved market-beating returns that even professional investors would be proud of.
The screener covers dozens of the major markets around the world, and you have access to a wide array of quantitative metrics to help inform your decision.
In addition, Tim and his staff are very responsive to queries and are always willing to accommodate requests.
So in summary, very highly recommended and well worth the subscription!"
"Hey Tim, I’ve been using screener for three weeks and it rocks! Good job!"
“In spite of using Bloomberg for my every day work, I use the screener from quant-ivesting.com for my idea generation.
In my opinion the screen has the highest functionality and best database for European value investors.”
Nils, German family office
"The Quant Investing Screener is a great tool. It covers all the countries that I can invest in, even with data for quite small companies.
And don’t forget to read the blog!"
"I have been using the Quant investing screener to trade stocks in the USA using O'Shaugnessy's methods.
The screener is so simple to use it takes less than 5 minutes to find which stocks I want to trade. The screener is reliable and the results are consistent with back testing results. So far this year I am up 15%.
I like to understand the details of trading systems and Tim has been fantastic at explaining how each screener works.
He responds to emails within the day and he really wants to help.
I have also found the new systems that Tim tests to be really helpful. I have since added one of these systems to my portfolio.
I highly recommend Tim and his Quant Investing screener.”
