Welcome To Logical-Invest.com

Logical-Invest.com started out as a place to join Frank Grossmann’s articles about quantitative research topics and popular Global Growth Strategies and now has grown to include a team of researchers, strategy developers and successful investors. We share a passion for logical, rules based investing and a willingness to share our learning about quantitative research topicswith others.

How can we support you with Quantitative Research Topics?

  • New to investing – why start from scratch?  We openly share our strategy framework and underlying mechanism.  We don’t use  “magical” or hidden processes.  Our many years developing and refining research and strategies investing are now available to help your investment portfolio.
  • Are you working long weeks and have no time for diving into quantitative research topics? Our strategies are designed to be quick and easy to use.  Check out our strategies, discuss them at our forum, make up your mind and gain confidence. Once you feel comfortable, use our research and subscriptions and know you are on the right path.
  • Have you lost trust in banks, hedge funds, commission based investment advisors? Feeling ripped off paying 2-5% for obscure “black-box” funds which perform below average? This was our motivation for taking investments management into our own hands. We realize anybody using our strategies deserves what we always looked for: Transparency, logical reasoning and a space to find answers.

Some words on us

We use quantitative based strategies to manage our own successful investments. We enjoy researching new methods and adapting them to an ever changing investment market.

Researching and studying the markets make us tick and we enjoy sharing what we have learned. We want to help others feel safer, reduce their investment expenses and improve their investment returns. We know how hard it is to build the confidence to get started and even harder to separate soundly engineered and researched investment strategies from the “miracle-promising, get-rich-now” noise.

We deploy quantitative strategies that we have thoroughly researched, traded and stress tested in different conditions. They all offer superior performance and mechanisms to protect you during market crashes. All strategies are based on sound mathematical rules and avoid any emotional decisions in the investment process.

Logical: keep things understandable, intuitive and reflecting how the market works. We avoid over-fitting models by relying upon well understood market mechanisms.

Quantitative Research: we use clear rules based strategies which do not depend on human emotions or discretion. Investors performance often suffers when they rely upon judgement and discretion. Our mechanical approach removes that judgement and discretion, allowing you to relax and focus on your life, your family, and building a secure future.

Research: we start with conducting and applying well-proven research in our strategies. We leverage the latest advanced academic and statistical models available. We apply it and use our own research to adapt it to real-world market trading and investment portfolio management.

Adaptive: we develop sophisticated techniques to allow our models to capture changes in investment environments and market regimes. Performance backtests of 20 or even 100 years might give insight to what has worked in the past. But do they reflect our current economic environment and will these mechanisms persist in tomorrow’s environment? We solve this challenge by building in well-researched market anomalies plus adaptive algorithms. These work well for our own investments, and they are now available for yours.

Cost effectiveness: we deliver better returns by using index-based low cost ETFs in our strategies. These consistently outperform the vast majority of mutual funds. We do not like being charged commissions or performance fees by banks and brokers, and neither should you. We do not charge any percentage fees, and only have a small monthly fee which will save time and money vs building this process yourself.

Frank Grossmann
Frank GrossmannPartner
Frank studied Microtechnics at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne and Business Administration at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. After the Studies in 1989 he founded Labocontrol AG.
Labocontrol developed high speed film scanners used in most of the photo labs for the production of Photo CD’s. In 2000 Labocontrol was sold to Digital Now and Frank worked as Chief Scientist and later CTO of this Company. In Mai 2002 Frank founded Colour-Science AG a company specialized in image processing algorithms like face detection or red eye removal.
Many of these algorithms could be also used to search for pattern in financial data, so Frank began to develop and back test rule based investment strategies. The main focus was to find strategies, which would allow a positive return also during a financial downturn or major financial crash.

Based on this Quantitative Research, Logical-Invest developed some very successful strategies and due to its solid performance and positive returns, we decided to share our knowledge with you and publish it on a monthly basis through “rent-a-strategy”.
