qplum has been founded by Mansi Singhal and Gaurav Chakravorty.
qplum is registered as a RIA and a CTA.
We use quantitative strategies and machine learning techniques ranging from linear regression to deep learning to profit from global macro trends and market inefficiencies. We generate execution alpha using HFT.
Mansi has over 10 years of experience in portfolio management track record. Before starting qplum, she worked with Brevan Howard where she managed portfolios of more than $100 million. Previously, she was a trader at the swaps desk at Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and Wachovia Bank. She completed her Masters in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania and holds both the Series 3 and Series 65 certifications.
Gaurav is one of the early pioneers in high-frequency trading. He built the most profitable algo trading group at Tower Research from 2005-2010, and he was the youngest partner in the firm. As an algorithmic trader, the strategies Gaurav built made over $1 billion dollars. He founded DV Capital, which currently trades over 20 markets across the world using algorithmic systems. He completed his Masters in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania, and received his undergraduate degree in Computer Science from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. He holds Series 3 and Series 65 certifications. Gaurav's fondest dream is that ten years from now, most people will be successful in managing their own investments.
