As of this week, I Know First has contracted a new partnership with Japanese Firm, IST which will now represent I Know First as a Fintech firm in Japan.

This new partner firm will represent I Know First in Japan so that they may get more exposure to the Japanese population and appease investors there. After all, I Know First serves the Japanese exchanges and provides daily AI Machine-Learning algorithms for Japanese stocks as well.
According to the IST website, IST Co., Ltd. develops, services and sells FinTech related software, algorithms and systems including ” I Know First” as of recently. 

As of December 28th 2017, I Know First finished the implementation and the training period of its AI-based ranking and forecasting model for the main equities listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. On this date, the first Japanese stock forecast was published for the subscribed investors in the local Japanese market, as the timing of the data feed and the forecast generation was adjusted to the respective time zone. Since then, the predictions generated returns greatly surpassing that of the Nikkei. I Know First’s AI-based forecasting system covers 1225 of the most liquid stocks listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, including 219 of the Nikkei 225 index constituents.

I Know First AI-based predictive system considers the markets holistically – it searches for patterns and relationships/interconnections in huge sets of historical daily updated, structured capital markets data and considers the financial world as a large complex system as a whole. From the patterns learned and matched to the current market conditions, the algorithm is deriving future projections for the securities. It condenses the learned patterns into two indicators representing each asset’s forecast, allowing the investor to use the ranked predictions to identify great investment opportunities and to support his/her investment process and beat the broad market. The predictability indicator, available for each security and time frame, helps to track how successful the algorithm is in learning the behavior of each individual asset and thus to focus on the most promising opportunities.

After primarily focusing on the U.S. stock market, the implementation of I Know First deep-learning model for the Japanese stock market and its outstanding results since the launch end of 2017 highlight the superiority of I Know First’s approach and exemplifies the adaptability and high scalability level of the system to markets across the globe.

AI Added Value to the Investors:

The predictive AI system can be used by investors/traders to make smarter investment decisions by:

  • identifying promising opportunities in the Japanese stock market
  • implementing custom screens as overlay to support their research and investment process.

The AI tool is an active investment management product, suitable for institutional as well as private self-directed DIY investors, helping outperform the market and manage portfolios with more confidence.

Additionally, I Know First was elected the top 3 European Fintech company in the field of PFM Robo Advisory in Brussels, Belgium in 2017. Top 3 Fintech companies in each category were decided on August 25 after the first round of the European Fintech Awards. The judging committee and the general public selected the top three companies in each category. The second prize was held in Brussels, Belgium on 27th September. This award and conference was held in cooperation with B. Hive, a European Fintech organization based in Brussels.

In addition, I Know First was chosen as NTT Data Open Innovation Forum. I Know First was announced at the NTT Data Open Innovation Forum in Tokyo on October 25, 2017. This forum was part of the Israeli Fintech Roadshow. I Know First was only one out of nine Israeli companies. Yaron Golgher, co-founder and CEO of I Know First , introduced a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence financial market forecasting system by I Know First . The algorithm forecasting system predicts more than 7,000 financial assets.

After many pitches of venture capital firms and Japanese finance companies attended, business meetings were held including not only Israeli Fintech companies but also attendees from other companies. The goal of the Innovation Forum was to bring together innovative, sustainable and winning business scenarios by bringing together the three different groups of start-ups with state-of-the-art technology and business solutions, large companies in various industries, and NTT DATA. This Innovation Forum is another example of I Know First ‘s aggressive approach to the Japanese market.
