In other words, Qraft's core AI technology explores the vast search space and find probable factor candidates to produce excess returns quickly and efficiently.

AMOM uses AI to achieve its goal of providing investors with purer exposure to the momentum factor. In recent months, AMOM has been delivering results that have outperformed the S&P 500.

So far, however, AMOM couldn't correctly time other major stocks in its portfolio.
