Large financial firms have dedicated research teams that construct portfolios. Individuals or even sub-teams dedicate to different factors, and smaller firms previously had a hard time competing. However, technology is shifting the balance, as tools like machine learning and artificial intelligence can augment current labor to boost productivity. These measures can enhance productivity without increasing one of the largest input costs in finance: labor. Magnifi’s powerful artificial intelligence can amp up your research department by providing detailed analytics, and powerful search features that navigate thousands of portfolio opportunities without the large teams. Technology is leveling the playing field and giving small firms the edge in labor output.
