Double-Digit Numerics (DDNUM) is an independent company located in Auckland, New Zealand, carrying out high-level quantitative analysis, research and consulting in developing and applying statistical methods, models, and algorithms to enhance business returns. Our methodology includes Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning (Statistical Learning), and Data Science (including "Big Data"). We work with all types of business but our recent work has been with hedge funds developing models to produce excess returns in stock markets. We are particularly good at statistical analysis of stock market data.
We relish competitive mathematics.
Perhaps the best mathematics competition in the world is America's Cup yacht racing. The team with the best maths wins. Mathematics and statistics is used to design boats and sails, to predict the wind, to sail optimum routes through wind fields, and to sail optimum strategy against an opponent.
But even land-based business provides mathematical challenges for maximising returns. Beating your competitors, beating the stock market, maximising profits given fixed resources, scheduling to minimise traffic time, loading an aircraft as quickly as possible, figuring out an optimal marketing campaign for example.
Double-Digit Numerics specialises in modeling and optimisation, primarily in finance but with expertise whereever optimisation can be used. Although most of our work has been with funds the same mathematical concepts (modeling and optimisation) are common to other business processes.
