Autoscalp Start up Overview :

 

Overview

 

Further documentation can be made available after signing
our Non Disclosure Agreement and our Non Compete Agreement.

Such documentation will be consisting of:
Our presentation slides and Executive summary
Our technology tree , since 2003 .
Our competitors and detailed explanation of their bankruptices.

Autoscalp prototypes and model previews are restricted to institutional business partners.
We require our versions of a Non Disclosure Agreement and Non Compete Agreement
to be signed on both sides before initiating any talks.

After signing both the agreements a live proof of concept can be arranged , either to track our model live
or to remotely view a Managed Futures Fund using Autoscalp Algos and Strategies for creating alpha.

Institutional only [Investment Banks, Venture capitals , Funds, Asset Managers]
can email their partnership requests (see bottom of page).


 

Partnership Types:

[ License to use Autoscalp or its models ]


1) New Division - Royalty franchising based spin-off

2) Mudaraba

3) Joint Venture - Start up

4) Business-to-business black box (Data as a service)



 

Partnerships we look for:

 

Autoscalp is just considering the following four types of partnerships, no exceptions:

Mandatory premises:

NDA and NCA must be signed before anything else.

Intellectual property of Autoscalp tools will not be shared among the parts.

Autoscalp royalties or license are paid on target reached, not on time passing, not at end of the month.

1) New Division or royalty franchising based spin-off or SPV or Ad-Hoc Company:


Also known as Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)

Creating a new division inside Your Company or starting a spin-off from it
allocating part of Your Company shares as stock options .

Royalty franchising contract at net of outsourcing contracts and budgets for R&D costs :

either with royalties as fixed percentage of profits
(example: 35% of profits is to be returned as royalties to autoscalp)

or with royalties depending on a pre-defined target
(if +2% target is set, Autoscalp doesn't get the royalties until target is reached)

 

 

2) Mudaraba:

Further details of Mudaraba and some terms and conditions for Mudaraba contracts
Mudaraba

 

To see how Mudaraba works see this link:

Mudaraba Contract Explained

 

3) Joint Venture - Start up

 

(see this link for an example of Joint Venture contract)

Process of partnership for creation of a joint venture consists in three phases.
As requested we publish the steps required for doing a joint venture start-up:

a) NDA: non disclosure agreement, NCA: non compete agreement,
where we both sign that any detail cannot be disclosed and that there is a real common ground.

b) Due diligence: to make sure we both are committed toward the same objectives

c) Reciprocal Commitment - Escrow:

  • Autoscalp gives the license to use Autoscalp models to an escrow agent of common choice
  • counterpart company gives the counter value of the license to the escrow agent (usually a lawyer)

d) Commencing the Startup with shares distributed as earlier shown in point 1).

 

4) Business-to-business (B2B) : black box

R&D budget, setup and expenses for the first three months have to be paid in advance.

Royalties configuration:

royalties can be paid as fixed percentage of profits
(example: 33% of profits is to be returned as royalties to autoscalp)

or

royalties are paid depending on a pre-defined target
(if +2% target is set, Autoscalp doesn't get the royalties until target is reached)

 

Contract types:

Royalty franchising contract with multiple counterparts (specific for multi branch funds)

or

Data as a service , royalty based, for a single company counterpart.

 

Understanding Royalty franchising and licensing costs :

Dataset:
license cost is a fixed amount. 33% of profits on a 25M$ fund and
license is paid when target is reached (+2%).


Examples:
1) A single asset manager is simply not viable as partner:
since licensing cost would be prohibitive to him.

2) For a Family office managing 2 funds allocating 25M$ each
license cost is 16.6% of profits.

3) For an Asset management Company redistributing algos
on 4 funds (or fund compartments) with 25M$ allocated each:
license is cost is 8.32% of profits.

4) For a Fund of funds running the license on 10 funds
(subfunds or compartments) allocating 25M$ each:
license cost is 3.3% of profits.

5)An Investment Bank running model on its unleveraged treasury with 250M$ allocated.
license cost is 3.3% of profits.


A few examples of partner classes:

Venture Capital / business angels / private equity : can use our models as alternative differentiation method (order flow scale economy) in order to generate more alpha.

Fund Incubators: can create many start-ups around our tech tree and expertise improving learning curve and obtaining a scale economy.

Fund distributors: can organize a co-joined offer to provide our models to multiple funds or multiple units in order to generate more alpha.

Dark pools can use our models to defend themselves against disruptive market maker platform behaviors.

HNWI, asset managers, family offices and Funds can use our expertise and know how including , models, feeds, signals either to generate alpha or as an alternative differentiation method or even to create a fully operational R&D division.

Producers and exporters of stream flow delivered goods (oil and gas) can use our specific models to hedge against base currency oscillations of physical delivery goods occurring during production, shipment, delivery phases.

A conglomerate or banks operating in a gas producing country timely receiving geopolitical signals anticipating gas price spikes and subsequent currency fluctuations.

National and Quasi-National Electric Power Grids, power producers and exporters. Power consumption peaks are sudden by definition and thus might create unexpected exposure to foreign currencies to the power exporter.

Also consider a combination in vertical clusters of the above examples can ramp the learning curve and create scale economy , reduce know-how cost and speed up alpha production or in certain cases just maintenance of the status quo can be of primary importance.

Banks:
Commercial Banks, Investment Bank, Merchant Bank. No saving and loan banks are fit for our Algos.

Funds:
[perspective partner must prove dimension is consistent with at least 2 billions USD adding balance in the letter of intent].
Closed-end funds
Unit investment trusts
Private funds [ hedge funds, private equity funds and managed futures funds , commodity pools]
Dedicated units , fund compartments or subclasses are more likely to fit our algos .

If using a commonly accepted Fund Classification Model (strategy, capital , structure) our Algos are applicable to :
By Strategy: Actively Managed, Alpha Focused, Alternative Investment, Commodity Trading (SCF) , Event driven, Fx / liquidity Fund.
By capital type: Business Angels, Mezzanine Venture, Mudarabah, Murabaha, Private Equity, SCF, Seed Capital, Venture Capital.
By structure: UHNWI Family Office, Fund of Funds, Managed Futures, Multi Class / Multi Compartment / Multi Strategy .

If using HFR HedgeFundResearch classification system our Algos are applicable to :
Macro: Active Trading, Commodity: Multi, Currency: Systematic, Discretionary Thematic, Systematic Diversified, Multi-Strategy.
Event Driven: Special Situations, Multi-strategy.
Equity hedge: Quantitative Directional, Market Neutral.


Asset Management Companies:
Enclose proof Your Company AUM is greater of 2 Billions USD in the letter of intent.

Fund services companies:
Specify on behalf of which company you are arranging the proposal for and prove perspective partner's AUM is greater than 2 Bil USD.


Others in Fund industry:
Enclose proof Your Company AUM is greater of 2 Billions USD in the letter of intent if you are:
a Fund Administrator, a Fund Custodian,a Mezzanine Venture, a Startup Incubators or a Venture Capital.

Notes:
Not all Fund types fit our algos. Creating a SVF or a dedicated unit or compartment could be a solution.
Not all executives in a company can sign agreements and letter of intents on behalf of the company they work for
so be sure you have the legal powers to sign them both before contacting us.

For Brand and Intellectual Property Protection reasons we don't allow white labeling or re-branding our know how.
Data As a Service is subject to the Country list limitations.

Autoscalp owner uses his algos himself as his personal speculative tools which took many years of devoted commitment and efforts, those tools are also under continuous improvement. So, at Autoscalp We are aware that underneath an apparent business proposal can lie a hostile "procurement outsourcing" or silmilar schemes and Autoscalp has a seasoned experience in actively prosecuting direct and indirect intellectual property theft attempts.

We received many proposals which turned out to be poorly disguised attempts to steal intellectual property, social engineering baits or scam attempts, our policy is now to report them the government authority where the scam attempt perpetrator resides for proper prosecution.

 

 

 



Country list guideline :

Autoscalp is receiving many evaluation proposals coming from various countries
but Autoscalp is interested in cooperating with prospective partners in certain geographic areas only

Autoscalp is very interested in:

Japan, GCC, Middle-East countries , oil or gas producing and exporting countries.
for relying on a NON compound interest based banking model
as their economies are market driven not debt driven.


Autoscalp is interested in:

B.R.I.C.S. , "Next Eleven Countries" , "Four Asian Tigers", Africa
for the likely increment of their Parity of Purchase Power in the next years.





What Autoscalp is NOT interested in :

As We had to defend Autoscalp Intellectual Properties  since 2003 We have become proficient in
spotting, signalling and exposing schemes to authorities and watchdogs.
, then  our policy is to reject any partnership request:

- coming from companies operating in certain countries [see country list below]
- coming from companies using certain business models [see profiled modus operandi below]:

Austria, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Swizerland... :

Excluded for discriminatory behaviors against foreign owners of intellectual properties.
In those countries the criminal intent against the intellectual property owner is always a clear and present danger:
Modus operandi I scam:
blackmailing the foreign I.P. owner to block local facilitations if does not disclose his I.P.

Modus operandi II scam:
scam/blackmail/defamate the foreigner I.P. owner to gather competitive advantage for the bank.

Modus operandi III scam:
hire the foreigner I.P. owner then blackmail to fire him if does not disclose the I.P.

After the 2007 NY crash hit these countries also, most of them now allow
Algo owners and Developers to signal and report fraudolent banks and banksters to watchdogs.
Still, the default policy of these countries is to allow banks play a "never tell the muppet" scheme
making their banks still unfit for working with us, no matter their size.

European Union :
Excluded for lack of specific laws concerning intellectual property protection for algorithms.
[as is today: if a bank steals your algo you have to prove that such bank traded with your algo... without having any access to their books!]

Modus operandi IV scam:
banks forcefully ask the Algo owner a full disclosure all his speculative algos before operating to avoid him getting prosecuted for market disruption...lack of compliance... due diligence issues... any excuse goes,  in order to get his intellectual property out of his hands before even starts operating. Then forbidding him from accessing the customers trade records makes sure he won't get paid at all.
[aka "zero external advantage policy" typical of german banks].

Five eyes countries: United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, + Israel.
Excluded for lack of respect of foreign intellectual property at all levels of negotiation.

Modus operandi V scam:
through systematic illegal penetration in your servers they steal your Algo I.P.
while you are still developing it and then even try blame you for stealing theirs.
I.P. owner can't even blame their governments or banks directly because
they wisely use external contractors for the job
[usually dummy companies with zero capital to avoid damage requests].

PIIGS: Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Spain, Cyprus:
Excluded for total unreliability of their banks. From top (board) to bottom (promoters).
[Their banks are mostly empty or bankrupted but if their citizens are untold to mantain order... bankers know].

Modus operandi VI scam:
Since just the banker knows customers have no more money on accounts (ponzi or soft dollar schemes)
either the algo owner is available to "cook the books" or won't be allowed to work with the bank...
is then highly likely that the Algo Owner won't get paid anyway in any case.

Modus operandi VII scam:
If rather than on profitability the algo owner is asked to optimize (maximize): volumes rebates and commissions,
means that the bank is close to the boling point and probably the Algo Owner won't get paid anyway.

Autoscalp is also NOT interested in:

- selling Autoscalp units separately or Autoscalp models separately

- participating in white-labels or mother/child nested companies schemes

- participating in pseudo start up proposals hiding a reversed mortgage scheme or a procurement outsourcing scheme

- participating in any cover-up structure resembling the following schemes:
      pyramidal, Ponzi, boiler room, pump and dump, bucket shop, soft dollar, ICO.

- Brokers, retail investors, bank employees, I.B. and promoters of all sorts must abstain from proposing us anything.

Typically who tries to circumvent the above requirements resolves in derogatory or defamatory statements.
In that case We'll automatically report all those statements in the form of a very detailed report:
- to the financial watchdog of his country of residence,
- to the financial watchdog of the country he works in,
- to his employer's watchdog and his employer's Board for future reference.

As an attempted scam against us is perceived by us as such, We always signal the perpetrator to the proper authorities:
- anti money laundring,
- anti-corruption
- anti-fraud agencies.
In certain areas that could alert religious or political police.
in certain areas watchdog are allowed to bait the perpetrator to expose his wrongdoings malversions and malpractices.
In certain areas, Autoscalp could even be entitled to receive a percentage on the sequester .
[Depending on local whistleblowing laws].

All suspected scam attempts will be sent to the following sites : www.rsa.com www.antifraudintl.org www.419baiter.com www.419scam.org and other [undisclosed] sites for further cross-checking.


 

Summary of Partnership Proposals we received: 2007-2012 (chart)

In 2012 Autoscalp switched to a distributed network partnership model
For data concerning partnership requests after 2012, see Networks Page.

Data about potential partners are undisclosed and not available for consultation as by mutually signed NDA and NCA with respective counterparts.
Starting from September 2013 all partnership requests are routed, screened and handled in outsourcing.

Proposals rejected till 2012 : more than 300:

The most likely reasons why we rejected counterparts, ordered by statistical relevance, most relevant on top:

counterpart was not institutional ( we didn't even read it )
counterpart failed to read partnership and disclaimer
counterpart failed to disclose its data
counterpart resides in a country we are not interested in
counterpart masked a hidden hostile intent
counterpart tried to re-negotiate after the handshake

About NDA-NCA Agreements, overview :

We require signing a mutual Non Disclosure Agreement and a Non Compete Agreement
before any discussion concerning Autoscalp models can even occur. After those agreements
you will allow our lawyers take information on you and Your Company,
further steps will be depending on the partnership type chosen by Your Company.

Specification about eventual guarantees: will be in the form of lawyer deposited escrows.
By previous experiences: P.O.F. (proof of funds or B.I. searches etc. are not enough and just brings more cross checks
during the reciprocal due diligence process.

Autoscalp applies pro-active defense on its intellectual property:

Through signing the NDA NCA contracts Your Company will be expressly FORBIDDEN
from attempting any hostile takeover or act as proxy for a third party attempt to do that,
as Your Company won't even be allowed talking about the ongoing negotiations with Autoscalp to whichever third party,
and in such event will be liable for specific penals.

Signing the NDANCA contracts Your Company will be forbidden to provide objects not in line or against the master contract.
In detail, Your Company will be then forbidden from proposing us: mezzanine financing, reversed morgage, tender offer, attempted takeover, MBO, LBO, LIMBO, MIMBO, spinoffs, merging and demerging, procurement outsourcing, ICO, ICO tokenization... or any hostile takeover attempt otherwise disguised in the partnership proposal cluster contract. Being the behavior to use the main contract as a mean to insert hostile proposals, specific penals and damages clauses have been written.

In short: the malpractice to try alienate our intellectual property through a seemingly friendly contracts has happened so often
that proper countermeasures had to be taken.

Some frequently asked questions about copyrights from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

We then decided to engage in pro-active defense of our intellectual property:

though the help of the best lawyers specialized in International copyright laws,
though the help of the best law firms specialized in intellectual property protection,
through a very peculiar and proactive behavior during the start-up phases,
through a wise stock options and profit fees combination at back end.

Example:
to disincentivate oppurtunistic behaviors, each time a negotiation with a counterpart
is suspended, next negotiation with same partners starts with a 2% increase on license pricing:
that makes sure wasting time to try taking time and competitive advantage is not an option.

About the Non Disclosure Agreement :

Your Company will not be allowed to disclose our partnership agreement to any third party. This is convenient on both sides, on your side because your competitors won't know you're using our models and on our side because we don't want our know how to become public or redistributed . Protecting our intellectual property is a core issue to us.

About the Non Compete Agreement :

We make a pro-active use of the Non Compete agreement specifically created to avoid some of the aforementioned issues and to protect our brand and image. Then by signing our Non Compete Agreement Your Company certifies that:

Your Company is not trying to act as proxy for a third party trying to appropriate of our proprietary tools
Your Company is not trying to sell mortgages or reversed mortgages to us
Your Company is not involved in procurement outsourcing schemes against us
Your Company is not playing "introductory broker" practices against us
Your Company is not involved in "captive hosting" practices against us
Your Company did not lose more than 20% of its principal.
Your Company is not going to keep more than 50% of the profits
Your Company is registered as an institutional investor in its country

Your Company does not invest in business considered unethical by Sharia Law

 

Main issues during SUB-NDA negotiations and contract development:


1) As by NDA specs:
Your Company will create an Ah-hoc Company to which Autoscalp will provide signals to.
Your Company will be the ONLY customer of the The Ad-hoc company.
Your Company won't be allowed to disclose who the Ad-hoc company algo provider is.

2) As by NDA specs:
Your Company will NOT list Autoscalp in the company provider's list. The Ad-Hoc company will be listed instead.
Your Company or its subsidiaries won't be allowed to negotiate / renegotiate with Autoscalp directly
as Autoscalp will be the algo provider of the Ad-hoc company, not of Your Company.

3) As by NDA specs:
Approval of all Autoscalp requests is a prerequisite for the Ad-hoc company to start receiving the algo feed,
independently from the contractual form chosen [licensing, SAAS, Royalty Franchising etc.].

4) As by NDA specs:
While The Ad-hoc company will be forbidden from disclosure to any third party about doing business with Autoscalp,

Your Company will be required to officially DENY any involvement with Autoscalp

thus accepting Plausible Deniability Penals which are triggered in case of wilful or accidental disclosure.

5) As by NCA specs:

To prevent a possible infiltration of potential fintech competitors masking as man in the middle or disguising themselves as partners: our models don't use leverage by default and assume Autoscalp to be already connected to primary price feeds and need no "introductions" or "facilitation" to get access to primary sources in whichever market.

6) As by NCA specs:

To avoid extraction of potential I.P. harming information and to protect our brand , image and our copyrights :
Autoscalp does not allow re-branding or white labeling of its tools. Any disclosure of the usage of such tools will also be expressly forbidden by the reciprocal NDA Your Company is required to sign before any negotiation can take place.
