Our founder was at home in the laboratory. His first job was as a research engineer at Eastman Kodak in the Professional Photography Division located in Rochester, NY. Six months into that R&D job, he was asked if he wouldn't mind going over to the manufacturing side to get "a little real world experience" as it was explained to him that too many of his older R&D colleagues had "no practical understanding of how the real world operated."
Our founder began running what is now referred to as big data analytics 33 years ago. The most beneficial aspects of this type of analysis are; speed, efficiency and above all, truth. The company's name, The Verity Fund, originates from the definition of the word verity: the state or quality of being true, accordance with fact or reality.
"The price of a stock and the value of its businesses are almost never identical."
Mathematical modeling refers to the ability to identify opportunities through pre-programmed mathematically-weighted equations. If a typical investor follows eight (8) equities during any given time period, the chances that he or she has a clear understanding of the dynamics of said equities has a fairly high probability of being an accurate statement. Now imagine, if they wanted to drop a much bigger net across a sea of thousands of possible equity investment opportunities. A net large enough to capture possible companies that were still fairly unknown to the average investor. One can easily grasp the difficulty in trying to gain an understanding across say 3,000 equities, continuously. This is where mathematical modeling affords the investor armed with these analytical tools a signifcant advantage over those retail investors operating without. Not only does it help uncover generally unknown companies to the typical retail investor, it also plays a major role in identifying when to enter and exit even the most well-known of companies.
