Evaluate the complexity of portfolio companies based on Quantitative Complexity Theory (QCT). Using at least 12 quarters of company data, Optimum calculates the current complexity and a complexity interval. The upper bound (critical complexity) is the level of complexity above which the company becomes unmanageable, as too much entropy can arise from the Balance Sheet. The lower bound (minimum complexity) is the minimum level of complexity created by the company. Balance sheet items are also ranked according to their contribution to the overall company complexity. Items at the top are the main drivers of complexity and should be addressed by the executive management to reduce the complexity (and increase the manageability) of the company.

- Created in 2016, Optimum is the first company to measure complexity based on a proven model-free approach and to launch complexity-based investment strategies. Optimum uses proprietary technology and Quantitative Complexity Theory (QCT), a model-free measure of correlation created by company Co-founder & CTO Dr. Jacek Marcyk, to trade investment portfolios. Optimum also offers risk management advisory services to financial companies.
