Prior to investing in a given opportunity or making a recommendation of investment, the client may want an independent opinion on the validity and performance of the claims. In the area of complex modeling strategies, outright fraud is uncommon but lack of statistical rigor, overfitting the data, unintentional data leakage, and/or unsupported conclusions can lead to overoptimistic claims. In these situations where time and monetary pressures are high and investment dollars large, a second independent evaluation represents a best practices scenario. Medici Technologies can audit or independently reproduce conclusions drawn from existing data to complement the financial and intellectual property audits typically completed prior to investment.
