London, United Kingdom, [May 4, 2022] – AllianceBernstein L.P. (“AB”), a leading research and global investment management firm, today announced it has added a new and distinctive AI-powered investing approach to its Multi-Asset Solutions team.

Dr. François Oustry and Sahar Attaripour, co-founders of Suzugia, have joined AllianceBernstein. Their multi-asset systematic macro alternative strategy uses the power of natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence, going beyond traditional data sources to uncover thematic investment opportunities. This distinctive capability furthers AB’s goal of delivering differentiated return streams to clients.

“The addition of these two talented individuals, with their unique investment approach, reflects AB’s culture of innovation and is another step forward in enhancing our alternative investment capabilities for clients,” said Daniel Loewy, Head of AB Multi-Asset Solutions. “This unique quantitative framework enables a systematic investing approach and advances our abilities to offer products leveraging AI and new data-science techniques. We look forward to collaborating with Dr. Oustray and Sahar Attaripour, with their extensive expertise, to offer this new approach to institutional and retail clients.” 

The two talented investors are passionate about intersecting AI-powered investments with natural language processing. Dr. Oustray has worked in academia and the financial services industry, authoring numerous papers on acceleration techniques in Deep Learning Algorithms and Information Theory, foundational areas for this strategy. Sahar Attaripour has spent more than a decade working on digital transformation, overseeing solutions, operational risk, and product development.

Both Dr. Oustry and Sahar Attaripour will join AB’s Multi-Asset Solutions team and will be based in AB’s London office.
