CAZ Investments, a Houston-based investment manager, and Palantir Technologies, a builder of operating systems for the modern enterprise, announced a five years partnership for Palantir to provide its Artificial Intelligence Platform (AIP) in support of CAZ’s growth and innovation.
Palantir will provide CAZ with AI-powered solutions to accelerate partner onboarding and augment investment managers’ work with generative AI. The use of Palantir’s software aims to help CAZ automatically scale operations and meet growing demand.
AIP will offer CAZ executives a next-best action system to identify and recommend opportunities or content to improve retention and service to its partners, among other use cases, allowing it to provide differentiated investment services to its partners as it embarks on a crucial expansion period.
“The last few years have marked unprecedented growth for CAZ and a dramatic increase in demand for access to our curated opportunities,” said Christopher Zook, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of CAZ Investments. “We are excited to partner with the talented team at Palantir to ensure that we are able to scale our business for exponential growth, harnessing the power of AI to transform our processes.”
“CAZ is embarking on a remarkably ambitious AI transformation that will put exceptional demands on AIP. These are the partners we are looking for,” said Daniel Wheller, Head of Financial Services at Palantir. “We are proud to deploy Palantir AIP at CAZ, bolstering AI transformation.”
Palantir’s technology is currently deployed to solve some of the world’s most complex challenges in the government, defense, and financial sectors, including banking, asset management, anti-money laundering, and cryptocurrency.
CAZ Investments’ proprietary research process and global network identifies thematic investment opportunities across public and private markets. The CAZ team reviews 1,500 private investments in a typical year, but usually invests in approximately 10-12. Among CAZ Investments’ guiding principles is that it will align its interests with its partners, meaning the firm is the first investor in every opportunity it presents to its network.
This means that individual investors and investment advisors alike can participate knowing that CAZ is directly aligned with their success, or that of their client’s.
