The History of our Name

Pierre-Simon, Marquis de Laplace was a French scholar, mathematician, astronomer, physicist whose work was pivotal for the advancement of modern probabilities and statistics, which continues to be highly relevant in numerous fields today, including data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence. By naming ourselves after Laplace, we strive to honor his contributions to modern mathematics in a way that is practical and relevant to individual investors and their advisors.

Our Mission

At Laplace Insights, we leverage innovative technologies in machine learning and artificial intelligence to develop our investment strategies, insights, and communication tools. We’ve built our platform to be resilient and robust, while providing relatively stable returns over the long run. We perform extensive statistical validation of our system to ensure a consistent level of performance over a wide range of different market conditions. 

Although we will never claim to predict the future using our platform, we do perform extensive statistical analysis of the past and thus provide data-intelligent, objective guidance that is useful for the future. All this with the goal of reducing investment uncertainties and gaining a clearer understanding of what’s happening in the markets, above and beyond the frenzy of daily news.

Our Foundation

Laplace Insights was founded by Jean-Marc Patenaude out of his lifelong passion for finding a better and safer way to invest. A machine learning, data scientist and electrical engineer, Jean-Marc has a clear vision to deliver data-intelligent investment recommendations to investment advisors that take the emotion out of investing decisions while protecting client portfolios during unpredictable markets.

Laplace Insights partners with registered investment advisors, institutions and family offices to effectively introduce investors to these strategies while providing the transparency and insights that modern investors demand. In turn, advisors can implement the strategies in their clients’ portfolios while also sharing these insights with their clients. These data-intelligent yet simple insights help foster a deeper level of exchange between advisor and client and, over time, further help develop trust and a deeper relationship with each client.
