Genesis CEO Michael Moro addressed the purchase by stating that the move will allow the company to raise its technological capabilities.

Nonetheless, both he and the company did not reveal what the terms of the deal were.
Qu Capital, according to their website, is focused on using “state-of-the-art statistical techniques” to detect inefficiencies across asset classes. However, the site does not provide any details regarding the acquisition other than the statement “Qu was acquired in 2019.”
On the other hand, Genesis CTO revealed that the company hopes to integrate Qu’s machine learning into their existing systems. Furthermore, he explained that the company would be using Qu’s advanced technology in its new product offerings.
