About Lisa Chen Trading
Since becoming a World Cup Advisor® (WCA®), Lisa has been fortunate to be sought out for guidance by various types of investors. However, she often felt frustrated because of her firm belief that that the ideal answer(s) for their problem(s) was not available. Lisa has always maintained that sole reliance on her system, or any other, wasn’t the best route. Instead, investors needed a tailored solution that combined the most robust automated trading systems, aligned with their investment goals, risk appetite, and account size, and utilizes uncorrelated strategies for optimal results.
A lightbulb moment occurred last fall when she realized that all the necessary technology was at their fingertips. So, immediately they turned to adapting their quant models, which were initially created by their in-house expert for Collective2’s SmartPortfolio Ranking System, then customized for Lisa’s 30+ algos she was actively trading at the time, to identify the most reliable systems from the sea of options from global platforms. These models also now enable them to assess trading systems from a broad selection of sources. The outcome is a game-changer in the finance industry called Quant Portfolio Intelligence (QPI). QPI blends the most dependable systems with integrated risk management, regular portfolio rebalancing, and diversification.
LCT has strong relationships with these leaders in futures, stocks, forex, and options trading, including World Cup Advisor®, iSystems, LCT Auto Trade, and Collective2. Notably, access to two of these platforms is usually limited to brokerage firms. LCT is able to perform quantitative analysis on 5241 systems, with 3023 of them being offered under their brand.
In close collaboration with the owners and heads of these platforms, LCT gained access to comprehensive data in the required format, for which they are truly grateful. This access was instrumental in developing their QPI proprietary quant models.
These models provide LCT with a significant edge by regularly rebalancing portfolios and strategically activating or deactivating systems based on performance metrics such as drawdown, trade duration, max loss, etc., and the emergence of more lucrative alternatives. The inclusion of non-correlated systems bolsters portfolio diversification. Furthermore, there is potential to integrate additional platforms, and have plans to introduce forex in the near future.
With these exciting developments, LCT has an unmatched competitive advantage in the financial industry, as the only firm equipped with quant models and an evaluation system capable of assessing trading systems from the world’s leading platforms, resulting in curated, sustainable portfolios.

Who Is Lisa Chen?
Prime example of high performance and precision.
Lisa’s journey is one of diverse passions and entrepreneurial spirit.
From excelling in classical dance and piano to her obsession with sports cars, she found her calling in finance. At 21, with licenses obtained through the Canadian Securities Institute, she executed trades for stocks, options, bonds, mutual funds, and fixed income securities on behalf of clients at a Canadian National brokerage firm for the next four years.
During this time, she discovered her love for auto racing and quickly achieved impressive results, achieving multiple top-three finishes out of 80 competitors in her rookie year and eventually going on to achieve dozens of podium finishes across North America in autocross before transitioning into road course racing.
After a burnout in the finance industry, Lisa then ventured into the business world, turning a two-person operation into Canada’s largest supplier in the sign and graphics industry. With offices in Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary, their achievements were recognized with a nomination for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® award, where she and her partner were honoured as runners-up.
Following the acquisition of her company, Lisa ended her brief early retirement due to boredom. Instead, she returned to trading to fulfill her dream of becoming a top trader, and after many years of dedication, her programmed methodologies led her to achieve a remarkable top-five position in the World Cup Trading Championships®, securing a prestigious designation as one of 13 World Cup Advisors globally.
Now with her team at LCT of dedicated Quantitative Portfolio Strategists, she is now focused on in-house trading the most reliable strategies identified by their Quant Portfolio Intelligence evaluation system.
