Investment Themes

  • Systematic

    Exploitation of repeatable market behaviour can lead to consistent return generation in a disciplined framework.

  • Risk Management

    Understanding and measuring risk is crucial. We use a statistical approach to risk measurement which helps set position sizes and minimize drawdown expectations.

  • Fixed Income & Currency

    Our methods are readily exploited in interest rate and currency markets which exhibit repeatable measurable behaviour using highly liquid and readily priced securities.
