ABOUT CAPITAL FUND MANAGEMENT (CFM)
CFM IS A PIONEER IN DIVERSIFIED AND SINGLE STRATEGY ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENT STRATEGIES THAT PROVIDE A SOURCE OF RETURN TO THE FIRM’S INVESTORS WITH A LOW CORRELATION TO TRADITIONAL EQUITY AND BOND MARKETS.
Founded in 1991, CFM are one of the most established firms of its kind, with a track record built on a carefully managed expansion process, rigorous risk framework and distinct culture that blends a unique mixture of the scientific background of the firm’s researchers and IT engineers, supported by an experienced corporate team. The firm is owned by management and employees, with a minority stake held by Dyal Capital.
Research and technology are the key enablers of the investment process at CFM, which involves creating strategies derived from analysing huge quantities (petabytes per annum) of financial data allowing trading decisions to be executed in a highly systematic and disciplined way. They look for statistically significant patterns from which they create investment strategies that are rigorously tested before being implemented by algorithms that control the buying and selling of securities. CFM manages a large set of quantitative strategies which trade liquid instruments across global markets including futures, equities, bonds, options, and spot and forward FX. In view of these challenges, collaboration, humility and innovation are key components to CFM’s culture.
CFM’s investors include Pension Funds, Endowments, Sovereign Wealth Funds, Foundations, Fund of Funds, Private Banks, Insurance Companies and Family Offices and we have offices in Paris, London, New York and Tokyo.
In addition to carrying out research on new strategies, CFM have strong links to a number of universities and our researchers contribute to the advancement of knowledge in finance and economics by lecturing and regularly publishing academic articles.
