Overview:QCM is an award winning systematic global macro hedge fund manager with head-quarters in the UK. For two decades, we have partnered with institutions, family offices and high net worths worldwide to manage and enhance their wealth. Using sophisticated systems-based models, we invest their funds through proprietary strategies that take futures positions in major global exchanges across financial and commodity markets. Our aim is to generate absolute returns that are non-correlated to traditional asset classes.
QCM is differentiated from its peers as a result of:
• Fundamental macro thought, systematically delivered: QCM provides investors with the quantitative rigor of a systematic firm, with the fast-adaptive focus of a discretionary approach.
• Robustness and simplicity: QCM prides itself on the parsimony and simplicity of its models, having continuously refined its approach and design whilst avoiding adding more variables and/or components to avoid ‘fitting’ and losing robustness through additional complexity with frequent re-calibration of inputs.
• Indicator elimination: This approach of refining, instead of adding new variables, reduces the requirement to know the unknown and to understand human biases.
• One Model offering different investment attributes: Through one model, the QCM strategy emulates the investment attributes of value, momentum, volatility, and correlation trading. It can swiftly and seamlessly move from one style to another or form a blended mix as market environments change.
QCM was founded in late 1995 by Aref Karim, who maintained a thirteen-year history of managing a substantial portfolio of alternative investments for the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund, ADIA. The firm is registered with the FCA in the UK and the CFTC in the US. It is also a member of the NFA.
