We are a global quantitative and systematic asset management firm applying a scientific approach to finance to develop alternative investment strategies that create value for our clients.
As technology and data further proliferate in financial markets CFM aims to be at the vanguard of firms using these trends for the benefit of investors.
Who we are
Capital Fund Management (CFM) is a pioneer in diversified, alternative investment strategies that provide a source of return to our investors with a low correlation to traditional equity and bond markets.
Our 27 year track record of innovation in finance and economics underpins a systematic approach. Investors can access a highly risk-controlled and systematic investment framework, participating in the benefits of rigorous diversification and the opportunity to access returns from plausible, repeatable market patterns, or phenomena.
CFM is among but a handful of global investors to apply academic techniques to dynamically and stringently test every investment strategy.
Our firm’s culture derives from academic excellence, enhanced by an ongoing investment in people, our unique research capability and foundation technology.
