Opalesque Exclusive: IAM Group hires research analyst, IMFC systematic fund down -4.28% in October, -6.29 % YTD The IMFC programs did not escape the month end volatility unscathed. That said, the managers were generally satisfied with the extent to which their risk management overlays limited the adverse impact. The core global program lost 4.28 % on the month, bringing the year to date return to - 6.29 %. The managers expect that this result will stand up well amongst their peer group. The newer IMFC Global Concentrated program had its first losing month, down 4.61 %. On the year it is up 12.38 %.

During the month, the IMFC team was bolstered by the addition of research analyst Bryan Chuah. Bryan is in the final stage of his Masters in Quantitative Finance in the Centre for Advanced Studies in Finance at the University of Waterloo. The investment management team now comprises 3 traders and 2 mathematicians.
