Sunofia Capital Management launches market neutral strategy

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Bailey McCann, Opalesque New York:

Sunofia Capital Management, LLC, a global asset management firm specializing in systematic strategies, is launching a market neutral strategy to take advantage of short term micro-opportunities on an intraday to three day basis.

The strategy will initially invest in European and Japanese liquid equities and will subsequently add liquid North American and global stocks. The strategy will be managed by Dr. Moustapha Awada who has over 17 years of trading, portfolio and risk management experience. The new strategy will take a quantitative, systematic approach to global long/short equities trading.

Sunofia will be working with Pulse Capital Partners to grow interest in the strategy. Pulse provides acceleration/seed capital to managers and portfolios, both anchored on transparency through managed account structures. Over the past 15 years, Pulse’s experienced global investment team has invested more than $25 billion in hedge funds on behalf of clients, much of which has been in the form of customized mandates and has involved identifying next generation managers.

The core strategy at Sunofia is built on a statistical arbitrage framework, trading high frequency signals via mean reversion and momentum-driven strategies. The investment process aims to provide investors with high risk-adjusted returns with low volatility product offering, driven by sophisticated models that regularly adapt to changing market conditions.
