Here is a rare Polish hedge fund which combines multi-strategy and global macro approaches and outperforms its peers thanks to original tactics.

Macromoney, a fund manager focused on concentrated investments in securities, futures and options listed on the main stock exchanges, is a BVI-based firm founded in 2012 with fund administration in London, prime broker services in New York, and operational offices in Warsaw, Poland.

Macromoney’s founder is Maciej Wisniewski, an investment professional with 20 years of experience. He also founded in 2005 Investors Investment Fund Company ("Investors TFI"), one of Poland's first privately owned investment fund management companies, and grew assets in six years from $3.5m to $700m.
