Systematic Alpha joins AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace

Tuesday, December 06, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - The Systematic Alpha Futures program, managed by the New York-based CTA Systematic Alpha Management (SAM), has been listed on the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace, the fastest growing hedge fund marketplace in the U.S. AlphaMetrix offers investors the option of allocating to hedge funds via separately managed accounts (SMAs), pooled managed accounts (PMAs) and a new product, Transparent Funds. The latter funds, introduced in May 2011, enable managers to retain their existing hedge fund structure, while AlphaMetrix provides intraday portfolio prices, risk analytics and reports to investors.

AlphaMetrix provides users with sophisticated analytics, portfolio construction tools, due diligence and risk reporting, risk monitoring and background checks on managers. The platform was initially focused on CTAs, the most liquid segment of the hedge fund market, and began offering non-CTA hedge fund strategies in 2010.

The marketplace currently has over $6bn invested in hedge funds. The Systematic Alpha Futures Fund, Ltd. will join other transparent funds on the platform and will be accessible to qualified investors.

“We are excited that our flagship fund is now available on the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace,” said Peter Kambolin, CEO of Systematic Alpha. “We are certain that the Marketplace’s users will welcome access to SAM’s contrarian, systematic approach. We look forward to working with AlphaMetrix’s investors in creating their own, bespoke portfolios. ”

Mikus Kins, Executive Director, Head of Business Development for AlphaMetrix, commented: “We are pleased to welcome Systematic Alpha to AlphaMetrix and are confident that their strategy will be valued by our customers. We look forward to a significant and long term partnership.”

Systematic Alpha Management is a short-term systematic CTA which uses advanced methods of statistical analysis of high frequency market data to develop its models. Source
