The firm was set-up by former Bank of America Global Head of Foreign Exchange Paul Chappell. Since inception C-View’s core focus has been to provide consistent risk-adjusted returns through fundamental/macro-based discretionary currency management services to public and private pension funds, endowments and other financial institutions globally, via managed accounts and fund investments.

C~View’s investment programmes deliver a base case alpha engine which has produced consistent returns for our investors and with low volatility.” said Knowles.
