QLO Capital joins the Trium Multi-Manager Alliance

Monday, October 14, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update, for New Managers - Trium Capital welcomed QLO Capital onto their multi-manager platform. The platform, Trium Multi-manager Alliance ("TMA"), launched late last year, is an innovative alliance of quantitative and systematic style early stage hedge fund managers. Managers that join TMA will be entering into an alliance with a range of like-minded outstanding hedge fund managers, sharing offices and central control function resources with each other, thus benefiting from significant economies of scale. TMA is structured so that early-stage managers meet the operational due diligence requirements required by institutional investors on day one.

QLO Capital is a global macro investment strategy that uses a systematic multi-strategy approach to investments, trading liquid futures across commodities, equities, fixed income and currencies. At its core are 13 quantitative strategies across both momentum and mean reversion. However a discretionary overlay is a core part of the value proposition.

QLO Capital has a positive live track record over the past 8 years, recently managing USD 450m for ATP in Denmark. The strategy was initiated by Lars Wind whilst working for ADIA, and Lars was joined by Betina Wolf-Andersen in 2008.

Gareth James, CEO of Trium Capital, said "We are delighted to welcome QLO Capital to our the TMA platform. Lars and Betina have a proven track record, and the discretionary overlay adds real appeal to investors."

Lars Wind, Chief Investment Officer of QLO Capital, said "This is a significant and strategic move for QLO. We had considered a number of options but found the value proposition offered by Gareth and his team compelling and by far the best solution.

Trium gives us the robust infrastructure and operational expertise that allows QLO Capital to focus on investment growth and performance. This structure brings together leading specialists that can fully exploit the growth prospects of the alliance."

In response to the need for a solution for early stage hedge fund managers to regain market share lost in recent years to the hedge fund giants, London based Trium Capital, is pleased to announce the launch of the Trium Multi-manager Alliance (“TMA”), an innovative alliance of early stage hedge fund managers.

TMA provides a solution both to managers needing a quality operational and distribution partner and to investors seeking emerging hedge fund talent with an experienced team providing operational support and risk oversight.

The alliance has been formed as a response to the increasing numbers of prospective hedge fund managers who are seeking to launch a hedge fund or are in the early stages of managing a fund, but for whom the operational and regulatory hurdles are too high in the early growth phase of their business. The alliance aims to stay relevant to managers throughout their growth cycle as the regulatory, due diligence and distribution landscape continues to shift.

Gareth James, CEO of Trium Capital, said “Investors need to be able to get exposure to the higher performing, more focused and less correlated early stage hedge fund managers without also taking the high business risk that this collective group present. TMA is designed to do this, we are facilitating the resurgence of early stage hedge fund managers.”
