Catana Capital to go live with 'revolutionary' AI / Big Data fund

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Precy Dumlao, Opalesque Asia:

Frankfurt, Germany based Catana Capital has announced that its new 'Catana Big data' will go live on 30 June 2016 as a Germany-domiciled public alternative fund (AIF).

Catana Capital said has received the BaFin license according to Sec. 32 of the German Banking Act (KWG) for financial portfolio management. "This is a major milestone and allows us to finally launch our revolutionary Big Data and A.I. fund," Catana said in a statement.

Interim trading update: Up 12.5% YTD

The Trading Strategy is currently run with prop money and up +1.4% for MTD June. The 2016 performance increased to +12.5% YTD. In an extremely volatily month, the benchmark DAX index performed with -2.4% in June so far with a year-to-date performance of -6.8%. As the world awaits the referendum in UK, the Catana system went fully into cash yesterday until two days after the vote.

Catana is led by Holger Knauer who acts as CEO and CRO of Catana Capital GmbH. Prior to that Holger Knauer was a board member responsible for risk management and operations of EUR 1.8bn Celios Investment-AG TGV and its predecessor Prisma Investment AG TGV since 2011. Before that, he was with Universal Investment for more than a decade as a deputy head of the department for institutional sales and relationship management. Holger started his professional career as an Executive Assistant to the Board of Universal after taking his trader examination.
