Fort Rock Asset Management launches liquid strategies business

Friday, August 21, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - Gemini Hedge Fund Services, has partnered with Fort Rock Asset Management to launch the investment manager’s new business in managed futures, CTAs and currency managers.

“Fort Rock Asset Management utilizes its experience in managed futures and currency strategies to provide investors with alternative investment solutions that are designed to perform across full market cycles,” said David Young, President of Gemini Hedge Fund Services. “Their long careers and DNA with Société Générale Newedge gives them a unique perspective on managed futures strategies. We look forward to working with them as they develop their new business and seek to deliver an uncorrelated source of alpha to their clients.”

Gemini Hedge will provide fund administration services to Fort Rock’s managed futures and currency investment vehicles, including comprehensive reporting, compliance oversight and other investor service capabilities. By handling these middle and back-office responsibilities, and giving fund managers and investors access to a broad spectrum of data and regular reporting through its superior technology platform, Gemini Hedge gives Fort Rock the freedom to spend more time on manager selection and asset growth.

“Our Liquid Strategies business line represents the culmination of more than 30 years of manager analysis in our previous positions with Société Générale Newedge combined with custom in-house developed quantitative analysis. This analysis was developed in conjunction with Dr. Matthew Schneider, our Director of Quantitative Research. We believe that it is this combination – the qualitative manager assessment combined with a quantitative overlay – that gives investors exposure to what we believe are promising investments in this asset class,” said Jonathan Gane, Chief Executive Officer of Fort Rock Asset Management. “Gemini Hedge, as an experienced hedge fund administrator and service provider, is ideally positioned to support the growth of our new business and help us bring to market alternative products which generate alpha, preserve capital and mitigate risk.”
