Devet Capital Investments wins AIF Factor 2016 at the Amsterdam Investor Forum

Sunday, February 28, 2016
Opalesque Industry Update - Devet Capital Investments was voted the AIF Factor 2016 winner during ABN AMRO Clearing’s 5th Amsterdam Investor Forum held today. The fund successfully pitched their investment strategy and convinced a group of over 250 delegates, comprising of investment managers, institutional investors, Hedge funds allocators, high net worth individuals and a jury panel consisting of four industry experts. It was a very close call and a special mention goes to Mint Tower who came narrowly in second place by 0.6%.

“I cannot believe this” said Irene Perdomo, Principal & Founding Partner of Devet Capital Investments. “We are so pleased that our market neutral commodity investment strategy convinced this professional audience. They really liked our track record of consistent positive risk adjusted returns, with controlled drawdowns, with a strict risk management approach. This is achieved through an efficient combination of machines for trade selection and human intervention for the risk management.”

“We have had a great diversity of strategies presented to us this year again, and five impressive finalists” said Gildas Le Treut, Global Head of Prime at ABN AMRO Clearing . “I am especially pleased with the compelling and enthusiastic pitches delivered by the 5 five finalists. I would like to congratulate Devet Capital Investments for winning the AIF Factor. Their dynamism and the clarity of their presentation made a particular impression on the audience which led to a success in a very close race.”
