QuantZ Capital Management hasn’t lost a step this year as it pushes towards 2012 up by double-digits.
While many of its peers have suffered some nauseating ups-and-downs over the past several months, QuantZ's Quark Equity Market Neutral Fund has been a paragon of consistency, rising 2.46% in August, 2.5% in September and 3.91% in October, leaving the fund up 16.45% on the year.
"We have reason to believe that, regardless of any year-end seasonal relief rallies, most traditional and hedge fund strategies are likely to disappoint in the decade to come," QuantZ wrote, citing continuing troubles in Europe and the U.S. deadlock on deficit reduction. And, citing several recent studies showing that women make better risk managers, the firm unveiled a new motto, of sorts: "No cowboy acts. Trade like a girl."
QuantZ has had only two down months all year, January and July.
