London based Trium Capital is ramping up its one-year-old platform of early stage hedge fund managers with the addition of QLO Capital to the firm’s multi-manger platform.
QLO Capital—which is now part of the Trium Multi-manager Alliance—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. QLO has a positive live track record over the past eight years, recently managing $450 million for ATP in Denmark. The strategy was initiated by Lars Wind, who was then 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."
Additionally, Trium is making a marketing push, explaining that its multi-manager alliance serves as 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.
James 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.”
He added that managers in the alliance “benefit from significant economies of scale, high-end infrastructure, highly qualified and experienced management and coordinated distribution support.”
