New Jersey Firm Unveils Quant Fund

Sep 8 2006 | 12:00am ET

QuantInvest has launched its first hedge fund, a long/short and statistical arbitrage vehicle. The New Jersey-based fund, which is being managed by Pierre Vaysse, will invest in 20-40 mega-cap stocks and employ pattern recognition programs more commonly associated with high-end scientific research, according to an investor in the fund.

“The principles, datasets and algorithms built thereon, are designed to be timeless and dynamic. The fund is not dependent on mean reverting pairs or similar overexploited statistical strategies,” the investor wrote in an email to FINalternatives, adding that the fund provides monthly liquidity.

The size of the fund could not be determined, but thus far investors consist of high-net-worth individuals. VanthedgePoint Group is serving as a prime broker to the fund.
