Quant Hedge was initiated 3 years ago from a desire to share my investment strategies with other partners. I had been running systematic strategies for myself since 2005, but wanted to trade in a more professional way so started looking at fund management companies. At this time the Hedge fund industry was in pretty good condition and many HF and trading managers were attending Investment Forums and Seeding conferences all over the world. I first had the idea of Quant Hedge at GAIM Investment Forum in Monaco in 2007. It was an incredible ambiance of High level conference people and investment standards, melded with Hedge Fund and Money managers, family office firms, Institutional and central bankers; dealing with all kind of investment strategies in a relaxed way with some of the most brilliant traders in the world. I ran out of my 100 box business card on the first day and there were so many people that there was not enough room at the closing party session. During this conference, I met many Systematic fund managers from all over the world and although it looked quite difficult to raise money and manage regulatory purposes, I was willing to take the challenge of starting my electronic trading company.
