London (PRUnderground) December 3rd, 2013
Richard Bateson, the ex-CIO of the multi-strategy Man AHL Dimension/Core Advanced fund, has left Man Group plc, the World’s largest listed hedge fund with over $50bn of assets, to establish a new asset management company – London Quantitative Investments (LQI) based in Mayfair, London.
The new venture, LQI, is a boutique asset manager specialising in quantitative investments across a wide range of asset classes including equities, bonds, FX, commodities and credit. LQI has just launched its flagship product, the Multi-Strategy Certificates, which employ a variety of successful non-trend strategies to generate stable capital growth across all market cycles. Richard Bateson said “Trend following strategies have disappointed in recent years and many investors are now looking for an alternative. LQI will provide attractive, high liquidity strategies uncorrelated to traditional trend followers.”
Richard is a former Cambridge University and CERN physicist and was recently a Research Committee member of the Oxford-Man Institute at Oxford University. Previously a Managing Director at Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) he is joined at LQI by ex-Goldman Sachs alumni Jonathan Greenhalgh and ex-Lehman banker Patrick Coppens.
