Round Table Discussion: CTA & Systematic Macro


Stockholm (HedgeNordic) -At HedgeNordic, it has become a much-treasured tradition to close the year with a roundtable discussion among systematic macro and CTA managers spiced up with some local allocators. This year, for the first me, we invited our guests not to Stockholm, but to Finland ́s capitol, Helsinki. The city was preparing for the climax to the celebrations for the centenary of Finland’s independence, on December 6th.

Joining the discussion were managers from some of the world’s leading CTAs and systematic macro funds along with up-and-coming managers bringing the perspective of smaller hedge funds to the table. Local allocators were invited to share their views and experiences.

We were joined by representatives from Estlander & Partners, AHL, SMN, Lynx, Efficient Capital, Aspect, AIM Capital, Elite Asset Management, IPM and Paris based Key Quant.
