“I am very excited to be joining the team at Adaptive,” comments Arin Kamangar. “We are early stage, but we are building something that will last for many years ahead,” he continues. “I am looking forward to settling in with Alexander and the team managing Adaptive Paradigm Alpha, to shape our strategy and process, and to continue to deliver alpha for our unit holders.”

Adaptive Paradigm Alpha has been managed by Adaptive as a sub-threshold alternative investment fund since its inception in January 2020. The market-neutral equity fund relies on a quantamental approach to identify and capture smaller paradigm shifts. The fund has generated a cumulative return of 18 percent since launching in early 2020, translating into a net-of-fees annualized return of 9.9 percent. Adaptive Paradigm Alpha is up 6.9 percent in the first eight months of 2021 and is currently on a ten-month streak of positive monthly returns.

“In the current market environment where investors are hard-pressed to find uncorrelated returns in traditional assets, demand for market-neutral hedge funds are increasing.”
