Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Commodity-focused Calculo Capital has grown beyond Philip Engel Carlsson’s one-person shop with the hiring of Victor Lund Klestrup Hansen as a quantitative analyst. The new hire is expanding the data-analysis and research-based capabilities powering the artificial intelligence-assisted trend-following strategy employed by Calculo Evolution Fund.

“Victor Lund Klestrup Hansen will join Calculo Capital as Quantitative Analyst from May 1,” says Philip Engel Carlsson, who launched Calculo Evolution Fund during the summer of 2018. Hansen joins Calculo Capital from the quant desk at Danske Bank, where he mainly worked on the maintenance and development of trading applications and on producing various value and risk calculations across a variety of products. He graduated from Copenhagen University with a focus on mathematical models, statistics and machine learning and holds programming competencies in multiple languages such as Python, C++, C# and R.

“We look forward to working with Victor and to help him unleash his full potential in combining theoretical expertise with hands-on experience in a role where he will be able to set his footprints.”

“Victor is a good fit for the growth plans of Calculo Capital,” Carlsson comments on Victor Lund Klestrup Hansen joining Calculo Capital. “We look forward to working with Victor and to help him unleash his full potential in combining theoretical expertise with hands-on experience in a role where he will be able to set his footprints,” adds the Calculo Capital founder. “We will continue to build on our in-house developed trading platform and continue to work on machine learning methodologies that can assist and improve our trading algorithms.”

Calculo Evolution Fund advanced 9.7 percent in the first quarter of 2022 and has delivered an annualized return of 4.7 percent since launching in August 2018 with a negative 0.03 correlation with the MSCI World and a 0.37 correlation with the SG CTA Index. “This summer we are reaching four years of track record, where we can show stability, good risk-reward balanced returns and no correlation towards traditional assets,” says Carlsson.
