AMG completes Systematic investment


Affiliated Managers Group (AMG) has completed its investment in Systematica Investments. In addition, AMG has also recently completed investments in Ivory Investment Management (Ivory) and Abax Investments (Abax).

Systematica, led by Leda Braga, is an technology-driven firm focused on the application of science and technology to the investment process and focuses on managed futures and systematic trading management. Systematica became an independent organisation in January 2015 following its separation from BlueCrest and now offers a number of distinctive strategies, including trend-following and quantitative equity investing in both traditional hedge fund vehicles as well as liquid alternatives.
Systematica’s award-winning strategies have significantly outperformed relevant industry benchmarks and peers over the long-term. Systematica manages assets for a diverse global client base which includes pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, foundations, and high net worth individuals. With offices in Geneva, London, New York, Singapore, and Jersey, the firm’s 48 investment professionals are managed by Leda Braga, Chief Executive Officer, along with her senior management team.
Ivory is an investment firm with a 17-year history of alpha generation through a research-intensive, fundamental value-based approach. Ivory manages assets across long/short equity and long-only investment strategies, with the principal investment objective of delivering high absolute returns on a risk-adjusted basis, with low correlation to market indices. The firm has a consistent track record of capital preservation during periods of market dislocation, and has generated significant alpha across multiple market cycles since inception, meaningfully outperforming the S&P 500 across all relevant time periods. Founded in 1998 by Head Portfolio Manager Curtis Macnguyen, the firm’s senior partner group includes President and Chief Operating Officer Mark Waissar, Senior Portfolio Managers Neil Chudgar and Brad Lundy, and Head Trader Matt Bailey.
Abax offers South African equity, fixed income, and strategic and tactical asset allocation strategies, as well as a separate global equity strategy; it employs a disciplined, fundamental research approach to investing in companies with strong potential earnings growth over the medium and long term, and has steadily delivered excellent returns for its clients across mandates and over all relevant time periods. Based in Cape Town, Abax serves retail and institutional clients across an array of equity, balanced, and hedge fund strategies. The firm was established in 2003 and is led by senior partners Anthony Sedgwick, Marius van Rooyen, Omri Thomas, and Steve Minnaar.
