Our Values

Excellence, Innovation, Teamwork, Integrity, Fun

  • Excellence

    The pursuit of excellence permeates all of Systematica’s activities. In Leda’s words, “I don’t know if we are the best at what we do, but we certainly work hard every day aiming to be just that.”

    The team has amassed an impressive list of industry awards over the years – two main fund awards in 2017 alone!

  • Innovation

    Technology is making firm in-roads into the world of investment management and Systematica has been at the leading edge of that wave for over a decade now. New, exotic data sources, the ability to trade markets that in the past had been inaccessible, electronic trading… These are all trends that benefit firms with a tradition of innovation.

    Systematica profits from years of investment in technology and proprietary trading platforms. We are passionate about devising solutions and technology is the key driver of our constant search for more creative approaches to delivering returns and managing risk.

  • Team Work

    One Team One Dream mentality! Our platform enables us to be agile, flexible and robust and our people are at the heart of this. We are a group of high calibre professionals looking to pursue our Core Mission. Collaborative working environment within and across all functional teams. Rigorous review by peers throughout the research and development cycle.

  • Integrity

    Intensely aware that we are responsible for clients’ assets, the Systematica Team lives and breathes integrity. Integrity is natural in an environment which is transparent and fair.

  • Fun

    … and we have fun along the way! The Systematica team is characterised by its collective sense of humour. This sense of humour is part of our serious day-to-day work life but also shows in other team activities such as the Systematica band or the sport and fitness initiative across the firm – “Systemaction”.

OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY Analysis, not emotions! What gets measured gets managed. We aim to be systematic investors and avoid intervening with the algorithms
 - our interaction with the models is via the research process.

Significant investment in technology 
– our trading platform is in its third generation. All aspects of the investment process and platform are subject to continuous research and improvement.
