The Aquantum Group

Edge

Aquantum is an institutional asset manager and specialist strategy provider with a strict focus on absolute return trading strategies. Our edge is to trade seasonally recurring inefficiencies in the commodity markets which are caused by human behavior. Aquantum’s trading strategies are characterized by

  • very low correlation to other asset classes,

  • independence of macro-economic, monetary and geopolitical influences, and

  • daily liquidity

and enable investors to harvest a unique source of alpha.
