If you’re looking to make money during a crisis, quant trading is a great place to be. Check out this interview with quant hedge fund trader Mark Carhart:
The essential points to take away from this are:
1) Done properly, quant trading makes money in any market — even during a crisis.
The highlighted fund has made 13% since inception (including 5% this year), while the average hedge fund gained only 2.15 percent, while the Newedge Macro Trading Index grew only 0.74 percent.
2) Quant trading is a growth sector.
Quoted proof: “We are speaking with a number of huge institutional investors who are very excited about this area and there is definitely an appetite for these kinds of funds,” said Rishi Narang, whose firm, T2AM, invests in quant funds.
3) Quant trading methods (and funds) are still relatively unknown.
As the manager in the article says, “We are quiet, modest and under the radar, and we want to stay that way.”
That’s a great analogy for quant trading as a whole, never mind one fund! And it’s exactly why there are so few people willing to share what they know. Quants like to be secretive.
