Company background

QuantMetrics was founded in 2003 by Dr. Mushtaq Shah and James Fowler who have worked together for over 16 years in quantitative investment management.  The firm specializes in short-term systematic strategies, offering two products (one market neutral and one directional) as well as a multi-strategy fund that allocates to both. Each product uses statistical and econometric models to exploit small and temporary pricing discrepancies in futures markets. Products benefit from low correlation and high liquidity. 

Investment goal

The QM Multi Strategy Fund is an offshore hedge fund that trades a combination of two managed futures strategies offered by Quantmetrics – QM Premier and QM Directional weighted for a target volatility of 10%. It is designed to make money in all market environments, albeit more in a crisis, and is an excellent diversifier within a portfolio context.

Markets traded

Financial and commodities futures, and spot FX.


The Quantmetrics Multi Strategy Fund employs short term systematic strategies with a typical holding period of a few hours to a few days. The fund aims to return 15% per annum with a target annualised volatility of 10% by capturing price pressure arising from the predictable behavioural biases of certain market agents. The strategy trades in highly liquid financial futures and spot FX across the developed global markets and seeks to provide notable returns in low volatility environments as well as significant downside protection at times of market stress. The trading profile allows for swift reactions to new catalysts, while a short holding period lowers the chance of being caught by idiosyncratic events and profiting from the opportunities they present.
