Magnetar's Quantitative Approach
We believe that significant opportunities exist by marrying quantitative approaches with established hedge fund investing expertise.
Our quantitative investment approach is broken into two core parts: Alternative Risk Premia and Tactical Trading.
Magnetar’s Alternative Risk Premia strategy development is rooted in our long history of active management and the quantitative rigor we apply to all of our businesses. The criteria for researching and determining potential risk premia strategies incorporates our historical active investing intuition with characteristics we deem to be important such as persistence, robustness and investability.
Tactical Trading is a mid-frequency, quantitative investment process that applies equities and derivatives based strategies. The business leverages a robust ongoing research process to generate ideas as well as a rigorous evaluation process.
