Sequoia Hill Capital Management
Sequoia Capital Fund Management LLP (“SCFM”) is a quantitative investment manager based in the UK and formed in 2011 as a spin-out from Sequoia Capital LLP, an options market-making firm established by CEO, Douglas Garistina in 1996. SCFM’s strengths derive from an exceptionally strong and diverse team of quants with a robust research and trading approach. Underlying this is an institutional-quality infrastructure built by SCFM’s in-house operations and software teams.
The focus of SCFM’s investment process is on short-term systematic strategies. Everything from the data-driven models to risk-management & post trade operations is automated and standardised, allowing for a consistently delivered investment process. A close and transparent relationship is a cornerstone of the SCFM client experience to ensure an alignment of between the investors’ and manager’s expectations and goals.
To date, SCFM has launched a G10 FX strategy targeting a 15% annualised volatility and providing a highly differentiating returns stream to its investors. SCFM’s long-term expectation for this strategy is a Sharpe Ratio of 2.0 and a Sortino Ratio in excess of 3.5. Short-term, for SCFM, refers to a position holding period averaging a little less than 2 days as this is where SCFM believes genuine Alpha opportunities can be found. As such, SCFM’s strategies are not correlated to any of the major benchmarks.
