Best Hedge Fund Manager
Grandmaster Capital Management
Grandmaster Capital is an investment manager founded by Patrick Wolff in January 2011. The firm’s investment process is distinctly opportunistic and qualitative and employs a “macro-informed long/short equity” strategy. The firm believes that traditional bottom-up analysis benefits greatly from a sophisticated understanding of the macro, and will therefore employ both bottom-up and top-down fundamental analysis in security selection and trading. The firm aims to provide a high risk-adjusted total return to investors, primarily investing in publicly traded equity securities and related derivative instruments.
The name of the firm originates from Mr. Wolff’s days as a professional chess player and his attained rank of Grandmaster. This experience had an important and positive influence on his general intellectual framework which, along with his expertise in the area of business and finance, helps inform the investment process.
