Best Momentum-Based Investment Strategy (the Aspect Diversified Programme)
Aspect Capital Limited (‘Aspect’) is a London-based investment manager. The company applies a systematic and quantitative approach to investment management, with the aim of generating high-quality and diversifying alpha for its clients' portfolios.
Aspect currently manages USD5.1billion (as at 1st January 2015), which is primarily invested in the Aspect Diversified Programme (and a range of modified implementations) via a series of fund and client-specific managed account vehicles.
Aspect was established in 1997 by Anthony Todd, Martin Lueck, Michael Adam and Eugene Lambert and is currently managed by a senior team which has extensive experience in the development and implementation of systematic investment strategies. Two of Aspect’s founders, Michael Adam and Martin Lueck, were involved in the successful development of Adam, Harding & Lueck (‘AHL’, now a part of Man Group plc), one of the pioneers in the application of quantitative techniques to investment management.
Aspect employs a team of over 110 professionals and invests heavily in the on-going research-driven evolution of its quantitative alpha-generating systems and their efficient implementation across a wide range of liquid asset classes.
The company emphasises strong corporate governance and the provision of first class investor service to a client base which includes many of the world's leading institutional investors.
