Quant fund Goldsky Asset up 16.05 per cent YTD

Goldsky Asset Management, an Australia-based quantmental and behavioural science-focused hedge fund that specialises in global equities, has gained 16.05 per cent year-to-date, beating its index benchmark by 7.94 per cent.

The hedge fund has delivered a consistent 19.45 per cent per annum return to investors since inception in December 2015.
 
The strong performance of Goldsky Asset was well ahead of the 12.66 per cent return by the benchmark MSCI AC World Net index over the same period, the company.
 
Goldsky says their quantitative behavioural science models and methods are providing actionable data 24/7. Utilisation and incorporation of behavioural big data in the economic models allow the fund manager to see trends and movements before the global markets, allowing the fund to capitalise on any positive or negative movements.
 
Goldsky executive Jack Bow said that the company’s quantmental concept and the role of behavioural economics is a cutting edge and unique model.
 
“Our process of mathematical analysing historic securities data combined with real-time behavioural analysis is unique. It is this process that gives our investment the edge in a constantly fluctuating world market. Our research method employs proprietary computer-assisted fundamental, technical and behavioural analyses of securities and derivatives. With this information, we can accurately predict fluctuations and determine potential price movements of individual equities and the broader markets,” Bow says.
