PAG, a Hong Kong-based independent alternative investment fund manager, has hired a new quantitative investment and research team, based in Geneva, to launch a new business applying quantitative techniques to fundamental investments.

The business, known as PAG Investment Solutions, is led by Edgar van Tuyll, formerly chief quantitative strategist at Pictet, where he and his team managed a USD1 billion portfolio. Van Tuyll comes to PAG with 22 years of experience in quantitative and global macro investing.
“Traditional investment management is at the core of our strategy,” says Albert Collette, Partner at PAG Investment Solutions. “Our goal has been to improve this traditional approach by using recent IT developments, including the instant processing of hundreds of millions of data sources and new analysis techniques backed by rigorous scientific methods. These approaches and models have been tested over many years and have helped us establish a proven investment track record.”
Van Tuyll and Collette bring with them to PAG a team with strong expertise in portfolio management, machine learning and artificial intelligence, physics, statistical mechanics and mathematics. Members include complex systems expert Dr Wanfeng Yan, physicist Dr Guillaume van Baalen and number theorist Dr Mingxi Wang, as well as Eyal Hanouna, an experienced portfolio manager; Samuel Amar, formerly head of IT at one of Europe’s leading biotech companies; and Lisa Taylor, formerly deputy head of operations at Lombard Odier.
Chris Gradel, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer of PAG, says: “The application of technology to investing, and the understanding of the impact of quantitative investing on the markets, cannot be ignored. We are confident that we are partnering with one of the most talented teams in the business, with proven models and an excellent track record.”
