Systematic Alpha Management, a New York based commodity trading adviser, has appointed Salomon Josue as its independent marketing representative in Asia.
Josue is the founder and president of Asia Pacific Advisors, an alternative investment consulting and capital introduction firm focusing on the Asia Pacific market.
Prior to forming APA, he spent over nine years conducting capital introduction activities for other firms in the alternative sector.
"We are pleased to welcome Mr. Josue aboard Systematic Alpha," says Systematic Alpha Management chief executive Peter Kambolin. "We believe Salomon’s expertise in working with Asia Pacific investors, deep understanding of his extensive client base, knowledge of local traditions and Japanese language, will be instrumental in helping our firm grow its presence among the Asian investors. We look forward to a long term and mutually beneficial relationship with Mr. Josue."
Systematic Alpha currently manages USD640m in two trading programmes: Systematic Alpha Futures, a short term, market neutral, mean reversion based strategy established in 2001, and Systematic Alpha Diversified, a recently launched short term trend-following strategy.
