About Us

ISAM is an alternative investment manager which specialises in quantitative investing. The management team has amassed over 150 years of experience in the institutional alternative asset management space and in systematic investing in particular.

ISAM believes that markets are fundamentally inefficient. The application of scientific analysis across a wide range of financial markets allows us to capture those inefficiencies. This approach relies on a systematic approach to managing risk using our own sophisticated mathematical techniques.

We offer two core strategies: ISAM Systematic Trend, launched in 2010, and ISAM Quantitative Strategies, launched in 2014.
In January 2015 ISAM also launched its FX prime of prime service, IS Prime.
