About Cantab

Cantab, part of GAM Systematic, is an investment team based in Cambridge, UK, managing a multi-billion portfolio of several funds.

We employ a rigorous, systematic, multi-strategy, multi-asset approach, often referred to as systematic or managed futures.  We manage assets for sophisticated professional investors worldwide including large pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, fund of funds and others. 
Cantab was founded in 2006 by Dr Ewan Kirk. In October 2016, Cantab was acquired by GAM.  Cantab forms the cornerstone of the newly created GAM Systematic platform.  This new investment platform is co-headed by Adam Glinsman, CEO of Cantab, and Anthony Lawler, Head of Portfolio Management at GAM's Alternative Investments Solutions (AIS) Group.
The foundation of our investment philosophy is the marriage of science with cutting-edge technology, high levels of transparency and robust risk management systems.
Our strategies trade liquid futures and currency forwards and are implemented by a proprietary analysis and trading system under constant review by our team of scientists.
The majority of our team are dedicated to investment and technology research.  Cantab's investment team combines a diverse skill set.  Most of us come from academic backgrounds having excelled at statistics, physics, computer science or other quantitative disciplines, with the common denominators being academic excellence and the shared collegial spirit. We believe that a collegial atmosphere and the spirit of teamwork is an integral part of Cantab’s investment philosophy.  Our scientists work in the same shared technological environment that allows us to share ideas and knowledge.
We have access to some of the most sophisticated technologies in use, including high-frequency, multi-threaded and distributed engines, fast synchronised databases, financial analytic libraries and purpose-tailored languages.  Since inception we have built a 'cathedral of software' that allows us to undertake a plethora of investment, operational and reporting tasks very efficiently.  This technological eco-system underpins Cantab’s practices.  It allows us to develop new investment strategies and monitor the existing ones, trade seamlessly, maintain a sophisticated managed account infrastructure with minimal tracking error, create new products and provide investors with accurate and detailed reporting.
