GAM Systematic Cambridge is a multi-billion dollar investment team based in Cambridge.


We are proud to support the following organisations and events:

  • Cambridge Hackathon

    29 January 2016

    Cantab are proud to have sponsored the Cambridge Hackathon, a 24-hour programming event that took place on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st January 2016 at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

    The Hackathon brought together 400 of the most talented students from around the world to produce projects and find innovative solutions to complex problems.

    Cantab sent a team of 13 people (including 11 scientists) to the Hackathon to act as mentors to the participants, to guide them through challenges and encourage creative thinking. At the end of the event, representatives of Cantab acted as judges to the competition. In addition, Cantab presented a 30 minutes workshop entitled ‘Computers in Finance’.

    The Hackathon has been organised by a group of Cambridge University students.
  • World Land Speed Record Attempt: Bloodhound SSC

    3 August 2015

    Cantab is very proud to be sponsoring ‘The Bloodhound Project’, a plan to smash the world land speed record and at the same time inspire the next generation of Scientists and Engineers.

    Conceived and constructed in the UK, Bloodhound SSC is a supersonic car, designed to break the 1,000mph barrier and set a new world land speed record. 

    The Bloodhound team are developing a large hybrid rocket motor, designed to be powerful, efficient and safe.  Apart from the difficulty of achieving the performance, the mathematical, scientific, technical and engineering challenges are many and varied.  Ensuring that the structure is strong and rigid enough to deal with 20 tons of drag, and ensuring that the wheels hold together while spinning more at more than 10000 rpm are just two examples of many.  The team will make extensive use of computer modelling and expertise across science to overcome such hurdles and are also committed to sharing their passion for science through their extensive education program that forms an integral part of the project.

    Cantab is delighted to be supporting this project, and looks forward to watching the Bloodhound story unfold.

Their journal, Eureka, is published annually.

  • Cambridge Finance Seminar Series

    Cantab was delighted to be sponsoring a series of seminars at the Centre for Mathematical Studies in Cambridge.

    The seminars, in partnership with the Cambridge Finance group, give members of the University the chance to hear about and discuss a variety of mathematical finance-related topics.
    The first seminar took place in November 2012 in which Rama Cont, Professor of Mathematics and Chair in Mathematical Finance at Imperial College, London spoke about his research.  Professor Cont was awarded the Louis Bachelier Prize by the French Academy of Sciences in 2010 for his research on mathematical modelling in finance, recently joined Imperial College, having held teaching and research positions at Ecole Polytechnique, Columbia University and Université Pierre & Marie Curie.
  • CUCATS – Cambridge University Computer and Technology Society

  • The First and Third Trinity College Boat Club

    5 November 2012

    Cantab is proud to be sponsoring First and Third Trinity Boat Club, the boat club of Trinity College, Cambridge. The club officially formed in 1946, but has been in existence since around 1825.

    Rowing is a very popular sport at Cambridge University – well over 1500 students compete for their colleges every year.  Trinity College's boat club is the biggest and one of the most successful clubs on the river. Each year up to a hundred new students learn to row from scratch, many of whom go on to represent the college, and in some cases the University.  About 10% of the college are active members of the boat club at any one time, and around 90% of Trinity undergraduates try rowing at some point in their college career.
    Both the women’s and men’s squads occupy extremely high positions in the ‘Bumps’ – the traditional Cambridge University races on the River Cam – and the last couple of years have seen record numbers of wins in all types of boats and over all distances on the Cam. Cantab is delighted to be supporting First and Third, and looks forward to cheering the crews to victory from the banks of the Cam!
