who we are
At Genio Capital we systematically and dynamically identify and extract alpha in global financial markets. Plain and simple. Sources of alpha evolve and their magnitudes vary over time and our quantitative investment programs are designed to capture this alpha for our clients. This is the core of who we are.
Genio Capital is a quantitative investment house founded in 2016. We specialize in 100% systematic and learning-based/adaptive investment strategies across asset classes and product categories, where focus is on originality and scientific altitude. Our unique investment philosophy, technical platform and open architecture, ensures that our returns are not only attractive from a risk-adjusted point-of-view but also uncorrelated to peers and benchmarks - and products can be tailored to any degree. This is how we provide our investors with valued diversification. The world is changing - are you ready?

Financial markets are low validity environments, i.e. they are hard to predict!
Quantitative investment strategies successfully apply advanced methodologies to tackle the low validity issues in a rational and consistent manner. Quantitative strategies are highly scalable and can be applied across multiple time horizons, from hourly holding periods, through daily and monthly.
As a result, these strategies can provide investors with additional and diversified sources of returns.
Society is experiencing a technological revolution with far reaching consequences. The rate of change and volumes of data are increasing at an extraordinary pace.
In investment management, this is both a challenge and an opportunity. Quantitative investment strategies have the ability to intelligently process vast quantities of data, react and adapt, by utilising the very technologies that are driving the revolution.
At Genio Capital we have decades of experience of quantitative and systematic investing. We have a clear philosophy regarding the sources of returns and highly adaptive models utilising cutting edge proprietary learning algorithms, combined with a highly scalable institutional grade investment platform. We make it - and keep it - simple.
We manage capital on behalf of institutions, pension funds, family offices and high-net-worth clients in a variety of programs and structures, including solutions-based white-label products. Let us help you, too.
