R.G. Niederhoffer Capital Management

R. G. Niederhoffer Capital Management (“RGNCM”), Inc. is a 23-year-old New York-based quantitative trading advisor that aims to significantly improve the overall return and risk-adjusted return of its institutional, fund of funds, and high net worth clients while maintaining a consistently negative correlation to equities and hedge funds. RGNCM employs a short-term, mostly contrarian strategy to trade the world’s largest and most liquid equity, fixed income, foreign exchange and commodity markets. Founder Roy Niederhoffer graduated in 1987 from Harvard University with a degree in Computational Neuroscience, and the firm’s investment strategy takes its inspiration from this field. The underlying principle of the strategy is that markets are predictable in the short-term because their movements are influenced by the psychology of market participants. The strategy has a long volatility profile as volatility triggers predictable emotional responses (greed/fear) from both human traders as well as computerized systems. Our strategy seeks to provide a unique protection against key factors most investors are exposed to: volatility, beta, and momentum/trend.
