Proprietary trading is the focus of Raptor’s business. The firm specializes in basket trading, sector trading, statistical arbitrage, quantitative strategies, and high frequency trading (HFT). Raptor operates on the premise that HFT is poised to grow exponentially in coming years, as it has in the US markets. Raptor’s infrastructure allows the firm to harmonize proprietary traders while also harvesting intellectual capital and developing advanced trading software. Raptor believes that stagnation, in the investment world, is death. Thus, it is in the business of expanding trading ideas and not relying on outdated, under-productive strategies. Raptor employs the trading strategies that are most effective in the current marketplace.
Raptor recognizes the significant potential of quantitatively-driven investment strategies, and has made substantial capital allocations in the space. As part of its commitment, Raptor created the “Quantitative Manager Initiative” for portfolio managers with quantitative, market-neutral and other statistically-driven strategies that focus on short to medium term global equities trading.
Qualified portfolio managers are given the opportunity to:
- Receive generous, creative and formulaic payouts to maximize their earnings potential.
- Satisfy their need for stable, scalable, risk-tolerant capital.
- Establish independent management companies and have access to Raptor’s service provider network.
- Maintain their autonomy.
- Maintain portable track records.
- Retain their intellectual property rights.
- Integrate into a customizable state-of-the-art, low-latency technology environment.
- Have a global presence and significant location flexibility.
Raptor has constructed a portfolio of investment strategies through proprietary ventures with investment managers as well as allocations to external hedge fund investments using an academic approach that is similar to the approach it uses when developing direct trading strategies. Proprietary analytics are applied to portfolio composition to evaluate opportunities and risk, and to effectively allocate capital.
Managers who employ quantitative, statistically-driven strategies that focus on short to medium term trading are encouraged to contact Raptor to explore this exceptional opportunity.
