Neural Capital
Systematic Trend Strategy

A  diversification for investment portfolios 

Our philosophy: what we believe

The future cannot be predicted

Financial markets are riskier than most participants appreciate

The behavioural patterns of humans are consistent and pervasive

Our strategy: how we do it

We apply a scientific approach to financial markets to formulate investment strategies that are repeatable, accurate and seek to eliminate investment bias.

Over the years we have developed a disciplined and systematic investment process which attempts to exploit the behavioural features of a diversified portfolio of liquid futures contracts.

Combined with our long-term trading experience, hard-won insights, tireless dedication and highly personal approach to service, we strive to achieve double digit absolute returns.
