WHO WE ARE
Trident Capital Management LLC is a quantitative, systematic global/macro alternative investment manager headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.
At Trident, we focus on the reason “why” quantitative market signals produce excess returns, not just the fact that they produce the returns themselves. Each equation and resulting signal or risk management technique has sound fundamental reasoning behind it; we will never be guilty of overfitting. Our trading signals come from many areas but mostly center on the results of market liquidity imbalances that suddenly shock markets and cause dramatic changes in risk appetite.
Trident’s goal is to determine when risk is “on” or “off” and position itself to profit either way. Whether global stock markets go up or down does not matter to the Trident philosophy. Further we express our market risk purely in the futures markets, so we are registered with the CFTC and NFA as a Commodity Trading Advisor and Pool Operator (CTA and CPO).
