What we Do.

At the nexus of finance, data and technology, Nymbus’ evolution has been a continuous exploration of what drives markets and how it can be applied to client portfolios. Our culture of intellectual curiosity compels us to challenge the status quo, disrupt long-held beliefs and uncover new insights. Specialized in quantitative multi-asset investments, the firm leverages its deep scientific and financial markets expertise to offer next generation investment solutions using computer models, with a singular focus on delivering superior risk-adjusted returns.

Why choose Us.

Our quantitative perspective on investing allows us to build strategies that do not rely on subjective forecasts regarding volatility, interest rates, valuation ratios or other variables that drive return. Persistence of excess return is achieved by staying true to the following core themes: Manage risk. Be data-driven. Small opportunities add up. Measure to improve. Diversify and maintain liquidity. Drive results through execution.

Investment Principles

  • Risk analysis centric: Nymbus believes that all investments need to start with risk analysis, not the traditionally taught benchmark comparisons. In our view it is not how investments compare to benchmarks, but how their risks relate to each other across a portfolio. Risk integration techniques enable Nymbus to build what we believe are more successful portfolio foundations.

  • Asymmetric risk-reward profile: Investment ideas must offer an asymmetric, positively skewed risk-reward profile. In other words, selected securities and, in Core-type portfolios, sector overweights must appear, through careful analysis, to offer greater potential payoff than potential loss.

  • Multi-directional analysis: Portfolios must be constructed with an aim to outperform under a range of future scenarios. In other words, Nymbus shuns risk-taking based on unidirectional forecasts regarding interest rates, default rates or other variables that drive return.
