INVESTMENT APPROACH

Aspect Capital believes in a statistical and evidence-based approach to investing. The company combines scientific principles and leading-edge technology to identify predictable and statistically measurable behaviours in market prices.


Each idea is tested, researched and reviewed – with findings critically evaluated every step of the way – to find human behaviours within the data that create market effects and provide persistence. Even the weakest effects can be identified by Aspect’s disciplined trading and sophisticated algorithms. Successful ideas are then built into the robust investment process. The result is innovative investment solutions that generate diversifying performance for investors.
