Lakeroad manages a long/short global equity hedge fund
using a mix of quantitative, systematic and machine learning strategies.

Lakeroad combines over 45 years of experience in quantitative investment management.
Our core objective is to maximize performance through a flexible but disciplined investment process.

We serve high net-worth individuals, family offices and small institutional investors.



We focus on two things: DATA and SIGNALS. We make investment decisions based solely on robust statistical and mathematical calculations. Our core philosophy is that investment opportunities varies with market regimes. As a team, we spend most of our time developing and improving our market signals and optimizing models to allocate capital efficiently based on those signals. Capital is allocated to LONG, SHORT and/or RELATIVE winning strategies, depending on our market sentiment signals. It’s that simple.

Our competitive edge comes from two factors: SPEED and SCOPE. Our investment approach combines quantitative, systematic and machine learning strategies. In a few hours, our systems score over one million global equity and currency strategies, as part of what we call a “tournament”. Only the most consistent strategies survive. The goal of our quant model is to use statistics and mathematics to determine the winning strategies faster than fundamental investors. That ability to capitalize on structural inefficiencies faster and on a global scale is what separates us from others.


Net annualized return of over 17% since inception…

Our systems identify and quantify risks in real-time. We do not react to market actions and daily news. The flexibility in our investment approach allows us to rapidly adapt to any changes in market regimes. This approach eliminates noise, hype and emotions in order to make unbiased, disciplined investment decisions. We are building a long-term sustainable business. And in that sense, technology and computer science is very much embedded in all parts of our business. Our team understands that research and development is crucial for Lakeroad to remain ahead.
