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

Lakeroad’s team combines over 40 years of experience in quantitative investment management.
Our core objective is to maximize performance through a disciplined investment process.

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



Our investment strategy uses a proprietary quantitative model to rank mid-cap and large-cap North American equities from best to worst. The quantitative model generates growth for our investors by combining value, momentum, sentiment and proprietary factors. We buy undervalued shares and short-sell overvalued shares for hedging and profit making purposes. The fund targets a predictable rolling 6-month absolute return for its investors, while maintaining a low correlation to traditional benchmarks.

Our approach is simple. Our execution is systematic. We use no financial leverage. Lakeroad’s competitive edge comes from a combined 40 years of experience in quantitative analysis, both as portfolio manager and investment bankers. We consistently test the effectiveness of our model to make sure it continues to provide repeatable returns in the future.


We manage risks. Then returns.

Risk management is at the core of our every day responsibilities. Instead of reacting to daily events, Lakeroad manages risks upstream through its efficient investment process. Our approach is well structured, disciplined, and eliminates the emotional dimension of portfolio management. In other words, we turn down the “noise” when making our investment decisions… and it produces superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors.

For us, it’s not which hedge fund strategy we use,
but it’s how effective we are at exploiting the strategy we choose.

We are an independent, management-owned investment firm and we do not receive compensation from investment banking and/or brokerage research. Our partners and their family members have a significant portion of their net-worth invested in the fund and investment strategies – a critical factor which we think best aligns our interests with those of our investors.
