Dec 16, 2021

This week we spoke with Glen Burella, PhD, Vice President, Business Development at Abbey Capital (US). Glen previously worked on the investment research side of Abbey Capital having a background in quantum computing and a theoretical physics PHD.


Our conversation with Glen covered the following themes:


  • The incredible combination of stocks and trend following
  • Glen’s attraction to science and math
  • A glimpse inside a PhD in quantum physics
  • First days at a new quant firm
  • Behind the scenes at Abbey Capital’s research division
  • Launching new products and taking business risk
  • Abbey Capital’s focus on multi-manager portfolios
  • Why multi-manager instead of single ensemble?
  • Dealing with performance fees in a multi-manager portfolio
  • Segregated accounts vs trade netting
  • Selecting managers and assembling portfolios
  • The role of CTAs in institutional mandates
  • How CTAs are an optimal solution for the coming inflation volatility regime


Thank you for watching and listening. See you next week.
