New York Based Alternative Systematic Investment Firm Launches in Australia

July 12, 2020

ARP Investments (“ARP”) has entered the Australian market via an exclusive partnership with Australia based Placement Agent, Axius Partners. The New York based firm is currently raising capital from Australian Institutional and Wholesale investors for their Liquid Alternative strategies.

ARP currently manages US$2 billion in assets and is a boutique technology and innovation driven alternative systematic investment firm who seek to generate superior risk-adjusted returns that are uncorrelated with equities and bonds. The liquid strategies which ARP manage include Systematic Alpha Global Macro, Systematic Alpha Merger Arbitrage, Systematic Alpha Trend Following, and Alternative Risk Premia (Multi-Risk Premia).

“The partnership with the well regarded team at Axius allows ARP Investments to continue introducing the firm’s Liquid Alternative products to the Australian investor base. ARP’s extensive experience working with some of the largest and most sophisticated investors globally is well-suited for the Australian investment community. ARP’s products, particularly the Systematic Alpha Global Macro Fund, have diversification benefits that served the firm’s clients well during the Q1 2020 market disruptions. Working with Axius, ARP looks forward to adding value to Australian investor portfolios.” – DeWayne Louis, Founding Partner, ARP Investments.

“Axius is delighted to welcome ARP to its suite of fund manager partners. The use of a scientific, data-intensive investment process that is operated by a deeply experienced team with decades of quantitative investment research help set apart ARP from other investment managers in the space. As volatility in the broad equity markets has materially increased in recent times, we believe the market neutral focus of the Systematic Alpha Global Macro strategy that seeks to deliver consistent returns will be received well in the Australian market.” – George Giovas, Managing Director, Axius Partners.
