The traditional world of investing is slowly changing, and a new trend has emerged with the rise of female founders in the hedge fund industry. Recent statistics have shown that the percentage of women in hedge funds has been increasing. One fund manager to watch out for is Eva Maria Kullmann, who has been making waves in the industry with her unique approach to investment management.
As former Managing Director of a Dubai and London based family office, Eva Maria Kullmann understood, that the traditional style of investing for High-Net-Worth Individuals (HNWI) and Ultra-High Net Worth Individuals (UHNWI) must change to encounter the prevailing market frenzy.
During the pandemic, many portfolios lost tremendous value and posed a significant challenge to asset managers which are experiencing new measures of Volatility.
Pondering on the implication of having an investment product that could combine the stability of real estate with the explosive returns of stock markets – all encapsulated within a safe and reliable investment structure, the Founder and CEO of Ancova Capital realized that current fund offerings did not have a satisfactory return profile. In the opinion of Eva Maria Kullmann – the perfect time to disrupt traditional asset management industry.
Her vision was to create an investment management platform which offers qualified investors, experienced risk takers and successful entrepreneurs a proposition far beyond the traditional private banking platform, driven by the newest tech and artificial intelligence.
By maintaining a highly selective acceptance process within the asset management platform, whilst limiting the capital under management to 4 billion dollars per sub-fund, the objective is to remain an elite niche player which can sustain its title as best performing Quant-driven fund.
“At Ancova we are proud of our achievements- we are small, yet mighty. It is imperative for us to stay a research and development focused boutique manager, a team headed by scientist who search for solutions in first instance, that as a reaction create value and generate wealth for our investors who appreciate our deeply mathematical approach.”, Eva Maria Kullmann.
The investment team, headed by Co-founder Ronnie Chowdhury, is comprised of top quant professionals (former Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Barclays Capital and Goldman Sachs) which invent and innovate the most disruptive tech-based trading approaches across different asset classes, bringing systematic investing into the 21st century with the power of Artificial Intelligence and high-performance engineering.
Closing the year 2022, returning 14% on the S&P which lost 20% in the same year implies that Ancova Capital is well equipped for current industry challenges.
“Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the future of investment management, and at Ancova Capital Management we believe that our approach to data-driven investment strategies will deliver sustainable exceptional returns for our investors.”, Ronnie Chowdury.
As disruptive asset management continues to shape the future of investing, the rise of female founders like Eva Maria Kullmann and the team at Ancova Capital Management bring a unique and innovative approach to the industry. With a focus on tech-based trading approaches, artificial intelligence, and a highly selective acceptance process, Ancova is setting the bar high for the best-performing Quant-driven fund. As the industry evolves, it is clear that the future is female, and Ancova is leading the way.
