5 Things you need to know about Saemor

Team

Stable team with institutional backing

Saemor Capital is a specialist in quantitative investment management, focused on absolute return generation. The company was founded in 2008 with the backing of insurance company AEGON as a cornerstone investor. The team consists of award-winning equity managers with vast experience in European equities. The majority of the investment team have worked together for over 8 years

Strategy

Systematic equity strategy

The backbone of the strategy is a dynamic multi-factor model using fundamental and technical factors. Several enhancements were added blending qualitative insights in the model:

  1. we designed the model to be adaptive to both the equity market and the macro environment: we know that in a recession other stocks are attractive than in a bull market.
  2. we avoid or limit stocks where other things than our model drive performance, like M&A candidates.

Our edge is to define and combine fundamental quantitative factors better than our competitors.
