C Suisse said to start two hedge funds focussed on quantitative strategies

Credit Suisse Tower

Credit Suisse is starting two hedge funds focused on quantitative strategies as part of a broader effort to build the bank’s asset management unit, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

Bloomberg News reports that the two funds, Qube and QT, are comprised of existing London and teams from Credit Suisse’s Systematic Market-Making Group that had been housed within the investment bank, said the person, who asked not to be named because the matter is private.

The business functioned as a proprietary arbitrage trading unit - making bets with the bank’s own money - until it was restructured after the financial crisis to comply with the Volcker rule, which bars that type of trading.
