Palomar Fund operates a systematic quantitative futures strategy with a track record of stable positive returns with low volatility and a low correlation to hedge fund and market benchmarks.


Our core investment philosophy is that strategies should be built around persistent and understandable investor behaviours.   Palomar aims to provide investors with steady returns that are uncorrelated to the markets we invest in and to competing hedge funds.  Palomar’s strategy is driven by statistically significant anomalies and price behaviors that recur over time, enabling us to produce consistent performance across market conditions.
