J. CHAHINE CAPITAL

 

CHAHINE CAPITAL is an asset management company based in Luxembourg, subsidiary of the group Iris Finance International.

 

Jacques Chahine, the founder and investment advisor of the SICAV Digital Funds, set up in Luxembourg in 1998, gave his name to CHAHINE CAPITAL. He also created the JCF Group, well known by investors for its market consensus.

CHAHINE CAPITAL has a most specific area of expertise: modeled quantitative techniques applied to “long only” stock strategies as well as ‘long-short” hedge stock strategies. The goal is to outperform the benchmark of any products in its range.

Each development of the applied models is subject to a rigorous back-testing of 10 years minimum (in this way, investors note that reality is often better than the back-testing)

Few quantitative managements could demonstrate such a rigorous process in the investment strategies execution.

CHAHINE CAPITAL is composed of a high-level team of mathematicians and programmers who completely understand the financial world, have expert knowledge of the best relevant tools and spend the largest part of their time doing research and development.
