Ensemble Capital Showcases Absolute Return AI Hedge Fund And Co-Chairs The GAW Forum in Singapore


Ensemble Capital, an emerging fund management company regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, has announced it has been selected to join the Global Assets and Wealth Initiative (GAW) and showcase its absolute return AI hedge fund at the GAW in Singapore on 31 August and 1 September by Platinum Circle, the world’s leading business group involving corporations with annual revenues exceeding USD100 million, governments and intergovernmental organisations from Asia, Oceania, North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Central and Latin America.

The GAW Initiative’s objective is to drive greater collaboration and cooperation in building future economic, business and social wealth. Within it, Ensemble Capital is an expert voice on the use of artificial intelligence to trade currency and currency derivatives, and sharing its insights through the GAW Initiative, Forums and Workshops.

Ensemble Capital’s Chief Investment Officer, Damien Loh will serve as a Co-Chair for the GAW Forum in Singapore. He will be sharing insights on G10 and emerging Asian currencies and their application to building a quality investment portfolio with over 150 business and government leaders as well as accredited investors and high net worth individuals.

“Markets are dynamic and the relative importance of driving factors in turn change over time as market conditions vary. The extensive use of A.I. and machine learning brings with it a disciplined and quantitative approach to markets. This removes the bulk of the inconsistency, uncertainty and cognitive biases of having a human only strategy,” said Damien.

“We are pleased to add Ensemble Capital to the GAW Initiative as a Showcase Company and Co-Chair the GAW Forum in Singapore,” said Lionel Lee, Chairman of Platinum Circle. “Ensemble Capital represents a new generation of hedge fund from Singapore which uses artificial intelligence to trade currency and currency derivatives and target double-digit net annualized returns would be interesting to our Community’s institutional and accredited investors from the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia who are gathering in Singapore. Its debut in late 2017 with SGD75 million capital from high-net worth investors, family offices and institutional investors is testimony to its value proposition. Damien’s deep experience with exchange option trading from 2002 with JP Morgan will help us understand the best ways to create a performing investment portfolio that leverages currencies”.

Damien added, “We are honored to be selected as the only absolute return AI hedge fund leveraging on artificial intelligence from Singapore to share our insights and business proposition with a diverse group of corporate leaders, family offices, policy makers and high net worth individuals from the Platinum Circle Community. We are also excited to be part of the closed-door Forum and a global peer group who are pro-business and keen on building economic, business, social and private assets.
