Coober Fund

Investment company

Introduction

Coober fund is a proprietary trading company that specializes in quantitative methods and strategies. Coober is dedicated to producing superior risk-adjusted returns. Founded in 2010, the firm develops proprietary trading algorithms by using statistical methodology to identify non-random patterns in behaviors of markets. Exploiting these inefficiencies allows to earn exceptional returns while mitigating a risk. We trade across major asset classes including equities, equity indices and commodities in United States and Europe.

About Us

Evaluation of risk is crucial part of daily business. We prefer consistency rather than absolute return. Coober has developed internal metrics in order to quantify risk and also to be able to automatically reduce taken risk. On the other hand, risk taking process is not purely automatic and we consider all possible scenarios on intraday basis.

Our fund is diversified across strategies and asset classes. By diversified approach is primarily meant a pursuit of stability and low correlation to US equity market. The main exposure is taken through futures and options contracts. We believe that diversification should be ensured not only involving different assets but mainly through different types of trading strategies. That’s why Coober employs a trend following strategies in conjunction with contrarian approach.

In our young collective we supports either individual development with team work abilities. Our high standard demands selective approach through entire work process. Coober’s team consists of traders, risk-managers, strategy developers and programmers. This diversity through different fields allows plentiful and innovative approach towards trading. Common goal isn’t only to profit but also to outperform.
