The LQG is very pleased that Dr Chris Longworth a Senior Scientist in GAM Systematic’s CANTAB will present the March LQG ENCORE seminar and will discuss the challenges of “alternative” markets and “esoteric” assets.

Since joining GAM in 2010, Chris’s focus has been on the development and improvement of investment strategies. He led the expansion of Cantab’s tradable universe into new and unconventional markets and is responsible for the portfolio construction techniques used within GAM Systematic Discovery for trading exotic or less liquid assets. Chris was instrumental in the creation of Discovery and leads its continuous research effort. Prior to joining Cantab, Chris was part of the Machine Intelligence Laboratory at Cambridge University, where he obtained MPhil and PhD degrees. He also holds a BSc in Computer Science from Royal Holloway, University of London. He is based in Cambridge.
