1859 Capital is a hedge fund based in London. Our investment strategy stems from an online investment platform, 1859 Cloud, where buy-side investment managers can recommend global macro trade ideas. Our goal is to capture the collective intelligence of this platform to build a diversified portfolio. We are at the crossroads between discretionary and systematic as our model is systematic but the strategies feeding it are by design discretionary.
