Capturing the unique characteristics of hedge fund investing, Optima seeks to construct multi-manager hedge fund programs designed to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns with significant downside protection and low correlation to equity and fixed income markets. Key to the process is: 1) robust manager due diligence, 2) selecting complementary managers considering correlations and volatilities, 3) top-down asset allocation, 4) ongoing risk management and manager monitoring. Optima currently offers commingled funds in several strategies including:

  • Long/Short Equity FOFsSince 1988
  • Global Macro FOFsSince 1991
  • Multi-Strategy FOFsSince 1999


Since 1991, Optima has been designing and implementing customized multi-manager programs tailored to the specific objectives and constraints of our larger institutional clients. Optima currently manages dedicated long/short equity, discretionary macro, CTA/tactical trading, and multi-strategy programs on behalf of our institutional clients.


Optima has partnered in sub-advisory relationships with several world-class hedge fund managers who we believe each offer a distinctive and unique investment expertise along with strong track records and outstanding manager pedigree. Optima serves as sponsor, and provides legal, administrative, risk management, reporting, proprietary technology and marketing support. These partnerships allow each manager to leverage Optima’s global distribution channels. 


Optima offers liquid alternatives in a UCITS structure across several different strategies.

"We add value on so many levels - our experience ... our knowledge ... the products we offer. Every one at Optima is intensely proud of the company we have built."
