At Campbell & Company, our investors and our people are our priority. Our investment-related personnel, accounting for more than 2/3 of total employees, includes 20+ PhD's. Employees are hired from Wall Street and beyond, to provide for greater diversity of thought.
Our culture encourages creativity, productivity, and loyalty – key qualities that we seek in our business partners, and that we credit to our success.
Campbell & Company is driven by a large infrastructure, which is why the value of the firm sits squarely at the entity level. This reflects both our distinctive difference and our core strength.
Our culture supports diverse thinking and information sharing across every department. Talent, experience, and knowledge are nurtured and cultivated throughout the organization.
At Campbell & Company, the models are the portfolio managers. Behind each model are several layers of thought leaders, building a process that can be repeated and implemented systematically. Each development team is populated with mathematicians, scientists, economists, and engineers, all charged with a single mission: to build a model that exploits a unique investment thesis and a persistent alpha source.
New investment ideas are encouraged and free flowing, while they are also rigorously challenged by multiple stages of peer review. Enhancements to existing models must be vetted and approved through the same process as any new model being introduced.
While Research and Information Technology are at the core of our ability to make sound investment decisions for our clients, control of execution costs is vital. The Trading Department is charged with executing orders as determined by the models. Multiple factors, including market liquidity, systematically drive the allocation of orders to our electronic trading platforms and to our value-added traders, who have in-depth knowledge of market timing and behavior. Connectivity, efficiency, and order completion are monitored around the clock during the Asian, European, and North American trading sessions.
The engine that drives innovation and enhances consistency is Information Technology. In order to identify investment opportunities, and to measure and manage risk, Campbell & Company invests heavily in state-of-the-art technologies.
Our Information Technology team supports, facilitates, and protects every facet of the Campbell & Company organization, from our 24-hour trading activities to our Disaster Recovery site.
