Ostrica started managing assets in 1998 as United Asset Management start-up in The Netherlands. In the early years we worked closely within the UAM group of companies with Acadian Asset management and were advised by Harry Markowitz (Nobel Prize Laureate, 1990). Ostrica developed itself as a full range of investment solutions provider operating in the Benelux and expanding into Switzerland. The company is owned by its founders and senior employees.
Ostrica integrates state of the art quantitative techniques and human input into investment strategies.
The word Ostrica, meaning Oyster, describes the strength of the Investment concept that already has given shelter to Ostrica investors for more than 25 years. At Ostrica, we use global financial data of all liquid stocks and bonds into investment strategies that deliver superior risk-return profiles.
Ostrica investment philosophy is built around the premise that the right combination of ‘man’ & ‘machine’ help navigate investors through the stormy winds of financial markets. “Computers are incredibly fast, accurate & stupid. Man is unbelievably slow, inaccurate and brilliant. The combination of the two creates opportunities beyond imagination.”- Einstein-
Ostrica regards a structured and innovative investment process as the most important condition in asset management and investment solutions.
Only a clear, well-organised and disciplined process leads to consistent, optimised returns. In the complex financial markets of today, only the investors, who are able to filter the relevant information from available data and transform it into investment policy, can successfully refine their portfolios to new trends and developments.
