Fund Strategy

The HCP Quant fund uses quantitative methods to pick stocks. The fund invests globally in emerging and developed markets, in small and mid-size companies. The fund selects the best from tens of thousands of companies, investing in companies that are undervalued based on several objective measures. This kind of systematic quantitative investing method has been proven to beat the market in the long run.

I am the author of one of the most popular investing blogs in Finland. In 2011 and 2014, Cision, which is a leading global provider of media solutions, ranked my blog “Kohti taloudellista riippumattomuutta” (Towards financial independence) as the second most popular economics blog in Finland.
