Investment Philosophy

Hangala Capital is a quantitative investment manager. At Hangala Capital, we define risk as the probability of not meeting the investment objectives of the client. To this extent, positions taken in portfolios are mathematically tested using different scenarios to determine portfolio outcome. This ensures that positions taken will, on the upside, deliver on client expectation, while at the same time, in down markets, it will not breach the risk objective of the client. The core of Hangala Capital's investment philosophy is capital preservation and the management of downside risk.

Quatplus Process

Hangala Capital's investment philosophy gives rise to a distinctive style, QuantPlus® which defines the investment process that Prescient Investment Management employs. The process is essentially an 'enhanced' benchmark process, with the client's risk limits determining the size of positions taken relative to the risk benchmark. "Quants" refers to the quantitative process where position outcome is tested to ensure that it will meet the client's objectives. "Plus" refers to the process where the enhancements and positions are systematically taken to generate additional performance above the benchmark, while still adhering to the client's risk limits.

Investment Process

Hangala Capital starts by defining a risk benchmark as well as a performance target. The risk benchmark describes the minimum return under adverse market conditions. The portfolio will be structured, i.e. position deviation from the benchmark will match the risk tolerance to ensure that at worst the return will meet the risk or minimum return benchmark. At the same time, should the market condition favour the position direction, the client return will be maximised given the risk tolerance or benchmark.
