What our clients say
We use Craig’s detailed insights into financial markets for our active asset allocation process...his deep understanding of markets and ability to identify inflection points has aided our funds in achieving top quartile returns. Craig is not one to sit on the fence. His ability to analyse outcomes into executable trades is the best we've come across.
As a private client wealth manager with over 20 years’ experience in financial markets I find Antipodean’s research invaluable. Their work around business and investment cycles, both long and short, provides that point of difference that ensures I continue to create wealth for my clients.
HOW WE CAN WORK WITH AND HELP YOU
At Antipodean Capital, what we do for clients depends on what they need. After all, that is what a bespoke, boutique adviser is all about; listening to client issues, coming up with solutions and solving client problems. For the world’s largest hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds, and pension funds, we provide advice on global economics, politics, policy and apply quantitative techniques to predict all major asset markets (stocks, bonds, commodities, foreign exchange, property) so that they can make long term asset allocation decisions.
For family office investors we do the same as well as provide innovative portfolio hedge advice and views on alternative assets. For banks and brokerages, we provide intraday and intraweek advice on their markets of choice. For exporters and importers, we advise them on interest rate and foreign exchange hedging.
