Symmetry is a global investment company with offices in Hong Kong and London. We have been in business since 2014 after successfully spinning off from a major New York-based hedge fund. Currently we have about 95 full time employees and manage approximately US$3.6 billion of capital. At Symmetry Investments, we seek to engage in intelligent risk-taking to create value for our clients, partners and employees. We derive our edge from our capacity to generate Win-Wins – in the broadest sense. Win-Win is our fundamental ethical and strategic principle. By generating Win-Wins, we can create unique solutions that reconcile perspectives that are usually seen as incompatible or opposites, and encompass the best that each side has to offer.
- We integrate fixed-income arbitrage with global macro strategies in a novel way.
- We invent and develop technology that focuses on the potential of human-machine integration.
- We build systems where machines do what they do best, supporting people to do what people do best.
- We are creating a collaborative meritocracy: a culture where individual contribution serves both personal and collective goals - and is rewarded accordingly.
- We value both ownership thinking AND cooperative team spirit, self-realization AND community.
