Our mission at NUMERI (pronounced “NOO’ - mare - ee”) is to help investors better protect and grow their wealth by overcoming the shortcomings of traditional portfolio diversification. We do so through the application of an automated, intraday investment process that utilizes proprietary investment techniques which have been developed and refined over the past 10 years through live trading by the company’s principals.
By focusing on “intraday” investments, NUMERI avoids the risks of unexpected, overnight shocks to the financial markets and offers the opportunity to achieve positive uncorrelated returns, regardless of the direction of the broader markets.
NUMERI Capital Management, Inc. is located in Cary, North Carolina and was established in 2018. The company is registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission as a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) and is a member of the National Futures Association (NFA member ID: 0512355).
(Etymology: The word Numeri is Latin for “numbers” and is also a term used to describe Roman army units. Numeri is pronounced “NOO’ - mare - ee.”)
Utilizing proprietary intraday forecasting techniques, our quantitative and automated program systematically attempts to exploit temporary price anomalies that occur almost daily in the equity and bond futures markets.
NUMERI leverages three separate investment methodologies using sophisticated execution software in an attempt to profit from these potential mis-pricing opportunities. This diversification within the program allows us to attack potential pricing anomalies from multiple angles, while promoting a more stable and consistent return stream.
Investor emotions and potential market mispricings are often greatest when the financial markets are under pressure and declining. As a result, NUMERI typically excels when traditional asset classes, as well as trend following programs, struggle.
Clients may invest in the program with the control and convenience of a separately managed account.
