Wayne Himelsein founded Logica Capital Advisers in 2011 and serves as chief investment officer. He is responsible for leading portfolio management and the overall implementation of the firm’s investment strategies. Himelsein is also a member of the Investment Committee and Risk Committee. Beginning his career as a proprietary trader in 1995 and launching his first hedge fund in 2000, Himelsein has over 25 years of industry experience.
Throughout his career, he has continued to develop, evolve, and refine his quantitative trading, risk, and portfolio-management processes. Beginning in 2011, Himelsein and his team conducted four years of research and development to solve the problem of pervasive negative skewness inherent in hedge funds, with a quest to produce absolute returns regardless of market regime or stress, which today serves as the basis of the Logica strategies.
