BlueCrest Capital Management

Company Details

BlueCrest Capital Management LLP ("BCM LLP") is an alternative Asset Management company based in Guernsey, managing significant institutional assets across a number of diversified strategies. The two founders of BCM LLP, Michael Platt and William Reeves (now retired), were both Managing Directors and senior proprietary traders at JP Morgan, who left to establish BlueCrest in 2000. BCMLLP is fully owned by its principals.

BCM LLP has also established five sub-investment managers: (1) BlueCrest Capital Management (UK) LLP, (2) BlueCrest Capital Management Guernsey L.P. (acting through its Geneva branch), (3) BlueCrest Capital Management (Singapore) Pte. Ltd, (4) BlueCrest Capital Management (New York) LP and (5) BlueCrest Capital Management (Boston) L.P.. Each of these sub-investment managers has been appointed by BCM LLP to manage the assets of one or more of the BlueCrest funds in BCM LLP's place, each as an agent of the relevant fund(s).

Since its inception, BlueCrest's objective has been to construct a trading infrastructure of investment bank quality, upon which trading teams can be built and new strategies developed. BlueCrest believes in a specialist model. It employs teams of market specialists across numerous disciplines, all operating with state-of-the-art proprietary analytical technology. This specialist structure encourages broader overall portfolios with significantly less concentrated risk and can allow the portfolio managers to focus on smaller, more esoteric anomalies that are often overlooked.
