Rhicon Currency Management brings the benefits of the global foreign exchange markets to investors through the application of solid and sustainable trading strategies that have been developed, refined and proven over many years. Founded in 2000 by its three principals, Peter Jacobson, Christopher Brandon and Ryan McLaughlin, the firm was established to develop and capitalize on their trading and risk management skills. Rhicon was initially set up in Singapore and has subsequently established itself in London and Geneva.
Rhicon applies technical trading methodologies to the foreign exchange markets via its various programs that combine the benefits of a momentum based commodity trading advisor with the flexibility of a traditional global macro fund.
The firm's investment philosophy is characterized by an emphasis on technical analysis and a rigorous and consistent approach to risk management. This helps to ensure a high reward/risk ratio and minimize losses on any given trade. Strict discipline in the application of trade ideas provides the key to successful money management. The team's methodologies were formulated out of extensive experience gained in some of the world's premier trading environments and have been successfully applied on a private trading basis.
The Rhicon team believes that the key to its success is its integrated and experienced team and a robust infrastructure. Rhicon has all aspects of exceptional management personnel: pedigree, expertise, and long-standing close working relationships. The investment managers have over 40 years' foreign exchange trading experience between them, both at investment banks and on the asset management side. Rhicon has built and developed a robust trading platform, with a proprietary operations system, run by an experienced execution and back office team in Singapore. They are further supported by a business development manager in London. The investments in its personnel and infrastructure reflect Rhicon's ongoing commitment to building a first class alternative asset management firm.
