I'm creating this blog for the purpose of documenting the real world performance of the new Mercury Global Holdings Quantitative Value strategy. Ultimately, I intend to use this blog as a marketing tool for the purpose of raising seed capital to implement this strategy in fund form. Primarily I will post the model suggested holdings of the strategy, portfolio management decision making, and risk management activities. The challenge for the Quantitative Hedge Fund Manager is to be as transparent with investors as possible, while keeping the proprietary aspects of the strategy that are key to it's future profitability a secret. There fore, the ultimate goal for this blog is to facilitate this process, while establishing a real world track record of success.
