Our Values

We believe that the power of many minds working together across verticals can result in more innovation, increased stability, and greater accountability.

Non-Traditional Thinking

We are a team whose members all share the one unifying trait of coming into finance from non-traditional backgrounds. From skilled game playing to engineering to physics and actuarial science, our team looks at finance through a different lens, and we seek to leverage that difference in perspective in our approach to the markets.

Intellectual Rigor

At all stages of the research process, from initial idea generation to the final backtest, we try our hardest to prove ourselves wrong. We believe that this tough filter of skepticism ultimately results in a hardier strategy set overall. We have high conviction in what ultimately makes it through, but even after new strategies are incorporated, we are constantly on the lookout for decay or underperformance.

Collaboration

We believe that the power of many minds working together across verticals can result in more innovation, increased stability, and greater accountability. The firm utilizes a team-based approach to portfolio management that does not revolve around any one individual.

Transparency

While we keep our secret sauce close to the chest, we strive at every level of conversation to be as transparent as possible in order to help our investors gain clarity and understanding of our approach. Along with being able to view historical performance on our investor portal, we give our investors the power to view frequently updated information, and make ourselves available.

Longevity

We have been around since 2006 and love what we do. We hope to do it for a long time to come, and that desire is built into decision-making around all aspects of the business. We were founded in 2006 by industry outsiders who were successful advantage blackjack and poker players, and who imagined that there might be an opportunity to apply the methodology successfully deployed in the casinos over to the liquid markets. Over 11 years later, Landscape is still seeking to innovate using the same philosophy, now with an expanded team, robust risk management, strong and sophisticated operational infrastructure, and over a decade of experience in hedge funds.
