Today, Acuiti publishes the inaugural Systematic Hedge Fund Management Insight Report, in association with HKEX.
As with our publications for crypto derivatives, sell-side clearing and proprietary trading, this quarterly report is produced by surveying our Systematic Hedge Fund Expert Network and provides a view into main operational challenges faced by systematic hedge funds.

- New staff will be dominated by developers and trading hires
