A Different Approach to Traditional Investing

Crawford Lake Capital manages a trading-oriented long/short equity strategy with the primary objective of investing in equities and options in order to generate strong, risk-adjusted returns over time. The strategy utilizes a hybrid approach to investing, combining both fundamental and technical analysis. The combination of these approaches is intended to produce superior risk adjusted returns, maintain a low volatility profile, and position the strategy to perform well regardless of market conditions.

The firm’s initial management entity was Crawford Lake GP, LLC (the "General Partner"), in its capacity as general partner of the first vehicle to have been managed by the firm. As part of an ongoing institutionalization process, in 2013 Crawford Lake Capital Management, LLC (the “Adviser”) was formed to serve as the investment manager for all firm accounts. At that time, management responsibilities were transferred from the General Partner to the Adviser, though the General Partner continues to serve as general partner to limited partnerships under management by the Adviser. Reference to the operations of the Adviser before 2013 refer to those of the General Partner, and thereafter refer to the operations of both the Adviser and the General Partner. The Adviser and the General Partner changed their names to their current respective names in April 2015.
