More Than Just A Fund, Where Culture & Values Make an Impact with Kapil Rastogi of PlusPlus Capital

Kapil Rastogi is the managing partner and co-founder of PlusPlus Capital Management, a quantitative trading firm focused on trading futures and options on futures around the globe.

“I was a Mathematics and Computer Science graduate from MIT. In 2003, I started working at Merrill Lynch investment management in the risk department, and then worked for R.G. Niederhoffer Capital Management as a European execution trader and worked my way up to being a senior quant trader.

My passion is both investing in finance and investing in people. I established PlusPlus with the vision of creating a firm that is great at what it does. Our value proposition is embedded in the name of our firm. The first plus means that we offer a very high risk-adjusted return relative to the peer group. The second plus means that we offer a completely uncorrelated return stream with all major asset classes and our peers in the CTA universe. We follow a commitment culture where we look out for the long-term interests of our employees rather than viewing them as short-term profit vehicles. And ultimately, in the long run, that kind of yields the best results. Of course, we still have a lot more work to do, but definitely, our vision thus far has come to fruition.

Aside from managing the fund, I also make time to do mentorship. I share my knowledge and wisdom through seminars and talks about how the business world works and how you rise in the industry. It's been very rewarding to make a difference in many of these people's lives.”
