The firm’s competitive edge is its agility and focus on tactical, catalyst-driven trading opportunities. This focus, which includes isolating investment anomalies identified in academic literature as well as those discovered by practitioners, has enabled Haidar to capture alpha over full market cycles.

Haidar Capital targets absolute returns, with an asymmetric upside and little or no correlation to systematic risk factors. The firm’s global macro fund achieves this by identifying repeatable trades around various financial market events, including government bond auctions and syndications, month-end bond index extensions, and foreign exchange movements driven by changing interest rate differentials.
