Headquartered in New York City, Quay Capital LLC provides tactical investment management solutions to accredited private investors and institutions across the country. Quay Capital deploys concentrated investment vehicles aiming to achieve excess returns while utilizing a systematic approach to risk management to ensure capital preservation and attractive risk adjusted returns. Managing Partner, Erick Quay, has spent his entire career in financial services and investing.
Quay Capital is the byproduct of Mr. Quay’s work at major firms: J.P. Morgan, the world’s largest bank, and Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund. These large institutionalized firms have provided Erick with a robust tool-belt of technical skills and expertise to systematically structure, manage risk, and operate various investments. Over his career, Mr. Quay’s interests increasingly began to shift away from traditional liquid financial products to more esoteric and concentrated opportunities that may offer excess return potential over traditional assets. Quay Capital expands on Erick’s focus on tactical, thematic investments in an investment management firm that can provide sophisticated investors with innovative investment solutions and strategic advice.
Quay Capital was created to serve our clients based on the following important principles:
Integrity: By regulation, we have a fiduciary duty to our clients. In our view integrity goes far beyond this to include earning our clients trust. We will work diligently to create clear expectations, educate clients on our strategies and communicate outcomes.
Intelligence: Intelligent investing is a systematic approach combining robust research and proven strategies with a careful assessment of client needs and risk tolerance. In our view, intelligent investing means bringing institutional quality products to new opportunity areas via constant innovation.
Independence: We are not subject to the control or influence of anyone but our clients. Given our size and goals, we focus on finding the highest potential returning investments for any given risk level. We aim to create products in previously uncharted areas.
Erick began his career at J.P. Morgan where he covered a range of functions within the Asset Management branch. While at J.P.
