RCM is an alternative asset manager that targets consistent long-term returns for our investors within a well-defined risk framework. We currently manage approximately $15.5 billion. RCM is predominantly active in global macro strategies and focusses on macro asset classes in developed and emerging markets. The investor base is institutional in nature and diversified by investor type and by geography.
Effective risk management is at the heart of our business. Our CIO, Chris Rokos, heads a small group of experienced Investment Officers with complementary, intersecting skillsets seeking to take controlled risk on an opportunistic basis. Our investment process is supported by economic research and quantitative analysis to capture and organise data, inform and improve decision making, and maximise efficiency of trade expression. We have a preference for derivative products that allow precise expression of views, analytically defined downside, and convex upside. Technology and automation are a focus across the firm

We’ll develop you by trusting you, giving you exacting standards, as well as access to the people and experiences that will help you succeed. You will never be on your own: teamwork and collaboration are at the heart of what we do.
In making decisions, we don’t take the easy route, but the right one. We explore ‘what if scenarios and interrogate them with rigour and clarity. We are constantly evolving and building exponentially on our success. It may not be easy, but it is fulfilling. Even within a short space of time you will have achieved and grown more than you could have imagined. With the foundations of an established business, an entrepreneurial spirit and belief in the future: there’s never been a better time to join RCM.
