Different by design.

Capstone is a global, alternative investment management firm operating across a broad range of derivatives-based strategies with a deep understanding of volatility. With approximately $8.8 billion of AUM and 205 employees (as of October 1, 2021), Capstone was formed in 2007 and is headquartered in New York with offices in London, Amsterdam, Stamford, and Los Angeles. Through strategic insight, market-leading expertise and advanced technology, we seek to anticipate and harness the complexities of world markets, creating unique opportunities for our clients, team and industry.

“To perform consistently demands the best- informed estimate of volatility and having the humility to acknowledge that it is always an estimate and to size positions accordingly. Over many years and market regimes, we’ve painstakingly developed the team and a very focused and scalable technology infrastructure to put us in a position to be able to perform on a regular and repeatable basis.”

— Paul Britton, Chief Executive Officer
