The winning strategy is an event-driven strategy developed by New Capital’s strategy team. The strategy is the only one in the world and the first to invest in SPAC with an event-driven quantitative strategy that has generated a cumulative return of 135% over the past year.
New Capital, founded in 2015, is an asset management firm engaged in real estate investment, quantitative strategy incubation and development, and SPAC investment.
