Wayne Himelsein - President and Chief Investment Officer
As a 20+ year veteran of the securities industry, Mr. Himelsein (a UC Berkeley alum), founded Logica Capital Advisers (“Logica”), and currently serves as its President and Chief Investment Officer. In this capacity, he heads the portfolio management team, and is a member of both the investment and risk committees.
Wayne began his career in 1995 as a proprietary trader at the Carlin Financial Group (acquired by RBC Capital Markets). Following his success there, Wayne launched his first hedge fund in 1999, and went on to manage money for private clients and major institutions such as Hyundai Securities and Millennium. In a strategy he later developed in 2005, he ran over 300 mm of private and institutional capital.
Throughout his career, Wayne has continued to develop, evolve and refine his quantitative trading and portfolio management models. Most recently, beginning in 2011, Wayne and his team conducted 4 years of R&D to solve the problems inherent in HF’s quest to produce absolute returns regardless of market regime, which serve as the basis of the Logica Fund.
Wayne is a holder of a FINRA series 65 license and currently resides in Santa Monica, CA.
