Welcome to Tradex Global Advisors

Tradex Global Advisors focuses on identifying and analyzing, both from an investment and operational perspective, unique hedge fund strategies that either demonstrate quality and sustainable returns or offer unique, asymmetric return opportunities. 

We tend to find the most value and specialize in the analysis of niche, alpha producing hedge fund strategies. Tradex and its Principals have extensive hedge fund investment experience, having made more than 500 hedge fund allocations over the years, as well as operating direct hedge fund products. The team's familiarity with and understanding of many different trading strategies allow it to recognize and differentiate quality, sustainable and alpha-centric hedge fund strategies and traders from their beta-driven counterparts.

Originally, the Tradex Currency Fund was founded in 1998 by Rony Schläpfer. In 2004, along with partners Michael Beattie and Richard Travia, the firm launched Tradex Global Advisors as a research oriented hedge fund advisory company to manage niche-focused hedge funds and portfolios of hedge funds. Based in Greenwich, Connecticut, Tradex Global's managing partners are Michael Beattie, Richard Travia and Jeff Kong.


Welcome to Tradex Global Advisory Services

Tradex Global Advisory Services focuses on managing multi-strategy structured product portfolios that are strictly risk-controlled and target absolute returns. We focus on identifying mispriced securities with attractive risk and reward profiles under various interest rate and spread scenarios.   

We utilize a bottom-up approach to identify and analyze specific opportunities in the alternative fixed-income markets. The team has deep experience in these markets, and has historically been able to minimize volatility and maintain low correlation to more traditional asset classes by generating true alpha. 

Tradex Global Advisory Services is a minority owned firm founded by Jeff Kong and Tradex Global Advisors in July 2014 to manage the multi-strategy alternative fixed-income business. Jeff Kong has a longstanding relationship with Michael Beattie and Richard Travia. The firm is based in Greenwich, Connecticut.
