IStar Capital B.V. is an Amsterdam based asset management company established by two former traders from AIG Financial Products. The company has a fully systematic (CTA / Managed Futures style) investment strategy in commodities, financial futures and emerging market currencies that relies on behavioral economics research and the extensive experience of the principals. This alternative investment strategy is intended for qualified institutional and high net worth investors, in particular those who are looking for diversification away from the traditional equity markets.

In May 2011, IStar Capital signed a seed investment deal with IMQubator, the hedge fund seeding platform backed by APG. IMQubator has committed $ 35mln to the IStar Systematic Fund, a sub-fund of the Luxembourg based Privium Selection Fund SCA SICAV-SIF. The sub-fund was launched in September 2011 and IStar Capital is the exclusive investment advisor. The name “ISTAR” is derived from the initials of the shareholders (IMQubator, Shally, Thomas, Artarit, Rudolph).

IStar Capital utilizes multiple layers of risk controls – the middle office function is delegated to an independent company - Darwin Platform. The regulatory aspects of the business are facilitated by Privium Fund Management (a firm that is authorized and regulated by the FCA in the UK and by the AFM in the Netherlands). The main office of the company is located in the (former) Holland Financial Center in close proximity to several stakeholders in the business. All this leaves the principals the opportunity to maintain an edge in the efficient execution of the strategy and further market research.
