SPQI is an affiliate of Sterling Partners (“Sterling”), a diversified investment management firm based in Chicago.

The Equity Market Neutral Strategy employs a diversified, market neutral, long-short equity strategy and uses systematic, quantitative methods to extract edge that is rooted in companies’ financial fundamentals.

The strategy is led by Chief Investment Officer Chris Dardanes, Chief Operating Officer Michael Schmitt, and Director of Research Alexander Pasman, who have previously managed various investment strategies at leading firms including UBS O’Connor, Van Buren Advisors and Citadel.
