Who We Are

Our mission is to be the most impactful options and futures team for our clients.

Lake Hill was founded and is managed by industry leaders with and extensive experience through many market cycles. The Lake Hill management team previously held senior roles at Salomon Brothers, Goldman Sachs, Citibank, Bank of America, Bloomberg, and more. We seek the most talented minds in the derivatives markets to identify and capture new opportunities. Our world-class global team brings together the art and science of investing while being on the forefront of technology.

Lake Hill Approach

To succeed with options over time, one must uniquely have both deep industry experience and the ability to execute strategies in a disciplined manner. To minimize the effects of human emotion and human error, we utilize modern technology in almost every aspect of the investment process. This allows us to make decisions based on information supported by statistical and empirical evidence while minimizing operational risk.

Lake Hill prefers strategies with longer time horizons because it allows the law of large numbers to work in our favor. In order to successfully monetize the "edge" that arises from risk transfer activity, we typically transact repeatedly over a period of years, not weeks or months. We may also invest for the shorter term when unique opportunities are created due to market stress or extreme dislocations.

Having an edge is merely one element of success. To realize the edge, one must follow a rigorous process over time, reduce human emotion while being flexible to new insights. Our technology, automation, and discipline enable us to provide our clients with dynamic portfolio management that strives to continuously improve and evolve as market conditions change.
