Shamir Pandya - Head of Trading
Shamir takes responsibility for trading throughout the day and leads the Cambridge trading team. While most trades at GAM Systematic Cambridge are executed through our proprietary algorithms, Shamir’s team’s focus is on those markets which still require manual trading, such as EM markets and OTC asset classes. The team also works with GAM Systematic Cambridge’s scientists to further advance and automate trading and create trading algorithms on the existing markets, develop ideas relating to new markets and trading capacity. Shamir is also a member of the GAM Global Best-ex Committee. Prior to joining GAM Systematic in 2010, Shamir was a Senior Trader at London Diversified Fund Management, a macro investment house. He began his financial career in 2003 as a trader at Man Investments Products, AHL. Shamir has a BSc in Information Technology and Business Information Systems from Middlesex University.
