In Theory, there is no difference
between Theory and Practice.
In Practice, there is.

Emphasis is on the development of quantitative and algorithmic trading strategies and their application in proprietary trading and on professional trading platforms. In addition, the company analyzes funds and strategies in the alternative investment segment.

In addition to its own resources Panathea can access an extensive network of business partners for various projects. Extensive experience in the capital markets from leading investment houses in Frankfurt, Paris, London and Zurich is combined with specific expertise in derivatives trading as well as in quantitative modeling and analysis.


The trading strategies developed and operated by Panathea employ liquid Options and Futures contracts on equity indices, fixed income instruments and currencies, and use proprietary quantitative allocation, risk management and optimization techniques. The objective is to achieve the most market-independent and long-term uncorrelated income.

In addition, Panathea analyzes absolute return trading strategies or strategy-elements such as hedging tools and risk control components. Panathea differentiates itself from traditional considerations by abandoning the production of classical indicators and emphasizing alternative statistical methods.
