Gulamabbas founded Providentia Capital LLP in London in 2004, and built a team of experienced professionals to provide global tactical asset allocation and risk management services to institutions ranging from large asset managers, to hedge funds and family offices. In response to client requests, he established Providentia Analytics Ltd, a specialist advisory service based in Oxford, providing a suite of proprietary ‘big data’ models for identifying alpha from market dislocations, together with risk analysis based on quality of diversification.
Prior to establishing the Providentia group, Gulamabbas was at Baring Asset Management from 1998 in London and Boston, focussing on quantitative asset allocation, economics and global investment strategy. Gulamabbas is actively engaged in academia, teaching at the University of Oxford, where he has undertaken a doctorate and served as Graduate Ambassador. In addition, he holds four masters’ degrees and has been awarded the Chartered Financial Analyst and MSTA designations (with distinction). He shares his experience at conferences and lectures globally.
