DIGITAL's name has changed; the new name for the investment advisor of the SICAV Digital Funds is CHAHINE CAPITAL.

In 1988, Jacques Chahine created JCF Group (Jacques Chahine Finance). The group's first quantitative models were applied successfully from 1991 onwards, in collaboration with its financial partners. The Luxembourg Sicav Digital Funds was set up in 1998 in order to promote the use of quantitative models within the asset management industry. The launch of the Digital Stars Europe sub-fund highlighted this strategy. Originally intended as an experiment aimed at improving the JCF platform, the fund performed so well that in 2004, when JCF Group was sold to FactSet, Jacques Chahine decided to devote himself to it full-time in association with fund manager Julien Bernier. The constitution of a pan-European marketing team in 2005 and strong fund performance have produced a considerable rise in assets under management.

J. Chahine Capital Group is dedicated exclusively to model-based, quantitative asset management, where each and every development is subjected to rigorous back-testing over at least twelve years’ worth of data. Their objective is to beat the benchmarks for each of the products, and even the most sceptical investors are forced to admit that their results are often better than the back-testing suggests. Few quantitative managers can boast as much rigour in the execution of their investment strategies.

J. Chahine Capital Group combines the talents of top-level mathematicians and IT experts in its management team. All are finance specialists and are thoroughly familiar with the best analytical tools. Most of their time is spent on Research and Development.  Digital funds are regularly ranked top of their categories over the medium and long term and have received Standard and Poor’s first prize for European offshore funds.
