Tristan Edwards

Senior Trading Mentor

Tristan has over 15 years’ experience as a Professional Trader. After graduating with a degree in Commerce from the University of Tasmania in 1996, Tristan joined the Commonwealth Department of Finance as part of their 1997 graduate program working on the Australian Commonwealth National Budget.  He soon moved to the private sector and started his career in trading with Goldman Sachs in Melbourne as an Institutional Equities Trader before moving to Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) as an Equity Analyst and Equity Trader.

After five years at Goldman, Tristan moved to London to work for the Global Macro Hedge Fund Brevan Howard, running their Trading Desk. In this position Tristan was trading all markets and all listed products across all time zones. His focus for this period was largely FOREX and Bonds, as part of a wider remit which included trading everything from soft commodity futures to mortgage backed securities.

During his time at Brevan Howard, Assets Under Management (AUM) grew from $2Bln to an astonishing $25Bln. Now with $40bln AUM, Brevan is one of the world’s largest Hedge Funds. After three years at Brevan, Tristan joined the Hedge Fund Trafalgar Capital as their Asian Portfolio Manager, and was responsible for their $100m Asian Long/Short portfolio, spending his last year with Trafalgar in Hong Kong.

After four successful years at Trafalgar Capital, and posting consecutive double digit returns during the Global Financial Crisis in 2008-2009 (a feat achieved by less than 1% of global managers at the time), Tristan raised $100mln from external investors to set up Mosaic Asset Management, his own fund out of Singapore. Mosaic was one of the largest Hedge Fund start up raises of the year in Singapore in 2012. Now in retirement, Tristan works part time for the Institute and consults to Australian and Asian based Hedge Funds out of Sydney where he now resides with his family.

Tristan’s role at the Institute involves Mentoring Institute Traders on the official Institute Mentoring Programme helping them to realise their objectives in becoming consistently profitable long-term and to help build their track records. Tristan also helps manage the Institute’s global portfolio in allocating capital to profitable students/traders.
