Our Origins

The founder of Zen Capital Management, Gregory Carroll, first developed an interest in market cycles through studying the pioneering work of the late Ian S Notley. Notley developed his approach over 40 years and his system is currently utilised by over 150 institutional investment managers in 14 countries around the world.

Notley's work was truly revolutionary and influenced a great many investment managers. After the "tech wreck" of 2000, one of George Soros's four personal fund managers professes to have "dodged the bullet of over enthusiastic technology investing" as a direct result of adopting Notley''s approach.

A decade ago Gregory Carroll began studying Notley's approach. Over a period of many years and thousands of hours research, Greg developed his own cyclic analysis system and incorporated a comprehensive risk and portfolio management framework. Thus Zen Capital Management's systems are comprehensive, unique and proprietary.

Through the Credit Crisis of 2008, Greg used his system to deliver positive returns for his investment clients. Thus the system has been tested under the most difficult of conditions. However, market conditions are always changing and past performance is no indication of future performance.
