Ox Galton Partners (OGP) was founded in Jersey in 2021 by Frank Fehle and is involved in the production of quantitative trading signals and research for global equity markets. The OGP management team have a long pedigree in quant trading, with over three decades of cross-asset experience from best-in-class hedge funds and proprietary trading desks.
The name Ox Galton derives from a famous statistical experiment in 1907 by scientist and polymath Sir Francis Galton. Galton attended a farmer’s fair and was intrigued by a weight guessing contest for a prize Ox. Over 800 people entered the contest and while none of them guessed exactly the correct weight, when Galton ran statistical analysis on the results, he found that the average guess was almost the exact weight of the Ox. This led to the concept of “Wisdom of Crowds” which inspires Ox Galton’s research philosophy of leveraging and combining numerous data inputs, trading signals, and expert views.
