Our History

Albert Richards and Brian Thomson were assigned to the same office space on their first day in the Chemical Engineering PhD program at MIT. Twenty-five years later, they again, moved into the same office to start Alambic Investment Management.  Scott McBride, who worked with Bert at Citigroup, and another colleague rounded out the founding team and, after a few months of coding, the team moved to office space in San Francisco’s Financial District.


The team spent the first three years building the data management, returns estimation and portfolio optimization platform that drives Alambic’s quantitative strategies. 

Since 2013, the firm has continuously improved its process, scaled operations and added capabilities to its offerings.
