TAO’s Alternative Opportunities Strategy aims to extract and monetize alternative investment opportunities in Equity, Rates and Foreign Exchange markets.
In order to achieve continued capital appreciation, while reducing drawdowns, the discretionary multi-asset strategy focuses on implementing uncorrelated OTC transactions which exploit structural dislocations, resulting in a highly diversified and well-balanced portfolio. Strategy investments target risk premia of second and third derivation such as volatility and correlation.
The drawdown optimisation is achieved through combining the opportunity investments in the portfolio with long volatility positions in all asset classes. The long volatility positions are an essential strategy component and are continuously employed in the portfolio.
The strategy shows a low correlation to traditional asset classes and has a live track record over more than 11 years and assets under management over 500mio EUR. It is investable in two formats, an AIF and a UCITS fund.
Quantum Investing is a UK-based investment boutique focusing on continuous research to find new sources of returns and to monitor its trading algorithms along various dimensions including economic drivers, crowdedness, hidden risks, and long term valuations.
The Quantum Multi Strategy aims to generate sustainable performance while maintaining a low average correlation to equities and bonds by systematically exploiting a number of investor biases and market structural inefficiencies.
The Strategy is designed along multiple layers of diversification through a combination of 20+ trading algorithms over five different asset classes (equities, bonds, interest rates, currencies, and commodities) and three regions (US, Europe and Asia).
Historically the strategy has exhibited a low correlation to similar multi-strategy portfolios .
First Private Investment Management, in partnership with hedge fund specialist Resonanz Capital, launches a new equity long/short strategy for index futures under a UCITS umbrella, the First Private Helix Fund.
The new First Private Helix fund relies on counter-cyclical investments to achieve uncorrelated returns using the reversal effect.
The reversal effect already demonstrated by De Bondt and Thaler in 1985 indicates that future stock market returns over a longer period of time are negatively correlated with past price performance. Stocks that have lower returns than the market over time will tend to outperform later and vice versa. This behavior can also be observed over short periods of time.
The Helix strategy takes advantage of this observation in a systematic and market-neutral approach by investing in a broadly diversified portfolio of approximately 30 global equity index futures. A statistical learning process adapts to dynamically changing market conditions.
Particularly in periods of heightened volatility, the strategy can benefit from market distortions and exploit the resulting trading opportunities.
The strategy has a return target of Euribor plus 10 percent with annualized volatility below 10 percent.
