Global Macro Tactical Opportunities QEP only

Investment Strategy

Global Macro Tactical Opportunities focused on G20 equity and bond indices, as well as currencies and commodities.

The strategy involves tactical directional trades, focused on key turning points in market narratives. All decisions are discretionary, taken by the Portfolio Manager. Investment decisions factor in economic fundamentals, price action, investor sentiment and positioning, as well as potential price catalysts.

At any moment in time, a portfolio is concentrated in 1-3 macro themes, each expressed with 1-5 various instruments. The strategy targets 20%+ gross annual returns with <10% volatility, uncorrelated to equity, bond, or commodity markets.

Risk management was tightened in Q3 2021 to reflect expectations of growing economic uncertainty and market volatility. As part of that, trading became more catalyst-oriented with smaller trade sizes. As a result, portfolio volatility decreased substantially.
