GCI Systematic Macro Strategy

Investment Strategy

GCI Systematic Macro dynamically takes long/short positions across a universe of OTC currency and financial futures markets (not including commodities). The systematic model identifies the optimal cross-asset combination of markets with the strongest trend. In order to hedge against the drawdown, hedging positions are embedded to enhance the overall Sharpe ratio of the portfolio. By combining the strongest tend with multiple complementary hedges, the resultant portfolio is designed to improve performance in choppy range-bound markets, and to generate low correlation with traditional asset classes.
 
Current there are two vehicles being used, 10% volatility and 25% volatility. The return for the 10% vehicle is exactly as shown in the database performance, however, the performance for the 25% vehicle is 2.5 times that shown in the database.
