The Advanced Trend Program is designed to efficiently capture long-term trend following returns with the objective of delivering a competitive risk-adjusted return with greater alpha relative to the broader trend following industry. In pursuing this objective, the Advanced Trend Program will employ multiple, price-driven, systematic strategies that participate in market trends across a diversified global portfolio of approximately 200 futures and foreign exchange instruments.
The Program seeks to control risk by dynamic sizing of new trades relative to market volatility, the use of stops and a balance of volatility broadly diversified across sectors and geographic regions. The Advanced Trend Program has an approximate 35-day average hold timeframe.
