The fund takes advantage of climbing (long) and falling (short) prices across some a wide range of equity, fixed income and currency markets worldwide. This is done via an innovative, prognosis-free quantitative system based on mathematical algorithms. These indicate, on a daily basis, how many long or short positions should be taken in the various markets, relying on the recent price trends. As a result positive returns can be achieved under any market conditions, independently from forecasts or market opinions, and with risk tempered by the diversification across several different markets.
