Syquant Helium Performance is an event driven fund that aims to provide consistent positive performance by combining two equity market neutral arbitrage strategies (merger arbitrage and event driven) with two systematic strategies (‘stock selection’ and ‘systematic long/short’) investing in mature markets across North America and Europe. The fund is based on Syquant’s flagship fund, Syquant Helium Opportunities, which combines the merger arbitrage, event driven and systematic long/short trading books but has a lower return profile than this fund. The fund was first launched in May 2013 and has generated annualised returns of 5.7% with annualised volatility of 3.1% since then. October 2014 has been challenging for many event driven stratetgies although Syquant appears to have weathered the storm very well many thanks to their disciplined and diversified approach which as stood them in good stead to date.
