Systematic Strategies

The Systematic Strategies unit of QCAM includes several Live Strategies with Performance Track Records reaching back to 2011, as well as the ongoing development of new strategies. Frequently, currency instruments are also used in the portfolio allocation. The speed of response and the recognition of trade opportunities in more than 200 different markets worldwide allows QCAM to generate performance in a way that would not be possible in a discretionary strategy.

The multi-award-winning systematic strategies have an average holding period of sometimes just a few days, analyze data up to every quarter-of-a-second, and can therefore respond promptly to market changes without human errors or emotions. Always with the goal of generating stable and market-independent returns over the medium term.

The strategies are in part negatively correlated to traditional and other alternative investments, allowing investors to efficiently diversify their portfolios. Even to currency strategies, which are mostly based on directional trading strategies (currency appreciation or depreciation), the strategies have little correlation.
