O’Brien Investment Group LLC – Discretionary Global Macro Futures Program

Discretionary Global Macro Futures Program

Methodology: Discretionary

Strategy: Fundamental / Macro
Sub-Strategy: N/A
Market Focus: Diversified


Strategy Description

The O’Brien Investment Group Discretionary Global Macro Futures Program trades a diversified set of markets across all asset classes with a bias towards currencies and commodities. The manager uses fundamental macro analysis to identify major market themes, then looks to profit from potential events that display an asymmetric risk/return profile. Typically the portfolio will be comprised of 15-25 positions, representing approximately 5-6 macro themes. Trade duration for the program averages about 6-8 weeks, although positions representing long term themes may be held for over a year.

Risk Management

Risk is managed discretionarily, with positions sized relative to the perceived ratio between downside risks versus upside potential. While the program does not utilize stop losses, the manager attempts to size positions so that losses from individual trades would not exceed 5% under most adverse scenarios.
