Typhon Capital Management LLC – Travinci

Trevinci Liquid Ag Strategy

Methodology: Discretionary

Strategy: Fundamental / Macro
Sub-Strategy: N/A

Market Focus: Agricultural


Strategy Description

The Trevinci Liquid Ag Strategy is a discretionary fundamental agricultural trading program, focusing exclusively on grains and related commodities. The portfolio manager leverages extensive commercial relationships, including thousands of farmers, in conjunction with a variety of proprietary models in order to forecast grain markets and spread relationships. Approximately 80% of trades are expected to be spread/relationship driven, while 20% are expected to be more directional in nature.

Risk Management

The strategy targets a maximum daily loss of 3% and a long-term annualized standard deviation of 12%. The manager utilizes a risk based sizing system, with most trades receiving a single risk unit allocation at initiation, but may be added to depending upon the manager’s conviction and/or the success of the trade. While no hard limit exists, historically the largest risk unit allocation to a single trade was 10 units. Portfolio level drawdown limits are also in place, with a 3% intra-month loss triggering a review by Typhon’s risk committee, and a 5% intra-month loss resulting in no additional risk being taken for the month.
