WaveFront Global Asset Management Corp – Global Concentrated Program

Global Concentrated Program

Methodology: Systematic

Strategy: Trend / Momentum
Sub-Strategy: Medium Term

Market Focus: Diversified


Strategy Description

The WaveFront Global Concentrated Program is a derivative of WaveFront’s flagship Global Investment Program, but requires a 75% signal strength before entering new positions, resulting in a much more concentrated portfolio. At its core, the program is a systematic long-term trend-following strategy, although the program has evolved since inception to include significant non-trend elements. These non-trend strategies are also systematic in nature, but include both technical and fundamental data. Current sub-strategies include a core trend-following alloction, combined with yield and value allocations for diversification. The program trades a broad and diverse group of markets, with roughly 50% of long-term risk allocated to financial markets and 50% allocated to commodity markets.

Risk Management

Risk is managed via a combination of value-at-risk (VaR) limits and stress tests. Portfolio VaR (1-day 99%) is limited to 350bps, sector VaR is limited to 150bps, and individual market VaR is limited to 70bps. Stress tests are also run against current portfolio positions using a variety of historic and hypothetical scenarios. If any stress test’s simulated loss exceed 10%, options are purchased to protect the position.
