AUTHENTIC’s 3 Categories of Investment Strategies
Diverse positions to source returns
AUTHENTIC establishes core portfolio holdings by taking outright positions in assets. Positions are typically held for more than 3 months, seeking return from a directional move in prices and other possible payoffs.
AUTHENTIC makes long and short tactical trades that opportunistically seek to profit from directional market moves, principally in foreign exchange, interest rate, equity and commodity markets. These tactical exposures are typically shorter term positions expected to close at any time from the same day to within one month.
Relative Value Positions
AUTHENTIC takes relative value positions principally in the interest rate and equity markets that seek to profit by capturing price convergence and divergence between instruments or groups of instruments through spread trades.
