Man AHL Alpha (AUD) Fund
A trend following strategy that identifies and captures trends across a range of sectors including stocks, bonds, currencies, agriculturals, metals, interest rates, energies and credit.
Trend following strategies use sophisticated computer algorithms to identify trends, which allow them to trade hundreds of diverse markets simultaneously and avoid biases introduced by human emotions.
Man AHL’s trend following approach seeks to generate returns from sustained price movements (price trends or other repeatable patterns) in the markets it accesses.
This approach is a fully systematic, research driven, quantitative process that exploits technical or price driven signals through investment in a broad range of futures and forward markets, as well as highly liquid OTC markets. It’s underpinned by the AHL Alpha Program, a sophisticated computerised managed futures program designed to identify and capture trends across a range of sectors.
The strategy is characterised by its flexibility. It is uniquely poised to re-establish positions irrespective of whether the prior trend resumes or a new one emerges. This flexibility is derived from the key principle of trend-following, that it is directionally unbiased and can take both long and short positions across all markets traded.
This gives rise to a return stream which is generally uncorrelated to equity markets in the long term but has the potential ability to perform strongly in times of stress.
