Benefits of Our Approach
Dynamic Asset Allocation
We put our capital where the trends are, rather than adhering to a fixed allocation model (such as a 60/40 or top 10% relative strength model). Through the use of both ETFs and options, we can reduce the cost of ownership and impact of theta decay in long options. This helps to reduce drawdowns, whipsaws and trading costs.
- Responsive, not Predictive
When market trends change, our positions change accordingly. We seek trends across a diverse set of asset classes, including volatility ETFs and equity index options. As additional ETFs with sufficient options volume emerge, we can include them in our diversified asset set.
Through the use of options (particularly long puts), we can get greater performance from short positions than traditional methods of shorting which require high margins and have capped gains (an asset can only go down 100%). This allows shorts to make a greater contribution to our overall performance, all with much lower capital outlays.
- Smarter Leverage
Long options have lower capital requirements relative to outright ETF purchases and offer increased exposure when the trade works and decreased exposure when the trade goes against us, thanks to the changes in an option's delta. It provides us with "dynamic pyramiding" without having to put on additional trades.
