CTA Advisory Services for Strategy Building

Active Investment Strategies:
When constructing a portfolio the first stage of the investment advisory process is to identify and categorise each trading strategy by their approach and execution method. The core strategies are selected by their ability to generate stable risk adjusted returns under various market conditions, with the satellite strategies adding to the alpha contribution at a controlled level of risk.

Sourcing External Managers

To be able to build successful investment strategies, Capricorn strives to access only a clearly defined CTA Strategy and therefore manager selection is one of the most important aspects of our process for seeking alpha. Particular attention is drawn to the correlation to equity indices under various market conditions.

The selection of each external manager is on the basis of a variety of quantitative and qualitative criteria, including;

  1. Long-term positive returns on capital invested
  2. Positive risk-adjusted performance measures
  3. Strategy alignment to the portfolio’s objective
  4. Favourable correlation with other strategies
  5. Proven track record and risk management capability
