These styles include macro, value, carry, sentiment and intermarket linkages. This approach to harvesting risk premia recognizes the importance of tilting and timing of harvesting risk premia. Thus, rather than deploy these investment styles in isolation (i.e., in separate sleeves), the strategy seeks to harness them together – that is, integrating different styles in a non-linear fashion, and using dynamic selection of strategies algorithms to time-vary our exposure to individual risk premia, with exposures depending upon recent performance, crowding, economic cycles, etc. The strategy also relies upon leading edge portfolio construction techniques – specifically a Bayesian approach which deploys mean-variance-skewness optimization – to focus on drawdown avoidance and minimization. The Dynamic Commodity strategy seeks to outperform the Bloomberg Commodity Index over a market cycle.

Risk and price movements are statistically analyzed in order to determine if a market should be over- or underweighted versus a neutral portfolio.

When the program detects higher inefficiencies in markets it will adjust the exposure higher vs. a neutral portfolio, and vice-versa.
