Longchamp Trocadero Fund

Strategy Overview

The Longchamp Trocadero Fund’s objective is to generate absolute return with limited volatility, helping investors diversify traditional portfolios through an actively managed allocation of Quantitative Investment Strategies (“QIS”) combining:

  • Alternative Carry Strategies
  • Tail Hedge Strategies

A QIS follows a systematic investment process, implemented by investment banks. These strategies are strategically designed to adopt distinct behaviors based on the ever-evolving dynamics of specific market drivers.

Our enhanced portfolio construction technique consists in adding diversification to a balanced portfolio by implementing QIS strategies: 

  1. Elevating the efficiency of the classic 60/40 portfolio through a blend of diversifying strategies, including market access, carry, and defensive strategies.
  2. Our foundation is laid on  long-term portfolio construction through Markowitz optimization. This method rests upon fundamental performance drivers and a continuous analysis of market configurations, affording us the flexibility to make tactical adjustments as required.

The Fund can be described as a Multi Strategy product and exhibits rather stable returns.
