Three More Typhon Strategies Named Finalists for CTA Intelligence Performance Awards


Typhon’s Vulcan Metals Fund continues to rack up award nominations after already winning this year’s CTA Intelligence Best Specialized CTA and HFM Week’s Best Newcomer CTA Awards in 2018. It recently was named a finalist for CTA Intelligence’s Best Commodity Fund Award. This comes on the heels of Vulcan’s incredible 2017 and 2018 track record with only a single down month of the 22 since it launched.

Two of our newer managers, are also first-time nominees, extending Typhon’s record of success incubating managers over our ten-year history.  

Our Zephyrus Livestock Strategy was short-listed for Best Emerging CTA (12-36 months). Over its first 23 months, Zephyrus has returned 62.42% at a 1.28 Sharpe Ratio under the management of longtime Livestock expert, Nick Nicholas, combined with our CIO, David Klusendorf’s risk model.

Typhon’s Leonidas Cryptocurrency Program was one of the first ever cryptocurrency futures trading programs, going live 30 minutes after the launch of the CBOE futures program. The short-term quantitative program is managed by George Michalopoulos. Mr. Michalopoulos was formerly Citadel’s senior-most energy derivatives trader and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa at the University of Chicago. Since joining Typhon, he has excelled trading both “physical” cryptocurrency and futures, as well as Energy.

All 3 of the nominated strategies are available independently, as components in custom portfolios, or in Typhon’s forthcoming risk-weighted cross-asset class Argos Tactical Trading Fund.   

In conclusion, it’s gratifying to go into year-end with several of our managers and the firm as a whole outperforming general markets as our idiosyncratic, niche strategies have again proven their value as uncorrelated return drivers apt at successfully navigating volatile markets. We’re thankful for the continued support of our long-term clients who have helped make this year a great one, and we wish everyone a happy holiday season.

We look forward to seeing many of you at MFA and Context Summits in January, please feel free to reach out to schedule a meeting.


Yours truly,

The Typhon Team
