Vulcan Metals Fund wins Hedgeweek Best Discretionary CTA Award

Typhon’s Vulcan Metals Fund collected another award at a ceremony in London last week as Hedgeweek named Vulcan the Best Discretionary CTA at its 2019 Global Awards. This award follows Vulcan’s wins from last year for CTA Intelligence's Best Specialized CTA and HFM Week’s Best Newcomer CTA Awards.

Vulcan was also shortlisted for the 2019 CTA Intelligence Best Commodity Fund award along with Typhon’s Zephyrus Livestock Strategy for best Agricultural Strategy and Typhon’s Leonidas Cryptocurrency Program for Best Cryptocurrency Strategy.

Below is our new Head of Quantitative Trading, Francois Moreau, accepting the Hedgeweek award in London. Mr. Moreau will also be presenting Vulcan at the ABN Amro Amsterdam Investor Forum which is March 19th-20th:

Argos Tactical Trading portfolio underperforms in January

While we continue to prepare for the launch of the Argos Tactical Trading Fund, which combines our 9 groups of portfolio managers’ exchange traded strategies on a risk-weighted basis, we will continue to report out-of-sample performance for the portfolio. In January, the Argos Tactical Trading Fund was down 216 bps. Our risk-weighting algorithm reduced Stoic’s exposure for January, and most of the portfolio constituents were down slightly in January.
