Introduction

The Fulcrum Risk Premia Fund seeks to deliver returns systematically from a diversified range of global liquid risk premia and trading strategies, which have historically shown a low correlation to traditional asset classes in a liquid, transparent format.

We invest in commodities, currencies (developed and emerging market), fixed income (government bonds and interest rate swaps), credit index, equity index and equity volatility index markets. We do not invest in single name equities or individual credits.

Key Differentiators

  • Diversification: highly diversified portfolio of return streams from strategies, asset classes, and geographies
  • Macro Premia: focused on macro premia and not single-stock, equity-based premia
  • Discipline: robust, repeatable and transparent systematic investment process
  • Experience: successfully managing liquid risk premia strategies for nearly 15 years
  • Continual Research Improvements: as the markets change over time so must we; we are driven to innovate 
  • Transparency: we pride ourselves on our transparency with investors

Investment Philosophy

We have a collegiate approach to the academic and practical research around Risk Premia and implement the findings in a liquid format with a strictly systematic approach and a high level of transparency. Taking advantage of our distinguished position of being an asset manager with a sophisticated, experienced and well-regarded macroeconomic research capability, we combine this with our systematic research and use the strength of this collaboration to produce market-leading solutions for clients that help them diversify portfolios.
