ecamos Global Opportunities (eGO) Strategy

The ecamos Global Opportunities (eGO) Strategy pursues an absolute return mandate and aims to achieve substantial medium to long term capital appreciation based on a generally uncorrelated risk-return profile. The strategy is a blend of the two longstanding and successful main strategies of ecamos, the ecamos Core Strategy and the ecamos Volatility Strategy.

From 1 January 2012 returns correspond to real traded gross figures of the ecamos Core Strategy USD and the ecamos Volatility Strategy USD, equally weighted (rebalanced monthly), adjusted to a target volatility of 15% p.a., 1.5% management fee, 20% performance fee and 0.5% structure fee.

ecamos Core Strategy

The ecamos Core Strategy aims to achieve substantial medium to long term capital appreciation by employing a diversified portfolio of quantitative investment strategies based on economic rationales. Its main driver consists of a unique model combining trend following and mean reversion into a single concept, which is implemented globally across more than 75 highly liquid futures markets spanning all asset classes (equities, interest rates, bonds, currencies and commodities). The addition of several satellite strategies further increases portfolio stability and results in a generally uncorrelated risk-return profile.

Additionally returns were subject to 20% performance fees. Since 17 December 2014 returns reflect the results of the C share class of the Linden Core Fund 1X, respectively 2X.

ecamos Volatility Strategy

The ecamos Volatility Strategy is based on a systematic investment approach to achieve substantial medium to long-term capital appreciation by exploiting risk premia on volatility futures and options. The strategy is positioned either long or short on the various volatility futures over the term-structure of the curve. Systematically hedging the positions enables the gap risk of the strategy to be reduced and stability of performance to be increased. Positions and weightings are dynamically adjusted to protect against prolonged drawdowns.

Since 16 May 2013 returns are based on the C class of the Edelweiss Volatility Fund.
