Capricorn is an established CTA firm with a global client base that includes; Banks, Asset Allocators, Institutions, Fund of Funds and High Net Worth Individuals. Since 1999 Capricorn has produced superior risk adjusted returns in its ‘pure alpha’ CTA strategies, trading high liquid currencies as managed accounts for Individual and Institutional clients. Recognised by industry peers as an accomplished CTA strategy provider with our award winning currency programs, the Capricorn products seek strong returns with low volatility and correlation to other investment strategies. Our success in creating a CTA trading strategy which has been able to generate returns for more than decade is a testament to our robust investment process. This investment philosophy is shared across each trading strategy we produce.
At Capricorn, we believe that risk-adjusted returns can be consistently achieved in today’s currency market by having technical rules for trading, combined with a strong discipline. From our expertise of the currency markets, we believe that it is a liquid, cost-efficient and well developed asset class that fluctuates due to a multiple of factors. It is by understanding how the varying impacts of these factors influence currency fluctuations, which we conclude is a great source for creating pure alpha. Furthermore, we maintain that a CTA manager must investigate trading opportunities using technical analysis, whilst incorporating the discipline needed into the procedure to effectively govern risk management. Following this methodology for trading currencies has been fundamental in Capricorn persistently creating pure alpha in its CTA trade programs.
