Our Investment Strategies

Absolute Return Strategy

Unique strategy derived from ancient Chinese philosophy.

Provide all weather 15-30% absolute annual return through active investment in a long only equity portfolio with our proprietary Quantitative Space-Time trading system.

Our investment philosophy:

Historical return and risk measurement do NOT apply to the future; minimizing Fat-Tail Risk is KEY. 

Strictly emphasize risk management while PASSIVELY receiving investment returns.

Identify investment opportunities at early stages with a view of profiting as they become known.

Where Time and Space* intercept, the path to "alpha" becomes clearer. 

*Time: Uncertainty that future brings;

Space: Measurable and known object as it encompasses current and past events
