IS Diversified Trust
The CFM Institutional Systematic Diversified Trust (CFM ISDiversified) provides investors with a diversified exposure to Alternative Beta strategies.
Two and a half decades of investment in quantitative research and development have led us to observe that a class of quantitative investment strategies are scalable, sustainable and less prone to decay than others. Investors can obtain a diversified exposure to many of these strategies via the CFM ISDiversified program.
The strategies rely on low frequency phenomena that have existed for decades (and in some cases, centuries), across asset classes and geographies.The CFM ISDiversifed program invests in equal proportions of risk across three diversified portfolios:
Long-Term Trend Following
Momentum on exchange-traded futures across a growing universe, currently over 60 markets. The portfolio is directional, with diversified exposures to stock indices, bonds, short term interest rates and currencies.
Equity Market Neutral
1,200 single stocks, long and short. The portfolio construction is market neutral. Implementation is done with cash single name stocks and synthetic equity swaps with prime brokers.
The portfolio includes Momentum (long term trend on stock residuals), Value (long low price to fundamentals and short high P/F stocks) and Quality (assessing stock quality using fundamental data).
A constant risk implementation, harvesting the FX Carry Premium across a basket of a dozen currencies, and the Implied Volatility Premium across three asset classes (fixed interest, equity indices, and currencies).
