AAM hires Stuart Barron to manage newly launched Diversified Futures Program
Anello Asset Management, the independent alternative investment manager and specialized managed account provider, has hired Stuart Barron to manage its new Diversified Futures Program.
The multi-asset account is based on Barron’s proprietary, technically driven trading system, which uses his personal wealth and has generated positive annual returns since its creation in late 2005 – on average 35.6% between January 2006 and December 2010. The new program invests across a range of futures markets – including currency, commodity, energy and interest rates.
The DFP strategy, aimed at capturing major market trends across a number of futures markets, differs from AAM’s Mantis program, in that the investment strategy is formed using longer-term trends and a lower trading frequency.
AAM states that the life expectancy of market trends are determined using probabilistic signal filters to define optimal entry and exit points.
Barron has worked for a number of leading banks and investment houses, including HBOS, HSBC, UBS, JPMorgan and AXA Investment Managers, where he developed his knowledge of trading systems.
He started a systematic trading strategy by collating and analyzing historical price data for 15 different futures markets, and back-testing different strategies.
Confident in the performance of his trading system, Barron joined AMM to manage the diversified futures program on behalf of clients across the world.
AAM is offering the program as an individual managed account with a minimum investment of $150,000 for US clients and £25,000 for UK and European clients.
