London-based CTA firm Sequent joins dbSelect platform
London-based CTA Sequent Capital has launched its diversified managed futures program on Deutsche Bank's dbSelect platform, according to EuroHedge.
The move allows investors to access the strategy in a transparent, safe and efficient manner via the Deutsche platform, which is specifically intended for accessing liquid hedge fund strategies.
Sequentâ€™s main trading program, Sequent CTA Fundamental Diversified (V12), uses trading systems that rely on both price data and fundamental data to trade more than 50 macro instruments across four asset classes: foreign exchange, fixed income, stock indices and commodities.
The strategy aims to achieve a low correlation to its peers by combining the fundamental insights of macro trading and the discipline and risk control of CTA strategies.
"Our trading program is designed to participate in most large global macro price dislocations, while aiming to beat, on a risk-adjusted basis and on a sector-by-sector basis, most passive, long-biased indices," said Antoine Haddad, Sequentâ€™s founder.
"Since our relocation from New York to London in 2008, we have focused on the scalability and customisability of our product offering," he added. "Sequentâ€™s quantitative portfolio management platform can support the creation of custom managed futures portfolios, where market selection, market biases, and VaR limits or targets can be specified by the client."
Sequent Capital and its parent company, Bainbridge Partners, manage approximately $1 billion in total assets.
