A systematically different approach for more than 17 years


A fully systematic approach to investment management based upon extensive experience of forecasting returns and risk. Alder Capital's investment philosophy has remained consistent since its inception in 2000. This approach is built upon three broad pillars: the statistical identification of persistent market moves, a proprietary approach to forecasting risk and market-leading trading infrastructure to systematically capture returns and manage liquidity in a fully systematic manner.

Deep and liquid financial markets often demonstrate persistent behavioural characteristics. At Alder, these persistent effects are identified and measured using a statistical approach. The continuous evolution of markets is reflected in an evolving research process that deploys a combination of robust statistical techniques and market knowledge to ensure that the approach continues to capture return over the long term.

The proprietary risk forecasting models provide for the active management of risk across all products. Market-leading infrastructure ensures that this active management is efficiently implemented in the liquid markets traded.

Past performance, correlation and risk reduction may not be a reliable guide to future performance, correlation and risk reduction.

Returns have not been achieved without risk of loss. The tables on the performance documents gives some indication of the volatility of return from month-to-month but are not a guarantee as to the size of losses; losses may exceed those shown in the tables.

The AG10 and AG20 Programmes use leverage; where Alder Capital manages a managed account for an investor, the investor may lose not only the amount originally invested or deposited, but significant amounts in excess of the amount originally invested or deposited. Managed accounts may be subject to sudden and large falls in value.

Adverse changes in liquidity in the over-the-counter foreign exchange and futures markets may make it difficult or impossible to prevent losses or realise gains on transactions and to obtain reliable position valuation information and thereby manage the risk of positions in these markets.
