Investment Approach

brain

 

  • SAR has a strong focus on research and development, designing and implementing quantitative trading strategies to provide true value added through systematic and absolute return generating investment products with superior performance.
  • SAR has a clear commitment to develop, design and create ever new and fresh unexploited investment strategies, based on its belief that markets are dynamic and investment parameters change over time, resulting in the need for asset managers to adapt to these changes through constant research and innovation.
  • SAR is focusing its research and development efforts on exploiting behavioral biases explained by the Adaptive Market Hypothesis (AMH) via back-tested, quantitative models, adopting the latest available algorithms and trade engines.
  • Our main effort lies in applying the logic of the Fundamental Law of Active Management (Grinold/Kahn), i.e. maximizing and stabilizing a strategy´s information coefficient and applying it with high frequency (breadth), to maximize excess return (Alpha). This implies developing as many different and independent alpha generators as possible and combining them to achieve a “condensed” Alpha.
  • Besides developing trading strategies in-house, SAR will also partner with external research partners with interesting trading models and in exchange offer them its expertise and experience in trading and risk management, as well as its existing platforms and access to its network of partners and clients.
