The most important facts about PAM ALPHA UCITS FUND long/short equity program.
The PAM Alpha strategy has a short-term trading horizon. It takes a position only for short periods to take profits. The strategy is based on three fully-systematic signal-giving models which seek for three different price- and volume-patterns in different time periods. These models are fully-systematic and based on proprietary programming knowledge for more than 12 years now.
We believe that statistically rigorous and robust analysis of markets will reliably identify continuous sources of alpha that persist due to inefficiencies in the behavior of market participants. We take a strictly quantitative approach to all aspects of trading. Strategy selection, portfolio construction, execution and risk control are all specified by algorithmic and systematic processes.
Our goal is to produce a consistent absolute return with an uncorrelated or negatively correlated performance result when measured against various US indices like the S&P 500 index, the U.S. Government Bond index, as well as hedge fund indices. Our trading programs, when examined for their diversification benefits, create the potential for a boost in performance to a portfolio while also reducing overall volatility.
Risk control is both proactive and reactive. Proactive risk controls include limits on leverage and scaling of positions appropriate to product volatility and return objectives. Our typical exposure is approximately 1/4 of maximum exposure, an at times, our strategies can be completely out of the market. Proactive risk control is further provided by strategy diversification. Reactive risk controls include a stop loss on positions.
