Alvola: The proactive tail-hedging solution

Your situation

You're looking for investments whose returns are uncorrelated with major asset classes and that, even with a small allocation, help mitigate overall drawdowns of your asset allocation thanks to their strongly positive performance during market crashes.

Our solution

An innovative tail-hedging product, Alvola generates robust performance during periods of extreme market turmoil. Alvola helps to make sure your portfolio succeeds in all market phases by targeting positive absolute returns over an entire market cycle and negatively correlated returns to the equity market.

To avoid the negative carry common to many hedging solutions Alvola dynamically targets long volatility exposure through derivatives during market turmoil while remaining mainly exposed to cash equivalents during bull markets. Alvola is a perfect equity diversifier and an attractive alternative investment. Adding Alvola to your asset allocation can significantly increase your downside protection.

Convexus: Defensive equity 2.0

Your situation

You like defensive stocks because of their low realized volatility. However, they tend to underperform during bull markets and, in the event of a sharp decline, they often offer no real protection. To effectively protect your equity exposure, you would have to buy put options, but this is very expensive and would also negatively impact your long-term performance.

To effectively protect your equity exposure, you would have to buy put options, but this is very expensive and would also negatively impact your long-term performance.

Our solution

Alquant's equity UCITS fund called Convexus is an attractive alternative to defensive or put-protected equity solutions. Indeed, Convexus achieves lower realized volatility than blended equities while tending to provide better protection in major market downturns than standard low volatility solutions. Compared to put-protected solutions, Convexus seeks to better capture equity upside by minimizing hedging costs during strong market rallies without compromising on strong protection against sharp equity declines.

Convexus provides passive U.S. equity exposure enhanced by a dynamic derivative risk overlay based on Alquant's risk indicators. Through this dynamic risk overlay, Convexus aims to significantly reduce the impact of sharp equity declines while providing returns similar to the broad U.S. equity market during bull markets.
