Brookvine partners with CdR Capital Ltd to bring its highly differentiated alternative risk premia strategy to investors in Australia and New Zealand
Brookvine has partnered with London-based CdR Capital Ltd to bring its highly differentiated alternative risk premia strategy to investors in Australia and New Zealand. CdR Capital Ltd (CdR) manages systematic and esoteric investment strategies for the CdR Group.
Brookvine CEO, Steven Hall, said that alternative risk premia strategies seek to provide exposure to multiple alternative return streams within a single investment, many of which have traditionally been accessed via hedge funds.
Alternative risk premia typically has low correlation to traditional asset classes, at fair levels of fees, and with greater transparency than many hedge funds. Brookvine’s focus was on finding a manager that added to the variety of risk exposures currently on offer.
“CdR’s investment strategy has evolved from more conventional risk premia strategies. The CdR Systematic Absolute Return (SAR) Fund incorporates a broader diversity of signals, markets and strategies than its peer group. CdR is well placed to innovate in the alternative risk premia space, with the core of the investment team having worked together for over 10 years, at CdR and before that at Fulcrum Asset Management,” Steven said.
CdR’s Chief Investment Officer, Apostolos Katsaris, said that CdR offers a diversified basket of risk premia strategies, across trend, carry, value, volatility and event. “Some of the implemented signals are very differentiated, and the universe of instruments CdR trades is wider than many of our peers. We incorporate more emerging market equity markets, currencies and rates, and more ‘esoteric’ markets such as rubber, canola and electricity. These esoteric markets account for approximately 25-30% of the risk,” Apostolos said.
CdR targets a return of 8% p.a. and volatility of 8-12%. It has a low correlation to traditional markets and conventional long-only investment strategies.
The CdR Systematic Absolute Return Fund is distributed to institutional and wholesale investors in Australia and New Zealand through Brookvine.
