Active Portfolio Management
The investment process philosophy follows a core-satellite logic, that is to say a combination of directional strategies (beta) and non-directional (alpha) strategies, both as regards Relative Value and as regards Yield enhancement.
Product innovation involves asset classes requiring a high level of specialisation and notable capacity for analysis.
Sidera Funds fulfils these aims through the use of advanced quantitative tools and consolidated partnerships with managers of high standing and a solid track record.
Risk and its measurement are key factors for the management of the stock portfolio, which should above all be seen as the sum of well-calibrated and selected strategies based on their contribution to overall volatility.
The close connection between markets and financial instruments requires that the investor – and thus the manager – prefers the construction of an advanced portfolio. A portfolio regulated by a series of metrics that also function as a formal risk control and Sub-Fund orientation.
The financial lever is mainly used for alpha extraction, attenuating or minimising portfolio risk. Such index is measured through Value at Risk and is calculated in absolute terms or in relative terms, depending on whether the Sub-Funds have a benchmark reference or an absolute performance objective.
