Systematic trading strategies aimed at expoiting trends in financial and commodities markets

Key points:

  • Systematic, medium-term trend following a trading philosophy
  • Disciplined, sustainable and proven investment process
  • 20+ year track record
  • Non-linear correlation with traditional asset classes and other hedge fund styles


Transtrend believes that financial and commodities markets are not efficient. These inefficiencies manifest themselves through trends. It is possible to exploit these trends in a systematic and disciplined way.


Transtrend’s trading strategies have no directional bias and can go long or short to benefit from medium-term price trends in a wide variety of futures and forward markets, including interest rates, equity related markets, currencies and commodities. The strategies systematically search for trends in outright markets as well as comparing different markets, by looking, for example, at spread differentials. Risk management is at the heart of Transtrend’s trading methodology, with a focus on managing extreme downside risk.
