The North MaxQ Macro UCITS Fund is a global macro UCITS fund that seeks to generate absolute returns of 10% to 12% per annum (net of fees) over a market cycle.

The returns are very uncorrelated to other global macro managers, the broad hedge fund universe and primary equity indices. The investment manager identifies macro/micro-economic and country specific imbalances to develop views and corresponding trading strategies. These strategies provide a diverse source of alpha and are expressed through thematic, relative value and counter-trend exposures. The exposures are constructed to offer the best asymmetric payoff, while minimizing expected correlations.

The investment manager takes risk across a number of different strategies rather than allocating most of the risk to a few large macro trades. Typically, more than half of the Fund’s risk is allocated to countries within the European time zones. Risk is monitored on a real time basis both at the strategy and portfolio level and stop-loss limits are established at the inception of each trade.
