The firm derives its qualifications from its founder’s background in hedge funds and institutional consulting. Mr. Benedetti’s institutional consulting background provides the firm with rich experience in the utilization of alternative asset classes and complex trading strategies. His experience in developing quantitative strategies and trading for a global macro hedge fund experience gives the firm a focus on absolute return, as opposed to the relative return orientation of classic buy-and-hold. A rigorous research process underpins the firm’s investment strategies, which were developed over a period of nine years spanning two severe bear markets and tested using 90 years market history.
Though the firm’s investment process is primarily systematic in nature and focused on price trend and pattern recognition, the strategies are informed by an understanding of economic, technical, and fundamental factors, as well as historical stock market price behavior and characteristics from the 1920’s to the present day. At the heart of the investment process is its proprietary Equity Risk Management System. The system seeks to detect periods when stock markets are significantly under-performing and shift the equity portions of the portfolio to asset classes that tend to perform well in periods of extreme stock market stress.
The firm’s principal, Anthony Benedetti, began his career as Director of Research for the Bornhoft Group Corporation, where he consulted to Tricycle Asset Management regarding the Business Development Bank of Canada Managed Futures Notes. Afterward, he worked for Quantitative Equity Strategies, where he developed sophisticated quantitative trading strategies for the QES Quant Macro Fund, L.P. Prior to founding the firm, he served as Vice President of Research for The Institute for Wealth Management, where he built ETF-based investment models for retail clients based on portfolios developed by the private the wealth management arms of Goldman Sachs and Barclays.
1. Performance of the portfolio manager's account is calculated by Covestor on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions and broker commissions. Manager returns include trades and positions that fail Covestor's trading rules, as a result, actual client returns will differ. Covestor advisory fees are simulated and applied retro-actively to present the portfolio return "net-of-fees".
2. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Periodic and since inception performance returns are calculated daily. Monthly vs. S&P 500 return and the corresponding spark chart is calculated to the most recent month end date.
3. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to follow a particular portfolio. The minimum amount is determined by Covestor, based on the characteristics of the underlying portfolio. It should not be considered as specific investment advice for your investment situation.
