Ergoteles primarily uses systematic and quantitative methods in managing their fund. The firm seeks to select generally diversified, risk-managed portfolios, which will outperform the risk-free rate. However, non-diversified positions may have a material effect on the portfolio risk, diversified positions may be correlated, some of the positions may not be computer-driven, and the fund may have exposure to market or other risk factors. Ergoteles makes investments on behalf of the fund, mainly in global equity and equity derivative (e.g., futures, options, swaps) securities. On occasion, they may hold non-equity securities (e.g., foreign exchange, preferred stock and bonds) for hedging or investment purposes. As part of their investment strategies, Ergoteles engages in frequent trading. The firm Ergoteles attempts to develop models that are superior to its competition with the goal of generating superior-to-market returns. The methods used by Ergoteles may include statistical forecast generation, trend following, mean reversion, fundamental based analysis, relative value or arbitrage oriented methods, as well as other methods.
