Long Short Multi Premia


The Alpha Commodity Fund’s objective (the “Fund”) is to generate absolute performance.

This performance is generated thanks to a synthetic exposure to a portfolio of quantitative strategies aiming at benefiting from key Commodity markets’ specificities.

Key points:

  • Firstly, access, on a pure-Alpha basis, to similar Commodity Alpha sources as the ones used by our flagship in-house commodity strategy, BNP Paribas® Oscillator Commodity strategy (live since October 2007). Additional source of Alpha: backwardation.
  • Moreover, non directional, market-neutral portfolio of non directional, market-neutral underlying quantitative strategies, broadly uncorrelated with each other in order to benefit from diversification.
  • In addition, a dynamic and risk-balanced allocation.
  • At last, the funds aims at delivering a level of volatility ranging from 3% to 6% .
