Message from Dato Jeremy Smeeton, CEO
17-Dec-2017
After several years of research, GAAs original quant team has now identified new methodologies which are currently being implemented. Reducing the relevant universe of stocks considered to around 6,000 whilst selecting a reduced number of up to 80 long stocks per month, the shorting mechanism has been revised to take into account stocks displaying some of the weakest fundamentals as opposed to shorting indices. A profit taking mechanism has also been implemented which allows profits from the short portfolio to be taken intra month, and in so doing protecting the overall returns of the total long/short portfolio. The underlying quant programme has been backtested to 2011 and realtime trading has been tested with extremely encouraging results. The whole Q Fund portfolio will be reweighted over the coming months to reflect the new approach.

Back testing the new programme over the last 2 years reveals the potential strength of the revised methodology as can be seen in the above pro forma graph.
