Investment Manager's Commentary

as of 29/10/2021


The Quantica Managed Futures UCITS Fund returned -1.4% in December 2022, bringing the net return for the year to +11.7%.

This month’s performance was mainly attributable to equities and currencies. Equities were the main detractor, returning -1.1%, driven by the Fund’s net long exposure to European markets, which reversed some of their strong gains from the previous month, and its net short exposure to Asian markets, which were buoyed by a faster than anticipated China reopening. Currencies also weighed on performance, returning -0.6% for the month, mainly on the back of the sharp strengthening of the Japanese Yen against the US Dollar.

The overall contribution of short-term interest rates and fixed income was mostly neutral, although government bonds in the US and Europe displayed some large intra-month volatility. Similarly, commodities ended the month flat, but hiding significant intra-month reversals and dispersion across sub-sectors. Ultimately, by the end of December, gains in precious metals and agricultural markets were offset by losses of equivalent magnitude in different energy markets.

The market moves of December had a limited impact on the overall positioning of the Fund, except for commodities. The Fund kept a mostly neutral net exposure, in both equities and currencies, associated with a gross exposure of around 40% and 36%, respectively. Notably, the Fund’s net exposure to the US Dollar turned short into year-end (i.e., 4%), a first in almost 18 months. At the same time, 10-year duration equivalent net exposure in fixed income & interest rates remained at -57% at the end of the month. More generally, December saw a relative re-allocation of risk by the Fund from equities, fixed income, and currencies into commodities, with its net long exposure increasing from 32% at the beginning to 52% at the end of the month.

As a result, heading into the new year, two-thirds of the Fund’s overall risk is split roughly equally between a net long exposure to commodities and a net short exposure to government bonds and short-term interest rates.
