Investment Manager's Commentary

as of 29/10/2021

Fund

The Quantica Managed Futures Program returned 4.78% in April 2022, bringing its year-to-date net performance to 12.36%.

All asset-classes contributed positively to the performance, reflecting the diversity of sustained trends across equities, bonds, rates, commodities and currencies. The Program’s risk allocation across asset-classes remained stable throughout the month, with the only noticeable changes being moderate increases in its short equity exposure from -19% to -30%, its short fixed-income exposure from -41% to -62% (10-year duration equivalent exposures), and its long Dollar exposure from +10% to +17%.

The continuous rise of both short- and long-duration yields in the US and Europe throughout April supported the Program’s diversified set of short Fixed-Income and Rates positions, which returned 1.4% and 0.8%, respectively, over that period. Similarly, the Program’s diversified net short exposure to US, European, Asian, and Emerging Markets equity indexes enabled the Program to take advantage of the steady decline in global equity markets and returned 1.4% for the month.

Following two very strong months, the Commodities asset-class continued to offer a range of attractive and independent trend opportunities in April and contributed 1.2% to the monthly performance. Energy futures added 1.2%, while agricultural commodities returned 0.7% for the month. Metals were the only notable detractors from performance last month, with a negative contribution of -0.7%.

Finally, the two strongest return contributors in April were in FX, with short positions in the Japanese Yen and the Euro generating an aggregate 1.3%, following a continued weakening of both currencies against the US Dollar throughout the month. Overall, currencies added 0.8% to the overall performance in April.

In summary, a set of powerful and sustained trends across the most liquid financial markets remained in place, as the signal-driven portfolio turnover of the Program over the past three months stayed low, and the portfolio remained well diversified.

As of month-end, Commodities still have the highest risk allocation among all asset classes. The remainder of the Program’s overall portfolio risk remains well distributed across Equities, Fixed-Income, Rates and Currencies.
