Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque Geneva:
Infinium Global Fund, a new global macro / multi-strategy fund, uses a proprietary trading model developed by its two brother-directors. This model makes extensive use of trading derivative contracts on an electronic basis to exclude price distortions typical of pit transactions. It also uses liquidity so as not to create problems with the execution of big orders.
The fund was up 4.56% in July, 49% YTD, and it returned 43% in 2010, from its July inception. With $1m under management, it is targeting up to $250-$300m.
It currently features in Opalesque Solutions' Emerging Managers Database.
Andriy Kalyta, one of Infinium’s directors, told Opalesque that the fund’ strategy is not based on any secret formula, but on a strict system of investment activity: "Our track record in currency management supports our belief that technical and quantitative models, combined with market analysis and experience, can provide consistently acceptable risk-adjusted performance."
