Yield Solutions launches its best ideas in two new funds

Tuesday, May 01, 2018

Bailey McCann, Opalesque New York for New Managers:

Geneva-based Yield Solutions got its start in 2016 working with family offices on custom portfolio overlays and separately managed accounts. Now the firm is ready to come to market with two new funds that draw on some of it's best ideas.

Yield Solutions Indigo and Sapphire are designed to add diversity to core portfolios. YS Indigo is a systematic multi-strategy portfolio that trades futures, options and ETF's on equity and volatility indices, fixed income, rates, commodities, and currencies. The second fund, YS Sapphire is a systematic multi-strategy portfolio of equity and equity volatility products. It's strategies are price driven and are designed to take advantage of changes in equity index and VIX fundamentals.

The investment team - Boudewijn van Vliet, Stephane Nicolas and Felix Euler, have created the two strategies after working with several family offices in Switzerland. These investors were looking for portfolio overlays that would capture uncorrelated sources of return without sacrificing liquidity. "We did one overlay, for example, that was driven by our physical geography," explains Tom Powell, Chief Commercial Officer at Yield Solutions. "We are near holders of physical gold and they worked with us to find a return strategy for those assets. The result was a leveraged return on physical gold."
