Trigon is a New York-based Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) managing approximately $500 million in client assets. Trigon was founded in 2002 by Paul Mastroddi and Ante Basic who together have 45 years of investment experience at some of Wall Street’s most recognizable firms.
Trigon’s investment philosophy embodies the belief that both discretionary and systematic trading strategies can profit over time but that they will have different correlation and volatility properties. Trigon’s Discretionary Macro Program, its largest, utilizes the fundamental and technical backgrounds of its portfolio managers to formulate top-down investment themes. It was chosen as Best New Managed Futures Program Under $100MM by HFMWeek in 2009 and has since tripled in size. Trigon’s FX Program has the longest track record and employs a systematic model to trade currencies on a short- to intermediate-term horizon. Finally, Trigon’s multi-strategy Global Macro Program utilizes both discretionary and systematic methodologies. Corporate website: www.trigoninvestment.com
