Metori's Epsilon trend program launches on Kettera's Hydra marketplace

Tuesday, September 24, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - Kettera Strategies LLC, which operates the Hydra Marketplace, the leading managed account marketplace for macro, commodities and liquid equity hedge fund strategies, announced that Metori Capital Management has launched its Epsilon Global Trend Program, on the Hydra marketplace.

The Epsilon Global Trend Program brings a scientific approach to trend-following with a distinctive focus on correlation dynamics for prediction and risk allocation.

The Metori group spun out of Paris-based Lyxor Asset Management in November 2016.

The Epsilon trading program's roots started in 1994 with Barep (Société Générale Bank) before it was transferred to Lyxor, then delegated to Metori in 2017. It is one of the oldest managed futures strategies in Europe.

"We are delighted to join Hydra's market place. Kettera delivers a very efficient set-up, enabling our team to focus on investment, research and front-office operations. This launch is an important milestone in the development of our company", said Nicolas Gaussel, Metori's CEO.

The move also spells Metori's move into the U.S. marketplace. The program's arrival may be timely - it comes at a time when systematic managed futures strategies are having a good year generally.

"It is very satisfying to see Metori's Epsilon on our platform," said Jon Stein, Kettera's CEO. "Not only have I watched the growth of the program since the 1990s, but the Metori team is an A-List of industry professionals."

This is an expansion of Hydra's marketplace, which has already distinguished itself in the macro/managed futures space by providing investors with daily transparency, intra-month liquidity and notional funding capabilities.
