Investment Concepts and Product Design

Our Investment Concepts

All of our indexation and investment concepts have been designed as “absolute return“ strategies, i.e. they are able to profit from rising as well as from falling markets and therefore, they do not depend on the general development of the capital markets.

 

Pure hedging conceptions are intended to systematically protect portfolios of the asset classes of shares, pensions, currencies and raw materials, existing on the part of the customers, from price risks in the course of time („overlay management“).

 

We attach importance to highly liquid hedging or investment instruments that are traded on the stock exchange. All investment types can be traded by our customers daily and are based upon the following analysis methods:

 

Investment concepts on basis of quantitative time course analyses:


Quant.Möbius Dax Classic and Quant.Möbius Dax Portfolio: 2 share strategies for shares of the Dax 30 index based upon an absolute return concept in accordance with the investment principle ”Golden Cross” of the technical market analysis (systematic long-/short-term approach).


The share strategies of “Quant.Möbius Dax“ are based upon empirical studies conducted by Prof. Dr. Christian Möbius (Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg, Karlsruhe; Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University Karlsruhe) about the success of longer-term trend following systems for the insurance business. They constitute conservative absolute return conceptions on basis of shares of the German stock index “Dax” having a longer-term investment period to build up sustainable substance.

 

Quant.Möbius Dax Classic is managed directly in accordance with the classic “Golden Cross“ configuration (38 days or 200 days of moving averages), whereas Quant.Möbius Dax Portfolio I is managed in accordance with a strategy portfolio showing variations of the classic “Golden Cross” base strategy.

 

In the field of risk management, both share strategies use Dynamic Risk Control, a proprietary risk control system, in addition to the qualified approach, to further perpetuate the revenue performance.

 

Quant.Möbius DAX Classic and Quant.Möbius DAX Portfolio combine the advantages of an investment in shares of the Dax-30 index with the protection by a systematic short overlay to achieve an indexation and with additional potential profits during bear markets.


Both strategies based upon the “Golden Cross” concept have been made available since 2nd January 2012 within institutional public funds in accordance with the UCITS-IV Directive.

 

Quant.Möbius Golden Cross Diversified: A systematic long-/short-term trend following strategy based upon the investment principle of the “Golden Cross“. Here, this strategy approach is applied separately to a globally diversifying portfolio consisting of the asset classes of shares, pensions, currencies and raw materials. Further diversification is made by variations of the base strategy of the “Golden Cross” concept for these asset classes. The strategy of Golden Cross Diversified is implemented through highly liquid standard futures contracts of the leading international futures markets (EUREX, CME, ICE).

 

The systematic risk management of Quant.Möbius Golden Cross Diversified limits the market risks of the whole portfolio, of the percentage of the various investment classes in the whole portfolio, of the exchange risks and of the amount of the various investments in the portfolio. In addition to the qualified approach, Dynamic Risk Control is used as a supplementary risk control system to further perpetuate the revenue performance.

 

Quant.Möbius Golden Cross Diversified has been made available for Private Investors and for Institutional Investors since 16th January 2012 within a balanced fund in accordance with the UCITS-IV Directive.
