ASSET ALLOCATION FOR AN EVOLVING WORLDChahine Systematic Global Macro Fund : A global and flexible multi asset fundGoal: Capital appreciation and preservation.Approach: Diversified and systematic management based upon trend followingtechnical and behavioral indicators.Tool: Responsive management by daily dynamic adjustment of the exposure to thedifferent markets, depending upon the ‘Momentum’ and the global behavioral state(Market sentiment, risk aversion, excess).
WHY? - DIVERSIFICATION DOES NOT PROTECT AGAINST LOSS
ACTIVE MANAGEMENT OF EXPOSURE : OPTIMIZE THE ASSET ALLOCATION MIX Modern asset management should be responsive. Flexibility is key in today’s rapidly transforming global economy. The Behavioral and Technical Asset Allocation Model (BTAAM) daily adjusts the exposure of each asset class using futures. Once the global exposure to various risks are determined, the BTAAM chooses between the different tradable instruments for each asset class. This arbitration is based upon the market opportunities and a mean reversion process. The BTAAM shifts from technical to behavioral analysis when the market is emotionally driven. Major trend changes occur at points of wild volatility and extreme fear. In this context, technical indicators become meaningless and the only reliable type of indicator to predict a market reversal are sentiment based.
Technical Asset Allocation Model (TAAM) IThe TAAM adjusts progressively the exposure to the right global risks (beta) acrossasset classes depending on a ‘state matrix’ defined by Global Momentum forEquities and for Government debt : The momentum of each security is calculated based on 12 Trend following and volatility indicators with 9 differents time frames and sensitivities. The Global Momentum for each asset class is the average of its components: Technical scoring as of 30/01/2013 Debt 16.67% Equities 90.59% Gold 25.76% Commodities 86.36%

Technical Asset Allocation Model (TAAM) IV
Behavioral Asset Allocation model (BAAM) IThe BAAM analyses market behavior using two different approaches : Measure of the excess in market sentiment defines a Risk on/Risk off mode : Indicator : Highly filtered Put/Call ratio When market sentiment is too high, risk is off to anticipate bull market reversal. When market sentiment is too low, risk is on to anticipate rebound after big sell off. Else the indicator is inactive. Measure of interest in the derivatives market defines a Trend following or contrarian mode : Indicator : Computed volatility of market sentiment When interest in the derivatives markets is too high, the contrarian mode is on Else the Trend following is on.
