Man in the Arena
“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of
deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred
by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there
is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends
himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the
worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid
souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.“
- Quote by United States President Theodore Roosevelt. April 23, 1910
OneGlobalFX managed account platform
At OneGlobalFX, the continual focus of our firm is to carefully select, monitor and track the performance of a
constantly evolving collective of a diverse selection of what we believe to be some of the best currency traders
Our process is designed to follow a rigorous methodology for sourcing, evaluating and extensive ongoing
monitoring of suitable currency traders. Tracking and monitoring is a critical component of our commitment to
maintaining a high-quality platform of currency traders. Our management closely monitors performance and
reviews trading positions on an ongoing basis.
The OneGlobalFX managed account platform provides hedge funds, institutional investors and high-net-worth
private investors’ with a straightforward and efficient way to access the account tracking platform in a liquid
managed account format with direct reporting.
We provide currency management aiming to exploit micro trends with a multi-trader, multi-strategy, multi-time
frame, diversified portfolio approach utilizing different strategies and trading approaches with direct and
continuous transparency and online validation of the investment value of capital.
World economies are connected like never before. OneGlobalFX connects the dots globally with a network of
global independent traders.
Multi-manager account structure
At OneGlobalFX we are building an FX multi-manager, multi-strategy separate managed account platform,
structured into an investors separate master-feeder account, incorporating a master account with a series of sub-
trading accounts. Using a ‘manager-of-managers’ model OneGlobalFX acts as portfolio manager of a
combination of different FX traders that manage the sub-trading accounts.
The platform serves as a common entry point for investors and offers a greater degree of diversification than an
individual currency manager and broader exposure to different strategies from the complementary blending of
underlying currency traders that manage the sub-trading accounts. Client capital is managed in the investors
account structure with a custodian broker with an independent trader executing short-term trading strategies in
separate managed sub-trading accounts.
Unlike a ‘fund-of-hedge funds’, the ‘manager-of-managers’ model increases transparency to the investor.The
OneGlobalFX managed account platform gives investors 24-hour real-time transparency, trader oversight, sub-
trading account risk management, and third-party custody and account security controls.
Leveraging capital and independent trading intelligence
OneGlobalFX allocates trading capital to an external network of performance driven traders that can deploy
diversified intra-day trading strategies to broaden and deepen the currency trading operations.
The company was founded by a forward-thinking veteran trader (over 19 years professional trading private
accounts and hedge fund accounts) that outsources trading operations and allocates trading capital to a collective
of currency traders.
Our philosophy encourages independent thinking and our management is approachable and available for direction
and/or support. Our goal is simply to build a worldwide network of individual high-performance currency traders
that cover all timeframes, to operate around the clock, and to generate income in partnership with the traders that
we provide capital.
Our reputation depends in large part upon our ability to understand and evaluate the capabilities, performance,
processes and practices of the multi-styles of the multi-traders that manage the sub-accounts.
Spot opportunity. Trade. Take profit. Repeat
All strategies must be short term and be considered as either ‘opportunistic trading strategies’ or ‘micro-trend
trading’ (in-and-out of trades in a matter of minutes instead of hours).
Traders can trade their own strategies and also may utilize our proprietary software and custom indicators and
scale our existing strategies. Trading decisions may be discretionary (based on the traders’ judgment) or
systematic (based upon computer signals where the trader oversees the execution process).
The overall trading strategy involves taking consistent small profits, rather than riding big, flashy run-ups
(followed by equally flashy run-downs). The average trader would likely make 10 to 15 trades per day, about 5 to
20 pips per trade.
This methodology attempts to profit from the intra-day micro-trends. If the trade moves in the predicted direction
small profits are taken as soon as momentum is lost. This daily strategy creates incremental profits as markets
flow back and forth in the overall trend direction.
Each trader that we allocate capital is allotted a peak to trough monthly stop loss, and maximum leverage
allowance. These stops are rigorously enforced. Leverage is constantly monitored on a real-time basis.
Traders considered to receive capital allocation undergo a due diligence process. It’s required that a trader has
traded his own capital or funds that he manages on our account platform to firstly prove their trading capability at
actively trading for us to be satisfied with strategy and exposure, peak to trough drawdown, etc. Traders that
demonstrate consistent profitability at buying and selling frequently intra-day will be allocated capital to one of our
sub-trading accounts to be traded with a profit share payable on a monthly basis.
The trading manager will have transparency into transaction activity and assess a traders’ performance during
the review period. The trades are carefully examined. Every position may be viewed in real-time so we can
assess risk at any given moment, including spot positions, intra-day leverage and stop loss limits. The trading
manager scrutinizes the trading methodology and overall performance, and whether the trading strategy is
After three months trading the capital allocation will be increased if the performance is proven solid and would
range between $100K and $1M. After a full twelve months trading we determine how much capital to allocate a
trader based on the traders’ performance. Progressive allocations will be made based on the long-term
performance. High-performance traders will earn larger capital allocations, expanding the income potential for
themselves and the firm.
Compensation is equivalent in structure to a hedge fund managers performance fees.
Traders will receive as compensation for their trading management services, a monthly performance (incentive)
fee. The performance fee is paid only if an account has new profits.
The traders cut of profits will be 20%. The majority of the profits are returned to the hedge funds and investors.
If the account experiences a loss, the trader will not receive another performance fee until the account has
