Objectives and Strategy

To generate significant medium-term capital growth independent of overall movements in traditional stock and bond markets within a rigorous risk management framework. The option aims to provide a return greater than the Reserve Bank of Australia cash rate over rolling three-year periods after fees and taxes.
Aspect takes a quantitative and systematic investment approach. Aspect's trend-following systems trade in over 120 of the most liquid global futures and forward markets and employ a fully automated system to process and analyse market data as well as idiosyncratic non-price data in order to identify and exploit directional moves (or itrends') in markets. By maintaining comparatively small exposures to any individual contract, Aspect achieves sector and contract diversification. The option aims to minimise unintentional currency exposure.
