Proprietary trading has always been a cornerstone of our business. In 2011 we started producing in-house commentaries on markets and in house reports on countries, industries and individual stocks. With the exception of individual stock reports, many of these commentaries and reports are of enduring value and so we have made them available in our commentaries and reports section.
In 2015 we took the decision to evolve into a CTA and offer our services to the private high-net-worth market. Our first objective was to develop a product that offers genuine diversity to private clients, who are typically only long assets. Our second objective was durability. We aim to be around for a long time and so created a low leverage product. Our max leverage is one and a half times book. Our normal leverage is a fraction of that. Most banks operate at well over 20 times book! Finally our third and final objective was to create a positive performance.
Using our own proprietary funds the Great O’Neill began trading in January 2016. We have, and continue to meet, all three of our objectives.
- Low Leverage Low Risk
Our monthly results are available in our results section and are published on a number of CTA industry websites (Autumn Gold, BarclayHedge, IASG, Eurekahedge and HFM).
