Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options, and foreign exchange ("forex") is substantial.

CTA Introduction

80 Capital specializes in global quantitative trading.

Our first program Helium program was launched in February 2012 by Philippe Azoulay while he was working for Deutsche Bank (DB). DB subsequently seeded his program Helium with $50 million in 2013.

Our program has a unique and innovative approach to trading futures. Rather than applying filters on the futures contracts directly, Helium applies its filters on synthetic markets, which are combinations of futures contracts, capturing phenomena arising not only from price movements but also from correlations moves between the futures contracts. Also, another significant differentiating factor is the portfolio allocation methodology based on error minimization.

This different approach is evidenced by Helium’s strong track record: it has substantially outperformed its peers in a challenging market environment achieving around 6-13% of annualised outperformance since Feb. 2012 against major managed futures indices.
