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

Aequam Capital is an asset management firm founded by Arnaud Chrétien and his partners. It is registered and regulated by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (“AMF”) - French Securities Regulator - and registered with the NFA-CFTC in the United States.

Based in Paris, France since 2010, we strive to help qualified and institutional investors reach their investment goals by offering our unique range of managed futures, the Aequam Diversified UCITS fund, custom mandates and Smart Beta products with exposure to the main equity, bond, currency and commodity markets, to generate superior long-term risk-adjusted returns.

Investment process
Aequam Capital believes that the main contributor to performance is often rooted in risk allocation systems. Unlike most other asset managers, which try to make fundamental economic predictions, we focus on capturing alpha through our proprietary quantitative investment process (“DyNA”) targeting optimal risk allocation. We invest in high-momentum assets with low-risk characteristics to tap into market cycles, and to avoid risk concentration and market correlation.

Research
The DyNA systematic approach is the product of extensive quantitative research, drawing on the broad experience and synergies generated by our fund managers, researchers and risk managers, and has been applied successfully to multiple asset classes. Aequam Capital’s investment ideas are tried and tested and have to make common financial and economic sense before they are implemented. Over time, this method delivers solid long-term profits for you at an acceptable level of risk.

Aequam Capital’s governance and full understanding of the legal and regulatory challenges of the industry, combined with the value created by our research and investment process, help our clients achieve their goals and build a long-term relationship based on mutual trust.
