Summary

Beach Horizon LLP is a London, UK based long/short systematic quantitative manager. The firm was founded in March 2004 by David Beach, Sanjeev Lakhanpal and Dr Paul Netherwood.

Sectors include equity indices, interest rates, bonds, G10 and emerging market currencies, precious and base metals, energies, grains, meats, softs and commodity spread markets.

Investment Strategy

The Beach Horizon Programme is directional in nature and seeks to take advantage of upward and downward trending markets. The model seeks to maximise diversification whilst reducing risk. The portfolio construction methodology is designed to be adaptive, favouring team players over persistently correlated markets to target diversification. The Horizon Program blends the rigor of scientific method with the automation of trader skill to capture to model market behavior. The Horizon Program uses proprietary techniques for the identification of trends; Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques used to identify market cycles over multiple time frames and pattern recognition techniques used to identify significant turning points in trends. The DSP approach leverages off a large body of scientific and engineering knowledge for the analysis of signal data. The Pattern Approach builds on the experience of David Beach’s 20 years’ of trading using patterns that are unique to Beach Horizon. The combination of the use of rigorous scientific methodology combined with the automation of trader experience creates a robust model that adapts to varying trading conditions. The Horizon Program is directional in nature and seeks to take advantage of upward and downward trending markets. The model seeks to maximise diversification whilst reducing risk. The portfolio construction methodology is designed to be adaptive and avoid trading persistently correlated markets and omit trading markets that do not benefit the risk and diversification profile of the model. The model operates in a framework designed to control all levels of risk including market, operational and business risk. Risk management controls are applied by the system hundreds of times a day to constantly adjust to the targeted level of market risk. Proprietary risk filters are built into the model to automatically adapt to changing market risks including a trend risk function that mitigates the risk of collapsing trends. Beach Horizon uses a bespoke electronic execution platform that combines algorithmic and trader led execution to deliver efficient execution whilst minimising error risk.

Risk Management

Portfolio allocation methodology attempts to manage portfolio risk by determining the best portfolio that maximises diversification and minimises volatility and correlation. Market risk is controlled by a number of filters that reduce risk on when market risk increases and when the risk of a trend reversing in the short of long term. Market liquidity risk is handled by the firms bespoke execution system that allows us to feedback execution information back into the model. This way the model is ‘liquidity aware’ in real-time. Execution risk is minimised by the use of our custom screens and automated execution system. Beach Horizon has a bespoke operational framework using Straight Through Processing and automation to minimise operational risk.
