Summary

Systematic Volatility Arbitrage employs a multi-strategy approach in the equity index volatility market.

Investment Strategy

The Systematic Volatility Arbitrage (VolArb) strategy takes a multi-strategy approach in the equity index volatility market. It trades (1) market neutral calendar spreads in VIX Index futures and (2) VIX Index futures versus the S&P 500 Index futures to arbitrage the equity market volatility risk premium. Additionally, it takes directional intraday momentum trades in equity index futures (3) and VIX Index futures (4). The investment process is systematic and based on Deep Field Capital’s proprietary volatility estimation model, taking into consideration the volatility surface and VIX Index term-structure. Order execution is fully systematic and automated. The strategy is available via a SMA and other structures upon request.

Risk Management

VolArb´s investment strategies are fully automated and model-based. Risk management procedures are implemented into trading strategies via clearly defined, programmed trading rules and limits that are automatically monitored and executed in real-time. All trading rules are frequently re-evaluated, to minimize various risks such as breach of guidelines, portfolio minimum standards, market illiquidity and impact, trade failure, technical breakdown, etc.
