The Insch Kintore strategy is a fully disciplined and entirely systematic trading strategy that trades gold (as a currency) versus 10 of the largest and most liquid currencies in the world. The strategy is “trend following” in nature and fully automated in terms of trade implementation and execution. Buy and sell signals are generated from price breakouts, volatility and other proprietary signals.
Due to the portfolio and the instrument traded (XAU/10 FX cross rates), Insch Kintore offers extreme transparency and liquidity. It also offers:
Outperformance over equity markets, fixed income markets and gold
Real diversification from equity, fixed income and precious metals
Crisis risk offset for a traditional portfolio
Kintore has achieved exceptionally attractive levels of investment performance with consistent alpha, alongside non-correlated downside deviation when compared with traditional investments.
