This Is Why Olympus Is the Right Strategy for You
Olympus combines simple investment concepts and fundamental rationales, with leading technology.
Its focus is black swan, or the intention to benefit from extreme down movements in the US equity markets.
Using a diverse pool of quantitative, absolute return investments strategies focused on highly liquid instruments and intraday trading, Olympus can statistically lift total portfolio value over time by providing a true hedge during times of high volatility, liquidy erosion, and falling equity prices.
This means it could balance a portfolio in a down market, providing psychological protection, and provide the piece-of-mind that the balance can statistically lift the entire portfolio for a longer period.
Olympus risk controls lean on its simplicity. When the market has high volatility, particularly large decline, Olympus is positioned to gain. At the same time, it institutes controls to ensure it protects capital in bull market periods.

“It will have a large gain when the market goes into a tailspin and it will do nothing or lose a small insurance cost during peaceful periods. The best way to understand it is as an insurance policy. Olympus is insurance against market meltdown.”
