This Is Why Victory Peak Is the Right Strategy for You

Victory Peak is a long/short equity investment fund. The goal of the strategy is to deliver long-term capital appreciation through superior risk-adjusted returns in healthy and distressed markets. Simple things are more robust and better suited for adversity. Complexity leads to brittleness and failure under pressure. For this reason, while sophisticated, Victory Peak by CARL embraces simplicity and durability. Its quantitative approach to alpha generation is to:

  • Identify the prevailing behavioral regime of the market
  • Quantify the successful set of probabilities matching the regime
  • Exploit the inefficiencies ahead of other investors

This is a long/short equity strategy with 9 systems that compete for capital in a hierarchy-based approach. It aims to determine the current market regime and apply capital only when the corresponding probabilities show a positive mathematical expectation.

This means Victory Peak buys with a strong market, while if the market is showing signs of distress it can also decide to short, hedge or buy volatility. In this way, it works to mathematically take advantage of all market conditions, and provides a low correlation to the equities market overall. 

Victory Peak uplifts simple investment fundamentals through proven technology, creating its market durability and general success.
