Denali

Opportunity now closed

Long only equity strategy that follows a proprietary quantitative process to identify US stocks with positive idiosyncratic price trends. It systematically builds a portfolio of these stocks and applies a systematic risk management framework to this portfolio. The strategy's philosophy is very defensive. Denali only deploys capital when strong uptrends are present. In their absence, like during periods of down markets, it preserves capital by increasing the allocation to cash. The Denali strategy has an asymmetric “long call option” return profile. It cuts short the negative left tail of returns while leaving the positive right tail uncapped.

Matterhorn

Opportunity now closed

Matterhorn uses statistics to take advantage of the price actions of different securities. The strategy invests in financial instruments representing: US equities, US bonds and commodities. The price action of any given security is looked at as a function of equity market volatility. This parameter is then used to define entry and exit prices and the amount of capital to allocate per trade. The downside risk and strategy volatility is mitigated by applying the same investment methodology to different asset classes. The combined strategy then has a reduced drawdown and volatility compared to applying this investment methodology individually to each security. A near-risk parity approach is used to allocate capital to each of the securities that the strategy plans to invest in. The strategy never engages any risk-undefined trade.

Get a Head Start as an Investor With the Right Investment Strategy

An investing strategy follows a set of rules to help an investor achieve their short-term and long-term goals. The type of strategy for investing differs and is mainly dependent on the investor's preferences in engaging with the stock market or other investment instruments. There are many possible routes to follow when looking for a suitable strategy, ranging from actively managed ones to passive investing. 

Outsmart your competitors by investing in lucrative dividend-paying investment plans at CARL.

One of the oldest tricks in the book – famously employed by Warren Buffett – is Value Investing. It is based on a certain mindset to invest in assets that are under-priced by the stock market and their competition. The principle is comparable to only buying items at a discount which are expected to obtain dividend-paying value over time. But markets and investing have changed, making Value Investing a rather old-school approach and at the same time offering different avenues to generate revenue.

Growth Investing is another example. Growth investors aim at increasing their capital by selecting growth stocks. These are typically smaller, unknown companies which are expected to generate above-average growth rates and, as a result, high-yield revenue. But this approach comes at a higher risk as the investment can fall through due to the company failing or due to other soft factors.

Asset Allocation Is Key

Value Investing, Growth Investing, or alternative investing – whichever strategy you chose, you always have to keep asset allocation in mind. The underlying principle seeks to balance risks and rewards of all your investment assets to create a well-rounded portfolio. It keeps in mind an investor's investment horizon as well as the original goals and the general risk tolerance.

Investors who are looking to diversify and reduce overall portfolio volatility are perfectly set up to use CARL's alternatives to reach their investment objectives.

Consider Your Risk Tolerance

Investing always means taking a risk – you don't have to be a finance genius to know that. But how you handle the market's inherent volatility is up to you. You can set yourself up for success by using a well-rounded portfolio covering different asset classes and pursuing short-term as well as longer-term goals. Diversification is key to achieving this. Various investment instruments such as real estate, bonds, index funds and alternatives offer different levels of risk and returns. Keep in mind how much risk you're comfortable with when choosing your investments. By using CARL as your platform for all alternative investments, you have already made the first step into the right direction to greater diversification and the potential for higher returns.

Common Questions

Frequently Asked Questions About Investment Strategies

There are many investment strategies, short- and long-term approaches, various investment instruments, and asset classes – staying informed is not an easy task. Here you'll find answers to some common questions, prepared by experts at CARL.

Conventional categories for investments are stocks, cash, and bonds. Real estate, private equity, most funds, and commodities are usually classified as alternative investments. Strategies dealing with the latter seek to generate revenue from those sources instead of going the more conventional route.

Buy-and-hold is a typical example of a passive investment strategy. This means keeping the invested stocks long-term, disregarding market fluctuations. Passive investors actively select their assets but don't concern themselves with short-term movements since they are in it for the long run.

Indexing means the approach to mimic an index's returns. It is a passive investment strategy as the investor performs according to a buy-and-hold principle to copy a particular equity or fixed-income index's performance.
