The Stratsbay Hedge Fund employs systematic strategies for trading exchange listed (primarily BSE & NSE) liquid securities including stocks, stock indices, futures, options and other derivative instruments. The holding period of positions could be from a day to several days. Application of reasonable leverage for attractive positions within permissible norms as laid down by SEBI for Category III Alternative Investment Funds. The Hedge fund investment process employs quantitative directional & long-short equity and derivatives trading strategies with technical sources of excess returns. The Hedge fund investment strategies and portfolio will aim to be neutral with respect to market risk for relative value strategies and carry directional risk to provide additional alpha and a hedge against "fat-tail" relative value model breakdown. The discretionary component of the portfolio would be based on a rigorous fundamental analysis.


The key objective of the Stratsbay Fund is to generate superior risk-adjusted positive absolute Hedge Fund investment returns over time through statistical & fundamental systematic trading strategies while preserving capital, limiting volatility and maintaining liquidity.

Know your Portfolio Risk Measures: Your Portfolio quality is higher even if your steadier returns.
Alpha Alpha is the excess return of the fund over the benchmark.
Beta Beta is a measure of the risk of the portfolio in comparison to the benchmark. A value of Beta <1 means lower risk than the benchmark while a Beta >1 means the risk is higher than the benchmark.
Annual Tracking Error Tracking Error is the divergence of the portfolio in comparison to the benchmark. It explains the excess risk in the porfolio as compared to the benchmark. It should be understood along with the Information Ratio.
Information Ratio Information Ratio(IR) explains the risk adjusted performance of the fund against the benchmark. IR is the ratio of portfolio excess returns (against the benchmark) divided by the Tracking Error. IR>1 is very good as it means that the excess return generated was greater than the excess risk vis-a-vis the benchmark.
Maximum Drawdown Maximum Drawdown is the maximum historical loss realized by the portfolio on a Mark to Market (MTM) basis. It indicates the maximum downside risk over a specified time period. A Maximum Drawdown lower than the benchmark indicates a better risk-adjusted portfolio.
