At Genio Capital, we strive to be different. We work closely with our clients to be a true partner in every aspect of their everyday needs, be it by providing off-the-shelf liquid alternative investment products, tailored portfolio components, ad-hoc analyses or quantitative solutions - or even automated execution. We have a unique platform and offer a first-of-its-kind open architecture, where our tried and tested systematic components can be combined in any way or form that our clients desire.
This means that we offer a wide range of products and solutions - some in our own name, some in the name of our clients. These products can be anything from trend following futures strategies, dynamic risk allocation programs, active equity-long only or market neutral funds - with our without ESG features, to passive index replicating or crypto strategies. All are allocated by our fully automated and machine-learning based allocation algorithm, which means that the approach is effortless, efficient and highly scalable.
It is widely accepted that the Efficient Market Hypothesis does not hold - at least not in its strongest form. There are behavioral anomalies, imbalances and patterns that appear across multiple time-frames - phenomena that can be extracted to generate alpha.
But how do you extract it? Big data, black-box modelling such as neural networks and even basic attempts such as technical analysis, give you the perfect means to overfit random models and rely on spurious relationships that may not make sense or even exist in the first place. This is not our way.
We always start with a solid hypothesis regarding a particular behavioral alpha and how to best extract it. There is no trial and error or random testing of different trend or reversal models and there is no cherry picking or constructive data mining. Instead, we build highly flexible models utilising machine learning, non-linear modelling and stochastic mathematics that have the ability to adapt to changing market dynamics. On the portfolio level, we have a fully systematic and quantitative allocation model that decides what models and alpha to target. We are 100% systematic. That is our way.
We have taken these behavioral theories and developed a unique platform based on our proprietary two-layer approach to adaptive modelling in the form of artificial intelligence. In short, we are breaking down the rather complex financial markets in standardized components that can be flexibly combined into individual programs and systems.
Our strength is that the approach is exactly the same no matter if we are talking about our systematic macro program, our global brands long-biased equity program - or ESG compliant index replication. Everything runs on the same proprietary platform, with the same philosophy and all programs and combinations are always 100% adaptive and responsive to market and regime changes.
The programs can be split into the alternative side with focus on providing alpha, downside protection and in particular diversification. We have a substantial and strong track-record on the futures side, with our programs and components outperforming peers and indices across asset classes and time-periods. On the beta-side, we cover both active and passive strategies, where for example our long-only equity strategies are applied to a range of global equity markets targeting a consistent outperformance compared to their benchmarks. These programs can be offered with or without ESG criteria, depending on the wishes of our clients - and in a variety of structures or mandates.
Due to the unique open architecture, we are able to offer client tailored solutions and programs - all to match their needs. There is no need to reinvent the wheel or spend money on nothing. We do white-label solutions, enabling you to offer your investors unique products in your own name - at the fraction of the cost of building it in-house.
We enable our clients to be competitive, we help them enter new areas of business, mitigate risk and deliver superior returns, we help them meet the future. Execution is fully automated and we can connect to almost any broker in the world. We ensure business continuity and full automation. It is as easy as that.
Our solution is cost efficient! Many asset managers employ a number of analysts and portfolio managers to run vanilla products like long-only active/passive funds, which is fine. But with our unique systematic approach, and by using our well-tried and tested algorithms, we free up these resources to concentrate on more valuable thing – one algo can manage hundreds of strategies and portfolios. Bulk or advanced – it does not matter. Today there is a big demand for passive index funds, for factor investing products, for ESG compliant active funds, and for liquid alternative, hedging products – and the demand is fast increasing. Through our proprietary platform, we can offer any number and variety of key-in-hand solutions to asset managers – all in your name and at a minimal start-up cost.
Our absolute return strategies are based on the identification of original investment ideas derived from investor behavior.
We have a long and strong track-record on the futures side, with our programs and components outperforming peers and indices across asset classes and time-periods.
We offer specialized programs such as our flag-ship PRIMO Systematic Macro Program, EDGE Risk Allocation program, PULSE Short-term Futures program and FOCUS and AXOS programs that are limited to energy and commodities, respectively - and CENTO trading crypto futures. We also offer PRIMO without equity long delta in the form of FROST, which is the perfect portfolio diversifier with a correlation of -0.5 to equity indices. Contact us for more information.
Our long-only equity strategies are a collection of systematic and dynamic models that exploit equity mispricings due to investor behaviors.
The models analyse these anomalies in time-series and cross-sectional data and adapt to changing market conditions using our proprietary learning algorithms and processes.
Our long-only equity strategies are applied to a range of global equity markets and they target consistent outperformance compared to their benchmarks. These programs can be offered with or without ESG criteria, depending on the wishes of our clients - and in a variety of structures or mandates. Contact us for more information.
one single philosophy...
The state-of-the-art, institutional grade, infrastructure is purposely designed and built to be able to automatically handle a wide range of systematic strategies, enabling us to run tailor made or customized solutions just as easily as off-the-shelf programs.
All components are standardized in terms of inputs, volatility and outputs, which makes them easy to combine, compare and evaluate. Once put together in a program, they are automatically allocated by the AI-based allocation algorithm, which brings scalability, persistence and true adaptivity.
Automated execution is carried out by specialized algorithms and all orders are monitored by several layers of fat finger- and watchdog-type limits.
