The objective of the Equity Trend Program is to achieve long-term capital appreciation with controlled risk, primarily through trading on the world's organised equity markets. The trading style can be qualified as systematic long/short equity, an approach that Transtrend believes is unique among long/short equity hedge funds.
Transtrend's Equity Trend Program is a quantitative and systematic investment strategy. It attempts to exploit price patterns in equity markets worldwide by taking directional positions in a large number of equity markets, either outright or in combinations. The Equity Trend Program may take long and short positions in individual stocks, stock certificates, American depository receipts, global depository receipts, contracts for difference - a special type of equity swap - and other types of equity-related derivatives.
