Conquest STAR UCITS Fund launched on the MontLake UCITS Platform

Conquest Capital LLP and ML Capital have announced the launch of the Conquest STAR UCITS Fund, a systematic absolute return trading strategy hosted on the MontLake UCITS Platform. MontLake is a leading independent platform for UCITS funds that provides investors with access to a range of liquid, transparent and regulated investment products domiciled in Dublin.

Conquest STAR is an all-weather, pure alpha, short-term systematic trading strategy. The program has been designed to capture independent alpha from short-term trading opportunities regardless of the risk environment in both “risk-seeking” and “risk-averse” regimes. The fund uses 4 sub-strategies employing dozens of models to dynamically allocate risk based on the Conquest Risk Aversion Index.

This all-weather, absolute return short-term trading strategy has been carefully constructed and perfected by Conquest over the past 7 years, combining their best performing systems among 300+ proprietary models they have developed since 1999. Trading the world’s largest and most liquid markets including equity indices, fixed income & G10 currencies, as well as, across a diversified set of geographies and timeframes. This has enabled the STAR strategy to generate highly attractive risk-adjusted returns with record low correlation to hedge Funds, CTAs and traditional asset classes since inception.

Speaking with Marc Malek, Founder/Portfolio Manager of Conquest Capital said: “Conquest STAR is a strategy that is the culmination of our best ideas. 17 years of research on identifying sources of alpha versus beta and understanding the risk environment have enabled us to design a strategy that is a pure alpha, all-weather offering.”
