Quantitative Investments

Quantitative Investment Strategies provides portfolio diversification from mainstream equity and bond markets. Our strategies invest across alternative assets, managed futures and smart beta.

Our Quantitative Investment Strategies team provides liquid exposure to a range of diversifying investment strategies and styles. These can complement traditional investments.

By offering investors access to sources of return separate from equity and bond markets, we help to improve portfolio diversification. This reduces sensitivity to equity-market declines.

We focus on a specific range of investment strategies. Our goal is to make liquid alternatives more accessible by providing institutional-caliber strategies and service in cost-efficient vehicles.

Our investment professionals are highly experienced. They have spent many years developing, investing in and managing alternative investment strategies. They know how alternative strategies perform in different market situations and interact in a portfolio. QIS has a long track record, dating back to 2007.

Funds offered in Luxembourg obtain exposure to following strategies: 

The Credit Suisse Managed Futures Strategy systematically provides exposure to market trends across asset classes, geographies and time horizons.

Uncorrelated to traditional markets, Managed Futures aims to generate profits during periods when growth-risk-exposed assets decline significantly. This profile makes it potentially a good portfolio diversifier that can help reduce overall portfolio risk and improve performance, especially in stressed market scenarios.

Using only liquid securities, the Credit Suisse Liquid Alternative Beta Index seeks to replicate the return of the overall hedge fund industry, as represented by the Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index.

The Credit Suisse Liquid Alternative Beta (LAB) Index reflects the combined returns of the individual LAB strategy indices – Long/Short, Event Driven, Global Strategies, Merger Arbitrage, and Managed Futures. They are weighted according to their respective weights in the Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index.
