Risk Managed Equity Strategies

The Julex risk managed equity strategies strive to outperform the market benchmarks in the favorable market environment while having the flexibility of moving to defensive positions like cash or bonds in the unfavorable market condition. We combine our tactical risk on/off indicator with multi factor stock selection model in the investment process. When the indicator is “risk on”, we invest in a concentrated portfolio of 20 – 40 stocks aiming to outperform the market; when the indicator is “risk off”, we invest in cash and high-quality bonds to preserve capital.
