    Why Superfund funds?
    Managed futures investments are intended to generate long-term capital growth and provide global portfolio diversification. A primary reason to invest in a managed futures product, such as Quadriga Superfund, is to provide a non-correlated investment to a portfolio of traditional stock and bond investments that has the potential to improve returns and lower the portfolio's volatility. This is possible because managed futures products historically have not been correlated to traditional markets, such as stocks and bonds.

    Superfund funds have a proven track record of performance over the past eleven years in Europe, and more than four years in the U.S. Superfund funds trade more than 100 futures markets worldwide using proprietary trading systems designed and developed by Christian Baha and Christian Halper. The Superfund funds have often produced double-digit returns, even during down markets, due to diversified trades and the ability of Superfund's proprietary trading systems to identify trends, while employing strict risk controls. The past performance of Superfund funds is not indicative of the future results of Quadriga Superfund.

    The recent fluctuation in world markets has proven that long-only equity portfolios generally do not make money during downward cycles. For continued portfolio performance, it is potentially advantageous for investors to own investments that have the potential to appreciate in any economic environment.

    Historically, managed futures investments have had very little correlation to the stock and bond markets. While there is no guarantee of positive performance in a managed futures component of a portfolio, the noncorrelation characteristic of managed futures can improve risk adjusted returns in a diversified investment portfolio. Having the ability to go long and short gives managed futures the opportunity to profit in both up or down markets. In other words, profit or loss in managed future funds is not typically dependent on economic cycles. There can be no assurance, however, that Quadriga Superfund will trade profitably or not incur significant losses.

    Trading system
    Superfund Capital Management makes each Series' trading decisions using fully automated, computerized proprietary trading systems, which trade in more than 100 futures markets, which automatically send buy and sell signals, and constantly monitor relevant risk factors on the traded futures markets in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia. By using an automated system, human emotions are completely eliminated from the capital management process. Superfund’s proprietary trading systems were developed by Christian Baha and Christian Halper, and are licensed on a non-exclusive basis to Superfund Capital Management.


    The above chart is only an indication of the variety of markets traded or that may be traded by Superfund and is not indicative of relative allocations among these markets. The actual allocations among these markets change over time due to liquidity, volatility and risk considerations.

    Superfund Capital Management's strategy is based on the implementation of a four-point philosophy consisting of (i) market diversification, (ii) technical analysis, (iii) trend-following, and (iv) money management. Superfund’s proprietary trading systems scan in more than 100 futures markets worldwide on a daily basis and make the following decisions: whether to establish new positions (long or short), adjustment or placement of stop orders, change in position size based on volatility or change in correlation between markets, and whether to exit open positions. The decision to establish new positions is based on a proprietary algorithm that seeks to identify market trends in advance. This is done by analyzing technical indicators and parameters such as moving averages, bollinger bands, etc. Bollinger bands are technical channel indicators calculated as multiples of the standard deviation above and below a moving average. Because standard deviation measures volatility, these bands expand during volatile market periods and contract during stable ones. Superfund Capital Management believes that the key to identifying potentially profitable trends using technical analysis is in the way these indicators and perimeters interrelate and are combined.

    Before entering new positions, Superfund’s proprietary trading systems define the maximum open risk per position based on market correlation and market volatility. This money management filter is applied after positions have been established on a daily basis per market and adjusts existing stop order levels or reduces position size if proprietary pre-defined risk measures are met or exceeded due to market volatility or changes in market correlation. Superfund Capital Management uses the technique called trend following to identify these changes. Positions are exited either by being stopped out or adjusted as a result of the changes in volatility or market correlation discussed above. There can be no assurance that the trading models will produce results similar to those produced in the past.
