The AlphaQuest Original (AQO) program is our flagship program with a track record dating back to 1999.
AlphaQuest Original (AQO) is our flagship program that seeks to provide investors with strong absolute returns and hedging characteristics, particularly during periods of volatility expansion and fixed income or equity market corrections. We believe that AQO provides a differentiated approach to classic trend following due to faster reactions to trend reversals and a focus on positive skew. This allows our strategy to benefit when tail risk is most likely to materialize. We believe the strategy is a great portfolio diversifier and acts as a hedge to traditional portfolios, hedge fund portfolios, and CTA portfolios.
