Enhanced, diversified returns from a distinct source​

At Applied Investment Strategies (AIS), we specialize in creating and managing quantitative investment strategies for our valued investors’ assets.

We manage a long-short strategy that invests primarily in commodities, as well as currencies and fixed income, to capture uncorrelated return and reduce volatility.

The strategy, originally established in 2009 to manage insurance assets, provides the proven ability to improve the risk/return profile of an investor’s overall portfolio.

Key benefits include:

  • Better than commodity market returns
  • Reduced risk
    • Lower volatility than commodities and equities
    • Low/negative correlation with equities and bonds
  • Hedge against inflation

Investment Perspective

Investors continually face the challenge of generating returns in line with their investment objectives while mitigating the volatility from equities and fixed income that can lead to outsized drawdowns. A commodities-based strategy can provide the uncorrelated returns investors seek.
