Systematic Global Macro

Our Systematic Global Macro strategy is designed to capture carry, value and momentum risk premia across fixed income, equities, currencies and commodities through a rules-based approach.

Strategy Goals

Parametric and Research Affiliates have joined forces to design a modern approach to the global macro strategy that seeks to deliver diversifying returns to institutional separate accounts without the usual drawbacks of absolute return strategies.

Risk-Controlled    Efficient

We have designed an empirically robust and theoretically sound strategy that seeks attractive uncorrelated returns by harvesting the risk premia of three proven investment styles across four asset classes - in a liquid manner.
The Parametric / Research Affiliates Systematic Global strategy was designed for simplicity and consistency. We disclose our methodology to provide investors with a transparent and predictable experience.
The strategy makes moderate use of leverage in seeking superior results. Low correlation across styles and asset classes helps avoid risk concentration. And human experts monitor risk on an on-going basis.
From the use of a highly liquid investment universe to the application of sophisticated implementation techniques, we’ve created an approach that seeks to pass on more value to investors at competitive costs.
