The O'Brien Investment Group (OBIG) Quantitative Global Macro Futures seeks to generate absolute returns from trading an integrated and systematic strategy in futures and options on futures. The strategy will execute trades in a diversified basket of financial and commodity futures markets including global stock indices, global interest rates, currencies, metals, energies, grains, softs and meats. The foundation of the strategy are quantitative models focused on detecting intermediate and long-term trends. Trend following has historically generated "crisis alpha" during times of stress in the markets. Equally important, the strategy also incorporates a series of covered options on futures models with a goal of smoothing out the return stream. The option models will not sell naked short option positions. Only covered options positions, long puts or long call positions will be considered.
