Fund Strategy

Investments are made primarily in options and futures instruments traded on exchanges around the world. The allocation between markets is constantly changing depending on the business opportunities offered.

Invest in volatility – ASO aim is to trade and capitalize on the volatility in the equity and bond market. An investment in the strategy is an investment in volatility as an asset class.

High risk-adjusted return and low correlation –  The strategy aims to achieve an annual target return of 10-15% at a lower risk than the equity market and should exhibit low correlation with equity and bond markets.

Efficient diversifier – A direct exposure to volatility can deliver low correlated performance against the equity market as well as other asset classes. An investment in Sigma Opportunities can reduce the overall risk in a portfolio and provide a better return than traditional asset classes.

Alfa Sigma Opportunities is a quantitative hedge fund.



Alfa Sigma Opportunities is a specialty fund according to the Investment Funds Act (2004:46). The Fund is a quantitative short volatility hedge fund focused on trading options and futures on the global futures exchanges. The underlying assets are, but not limited to, equity indices and interest rate instruments. The Fund is denominated in SEK.

The Fund’s objective is to achieve sustained high risk-adjusted returns. In addition, the Fund exhibits a low correlation with equity and bond markets. This means that the Fund value can increase or decrease regardless of the movements on the stock and bond markets.

The Fund’s average annual return target is 10 to 15 percent. It seeks a level of risk at about 5 to 10 percent, as measured by annual standard deviation of monthly price movements (KIID 4). Hence, the Fund is considered to be a ‘medium risk fund’.

The Fund’s assets may be invested in transferable securities, money market instruments, mutual funds, derivatives and on accounts of credit institutions. The Fund’s assets may be invested in such derivative instruments, where the underlying asset consists of commodities, securities, money market instruments, financial indices, interest rates, exchange rates and/or foreign currencies. The Fund, however, is not allowed to take derivative positions to physical delivery.

The investment decisions in various markets are based on quantitative decision models. Accordingly, all investments are made purely on objective grounds. Decision models aim to analyze different market price movements. Risk management, as the limitation of maximum loss for each investment, is an important part of the decision-making models construct. The objective of the decision-making models is to create as smooth return as possible.

The fund is a hedge fund and should not be compared with traditional equity,- interest,- or any other mix fund .

The Fund is a specialty fund. That means that the fund differs from traditional equity-, interest- or mixed funds. The Fund shall therefore not be seen as an alternative to these fund types.

The investment strategy is a short-term model driven trading strategy focused on global options and futures. Positions have an average holding period of 5-10 days. A short time frame for trading, and in highly liquid instruments, reduces volatility and downside risk. Our risk management system is designed to produce consistent returns with controlled volatility instead of periodically enlarged profits. Our proprietary quantitative trading models are a big driver of alpha. We also put liquidity as top priority. Continuous development of current, as well as new, models is an important part of the operations within Sigma Opportunities.

The Fund assumes so-called market risk, as it invests in future contracts with underlying assets being commodities, stock indexes, interest-related instruments and currencies. Other risks that the Fund is exposed to include, for example, credit risks, liquidity risks and currency risks.

As an investment in the Fund is to be considered long term, it is not possible to predict the short-term development of the Funds unit value. The value of an investment in the Fund may both rise and fall. Thus, an investor in the Fund may, when redeeming the units, get back less money than he had invested.
