Separate Accounts

Plotinus operates as a commodity-trading advisor. Clients control their accounts on a day-to-day basis, while we overlay our trading decisions. Those looking to test our strategies before making long-term commitments may find comfort with this approach.

We brand our approach as the Plotinus 2π index-hunter strategy. We use a managed futures investment in the S&P 500 Index that seeks to deliver market-like returns with below market volatility. Our strategy is designed to be used as an overlay in conjunction with an investor’s core passive or active S&P 500 exposure, offering the potential to achieve a better risk-adjusted total return to this core equity market holding.

The Plotinus strategy is semi-correlated to the S&P 500 Index; it offers a different pattern of returns on a daily basis. Since its mid-2018 inception, the strategy has demonstrated lower volatility than the S&P 500 Index. Also, the strategy offers the potential to, at times, act as a hedge against the downside risk in an investor’s core US equity-market exposure.

The Plotinus 2π index-hunter strategy provides a new form of active management which can work hand-in-glove with a core S&P 500 Index passive investment.

We do not serve retail investors directly. Additional information is available to qualified investors.
