IMPLEMENTATION


Portfolio Construction

Portfolio construction, together with return generation and execution, is a vital aspect of building a sound investment program. It requires robust data and developed statistical methods which CFM has honed over many years.


Systematic Risk Management Based On In-House IT Infrastructure

Its IT/Data infrastructure has been specifically designed for quasi-real-time risk evaluation. So while the trading patterns are slower in the Alternative Beta strategy, regular updates of positions and market condition indicators are important in building a reliable risk control infrastructure.


Robust Operational Risk Control

While certain risk monitoring tools are embedded in the trading systems and maintained by the front office teams, CFM also maintains a dedicated, independent risk team, whose mandate is to independently validate financial risk estimates and to independently impose operational risk limits.


Industrialized, Large-Scale Data Processing

CFM's data team is responsible for collecting, cleaning, manipulating, and managing terabytes of incoming data every day. CFM currently monitors approximately one million instruments.
