Quantam’s QLSE Fund looks to expand its managed swaps program
Quantam Long Short Equities, registered with the AMF in February 2015, currently closed to new investors, launched its Total Return Swap platform in 2016. The aim is to offer bespoke, pre-defined and diversified quantitative strategies to Financial and non Financial Institutions, such as Banks, Funds, Family Offices… The Swap Platform allows these programs to be dynamically managed and offers leverage in optimal conditions. The fund managers expect to expand these opportunities in the coming months.
Financière Bach invests in Quantam’s Bond Flex Program
Financière Bach, a French real estate holding company, initiated Quantam’s BFX investment program which invests in 8,000+ investment grade corporate and government bonds. The program is dynamically hedged to limit downside losses to 5% annually, and is offered on swap requiring only a fraction of the investment amount to be held as collateral.
Quantam looks to seed new quantitative investment programs
In line with its past expertise in both systematic strategies and partnerships with external managers, Quantam announces that it is actively seeking seeding opportunities in new quantitative managers. The ability to integrate these investments within the Managed Swap program allows for the establishment of a significant track record whilst avoiding the high cost and regulatory complexity of setting up a dedicated investment vehicle.
Comgest and Quantam promote investment in an emerging market program with integrated overlay mechanism
Since 2012, Comgest’s GEM Flex Fund co-managed by Quantam for its overlay mechanism provides institutional and retail investors with investment opportunities in the Magellan Fund, whilst benefitting from a dynamic overlay to reduce exposure based on market volatility. Rated 5* by Morningstar, AUM stand at EUR 125Mio.
This video illustrates the mechanisms involved in the dynamic hedging of portfolios. The overlay concept creates a parallel portfolio that neutralizes exposure when required whilst not interfering with the stock selection or investment policy of the original portfolio.

This guaranteed capital protection mechanically allows for a drastic reduction of the Solvency Capital Requirement.
Eximium appoints Quantam to protect and optimise its investments.
Michel Baulé’s investment company Eximium that is very active in European Mid and Small Caps, relies on Quantam to operate a dynamic hedging program aimed at protecting its equity portfolio against potential market downturns.

Quantam launches a dynamically managed options based investment program (QUAD)
The QUAD program (QUAntam Diversified) invests in a broad selection of asset classes across multiple geographic areas. It is managed to mechanically limit its monthly loss to 1.5% of the notional amount invested whilst maintaining performance expectations in excess of 5% per annum. The program can be leveraged on demand through total return swaps, requiring the maintenance of a deposit margin set at only 4% of the notional invested over the life of the investment.

Quantam will provide policy holders with a bespoke capital protection through its proprietary Pulsar platform.

Partenariat avec AXA Wealth Europe pour le déploiement des protections Quantam Pulsar
Quantam et AXA Wealth Europe ont signé en octobre un accord de partenariat prévoyant la distribution des contrats de protection personnalisée de portefeuille proposés par Quantam par la force commerciale d’AXA, en France et au Luxembourg. Ces instruments, qui techniquement sont des options de gré à gré délivrées par le fonds Centrale Financière de Quantam, permettent de loger au sein des polices d’assurance-vie luxembourgeoises éligibles (type D) un dispositif de protection qui rembourse au titulaire de la police les pertes éventuellement constatées sur son portefeuille en cas de baisse des marchés.
Le fonds Quantam Diversified Premium: 4ème étoile chez Quantalys
Le fonds qui affiche désormais plus de 3 ans d’existence, a réalisé depuis l’origine une performance de +1.94%, contre -3.73% pour l’EuroStoxx 50 sur la même période et -1.25% d’intérêts pour les placements sans risques (EONIA). Il a obtenu la notation « 4 étoiles » de la part de l’analyste Quantalys. Il confirme ainsi sa pertinence en tant que support régulé pour les placements de trésorerie, avec une insensibilité aux krachs de marché par construction (le fonds n’achète que des primes) et une espérance de gain bien supérieure aux fonds euros ou aux fonds monétaires.
La Centrale Financière de Quantam insensible à la crise
L’année 2020 aura été un crash test en grandeur réelle pour les options de protection délivrées par le fonds Centrale Financière mis en place par Quantam. Les contrats actifs pendant la crise ont parfaitement fonctionné et les clients ayant acheté ces contrats avant le krach ont vu leurs pertes remboursées à l’expiration des protections. De son côté, la Centrale Financière de Quantam, couverte à son tour sur le marché, a immédiatement dédommagé l’ensemble des clients, prouvant ainsi au cours d’un évènement exceptionnel la robustesse de son modèle et la qualité de sa signature en tant que contrepartie financière des contrats.
