Background

Independent View (IV) is an investment management company founded in 2012 and based in the Netherlands. The two managing partners have worked together for more than 17 years with an excellent track record in developing quantitative strategies whilst building one of the world’s largest and most successful proprietary trading firms. After a successful career they had the ambition to start their own firm, launching a systematic quantitative investment fund.

Investment Profile

We aim to generate positive absolute returns in all market conditions with low correlation to individual asset classes. We have a quantitative and systematic investment approach, investing in exchange traded futures with holding periods between days and weeks. We systematically combine 3 dynamic strategies: momentum, volatility and term structure. The sub-strategies trade global markets and have a low correlation to each other.

Risk Management

IV actively manages risk on various levels. This includes maximum position limits, dynamic portfolio optimization, stress testing and volatility targeting. We aim to realize 10% annualized volatility and we follow a systematic drawdown policy, reducing risk when we reach predefined limits.
