This strategy is unusual for two reasons. Firstly, in this age of auto-trading, it is entirely manually traded. Secondly, the trader has experienced only five losing months in seven years, which is truly exceptional. It is a swing strategy using grid trading, achieving low risk by small trade sizes and strictly limiting the maximum number of open trades on only two currency pairs at any time. Assets Under Management $5.5m.

Minimum investment: $6,000
Maximum expected drawdown: 42%

This strategy has been running for four years with a five person trading team. Trading is relatively short term on G7 currencies, AUDUSD, NZDUSD, and Gold. The unusually good performance of this strategy demands a 45% Performance Fee which is already deducted in the growth table above. The trader has assets under management of over $100m with Institutional clients, hedge funds & HNW clients, mostly with their Institutional fund Nordic Tenure which is similar but trades at lower frequency.

Minimum investment: $50,000
Maximum expected drawdown: 40%

The growth figures are shown net of all fees.

Note for existing clients: To invest in a different strategy, please contact our support team at:

The funds in this category are for clients willing to occasionally see the equity of their account fall by up to 50%. Thus an account could have a Balance of $20k with an Equity of $10k, or an account with a Balance of $20k could reduce to a Balance of $10k.

In both cases, the trader would expect to recover the account and resume growth.  Clients would normally allocate only a small percentage of their investment funds in this category, possibly withdrawing profits every few months for capital preservation.
