Delta1trader Technology AG is a Swiss Asset Manager, headquartered in Zug and regulated by VQF. We specialize in providing systematic trading solutions, managing both proprietary and client accounts. We actively participate in the FX, Futures and Options markets.
Our vision is to become the leading Swiss Asset Manager in the Managed Futures and FX Hedging segment, measured in absolute percentage return on equity for our clients.
We maintain a portfolio of systems and models which we have developed over the years to determine which trades to take.
We understand that the markets are very dynamic. It’s a never-ending improvement process to do well over the long term and we are always committed to have the ultimate edge to the markets.
Our trading systems are continuously updated to adapt to changing conditions. We develop new models every week, to get a slight edge and stay on top of the latest developments in the markets.
All models are tracked daily. They are structured on a rotation basis, focused on timing in the markets.
Models that do not perform, get less allocation of risk. Sometimes, a model can also be placed on the side-line if performance drops below a certain threshold.
Models that perform well, have more risk allocated in that timeline. This way, risk parameters are constantly adjusted and working to achieve an optimal strategy. We work vigorously to avoid Alpha Decay – the concept that systems deteriorate over time as AI evolves and strategies become obsolete.
We view trading as a high-performance sport. Top performers have a clear goal every day in order to be the best in their segment and rise above the rest.
