The SGI Cross Asset Trend Following Index utilizes a systematic, rules-based trend-following strategy to provide dynamic exposure to a broad basket of Fixed Income, Equity, FX and Commodity indices in different global regions.


The Index utilizes absolute momentum signals to dynamically allocate across a range of 50 indices on Fixed Income, Equity, FX and Commodity. The absolute momentum is a pure trend-following strategy which consists to be long on positive past performing assets and short on negative performing assets based on 4 signals allowing diversification of the signal to limit the risk of overfitting. The exposure to basket (equi-weighted basket of the 4 trend following sub-indices, one by asset class) is adjusted on a monthly basis, so that the long term realized volatility of the SGI Cross Asset Trend Following Index is close to a volatility target of  3%.
