Signal Miltch Launches Quant Equities Program

Dec 21 2007 | 10:18am ET

Signal Miltch Quantitative has launched a new managed account program, dubbed SMQ Turbo, based on an equities and exchange traded funds-only portfolio model.

The black box trading program will take trading positions across three time horizons simultaneously, and typically be 50% long and 50% short in mid-to-large cap U.S. equities with the remaining balance in global commodity or currency-based exchange-traded funds. The account’s trading positions have a maximum exposure of typically no more than 1% of the overall account size in any one position.

The program has no lock-up period or management fee requirements and offers daily account access and transparency. “From the investors’ perspective, it’s great because there is complete transparency and 24/7 access to accounts and instant liquidity,” said Shane Rodgers, founder of Signal Capital Management.

Signal Miltch, a joint venture between New York-based Signal Capital and Los Angeles-based Miltch Capital Management, is currently marketing its new product to high net worth individuals and family offices. The minimum investment is $1 million and it charges a 2% management fee and a 20% incentive fee. RBC Capital Markets serves as the program’s prime broker.
