Kettera Strategies Adds Transtrend Diversified Trend Program To Hydra Platform

Mar 8 2017 | 9:47pm ET

Alternative investment platform company Kettera has announced the addition of Transtrend B.V.’s Diversified Trend Program to its growing Hydra platform.

Formed in 1991, Rotterdam-based Transtrend is an asset manager specializing in systematic trading strategies. Its Transtrend’s Diversified Trend Program, which has $5.2 billion in AUM, seeks to profit from trends in a large variety of futures and forward markets across all asset classes − foreign exchange, commodities, interest rates and equity related markets. Transtrend is a unit of Dutch financial services giant Robeco.

The program is particularly known for its non-linear correlation with other trading styles and traditional asset classes, and its capacity to provide strong crisis alpha, Kettera said in a statement. 

“We are excited to be on Hydra and to work with the Kettera team to access new markets and provide investors with high levels of flexibility, capital efficiency and transparency,” said André Honig, head of IR at Transtrend, in the statement. 

“Transtrend is a global leader and innovator in systematic investing and we welcome them to Hydra,” added Jon Stein, Kettera’s CEO. “Hydra will not only make Transtrend’s flagship program more accessible but will give investors the ability to notionally fund access to the program.”

More than 40 investment strategies are now available on Kettera’s Hydra marketplace, a custody-based managed account platform providing institutional investors, family offices, wealth managers and high net worth investors with efficient access to global macro, FX, volatility and managed futures strategies through pooled vehicles.
