In the current climate of uncertainty and diminishing returns across most asset classes, investors and asset managers can no longer afford to ignore the scale of opportunities that exist in the currency market.
With over 7 trillion dollars in daily trading volume and access to top-tier Prime liquidity, we are tapping into the one place where the opportunities clearly outweigh those in traditional asset classes, be it fixed income, real estate, equities, or even alternative investments.
In the current low-yield environment, the traditional 60/40 asset allocation is expected to generate lower returns over the next decade in comparison to the performance of the past.
These are truly unprecedented times, yet in the midst of all this turbulence, there are opportunities just as unprecedented.
It is a commonly held misconception among fund managers and investors alike that the high volatility of the currency market creates additional risk.
While the currency market is highly volatile, volatility is not necessarily a risk marker, especially when managed appropriately.
However, despite the vast volume and deep liquidity of currency markets, returns have been shackled by conflicts of interest.
The rampant losses resulting from these conflicts have pushed the currency trading vertical into a higher risk basket than, for instance, equities or fixed income.
The problem is not the risk management models. Those work everywhere else. The problem is not the way the markets are traded. The real problem is how those trades are cleared. The problem is the BROKER.
If there was a way to address this broker-induced leakage of performance, the long-term impact of such a move could be so profound, that an entire generation of fund managers will sit up and take notice, lest they choose to be left behind.
We have a unique approach to currency trading. It is one driven by machine intelligence, speed of order execution, and ability to scale. All this is possible only because we have removed the retail broker in the middle and have gone directly to the top-tier prime liquidity centers and non-bank liquidity providers for clearing of trades.
The sheer speed advantage we’ve created with this approach, combined with our algos, not to mention our proven risk management strategies, puts miles between us and others in the industry.
At PWE Capital, we have developed a habit of inspecting the market from a point of view that’s vastly different to what you will come across in the Financial News Media. It isn’t driven by consensus. It isn’t driven by criticism for the sake of criticism. Our goal is to observe the market from both, fundamental and geopolitical standpoints and raise questions that deserve to be answered.
In doing so, we hope to provide extra value to asset managers, professional HNW investors the opportunity to broaden their horizons and step away from the herd, albeit only for a moment.
