The macro overlay index aims to deliver positive returns in all market environments. It can take long, short, or delta neutral exposure and has an emphasis on the most liquid equity indices, currencies, interest rates, and commodities. The portfolio includes asymmetric risk/reward positions according to an evidence-based approach. It consists of multidisciplinary components that combine long-term cycle statistics with behavioral economics and technical analysis.

The overlay index has a long-term focus and consists of derivatives. Only margin capital is required for its calculation. It can be overlaid at various exposure levels to other benchmarks/portfolios because the underlying overlay model portfolio is portable.
