Aquantum Pegasus Zeus Index ™

Bloomberg Ticker: AQUAPEZE (Excess Return), AQUAPEZT (Total Return)


Index Strategy

The Aquantum Pegasus Zeus index is a market-neutral commodity index. It is linked to the performance of an advanced spread trading system and designed to produce attractive absolute returns each and every year. In the past, the index's returns have been uncorrelated to the returns of other asset classes, both traditional and alternative.

The index is denominated in USD and references 13 liquid commodity futures markets from various sectors (energies, metals, agriculture, and livestock).

Based on two fully systematic trading programs, P1 and P2, simultaneous long and short positions in futures contracts with different maturities are established to profit from the existence of convenience yields as well as liquidity and roll premiums. P1 neutralizes a substantial part of the spread risk taken on by P2.

The index's live calculation date (LD) was December 22, 2010.

Excess return (ER) and total return (TR) versions of the index are available.
