Transtrend. Market understanding.

Our human capability to filter and interpret markets is our greatest strength.

How can we help you?

An active and adaptive approach

Transtrend is a leading systematic investment manager, specialized in trend-based trading. Our active and adaptive approach is the result of more than 30 years of experience in researching markets and managing assets for our clients — the result of actively moving with the markets.

Our trading program — launched in 1992 — aims to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns uncorrelated to the major asset classes. It has an absolute return objective and does not follow, nor specifically strives to outperform, any benchmark or index. We trade futures, forwards and swap markets globally across multiple asset classes, and have designed our program to capture the broader underlying trends that move these markets.

Celebrating 30 years of looking forward

Our Diversified Trend Program launched in June 1992. Today, 30 years later, we are very proud that we’ve been able to earn the trust of so many clients over so many years.

We thank all our clients and service providers for being on this journey with us and look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come!

Risk Awards 2022

We are very proud to have been named "Quant investment firm of the year” at the Risk Awards 2022 — a very welcome recognition for our team and our Diversified Trend Program. The associated interview with provides an interesting read into last year’s performance and what makes our trading approach different and unique. “A trend is not a price moving from A to B, a trend is something happening in society.
