Welcome everyone to another episode with Brian from QuantLabs.net. Our topic today is the striking performance of systematic strategies hedge funds in the first quarter of 2024. We delve into a recent article from Hedgeweek.com revealing their significant outperformance against other strategies under erratic markets triggered by geopolitical tensions.

These hedge funds, which use algorithms to find investment-worthy market trends, have seen a nearly 9% gain in the first two months, far surpassing the wider 2.6% average, drawing from data offered by Barclays Prime Brokerage Division. This observation aligns with our own analysis, which has identified particular sectors that have outperformed the S&P 500.

However, not all is smooth sailing, the current American market is heavily skewed, notably by NVIDIA. As we explore instruments to invest in, we emphasize prioritizing low volatility to avoid large drawdowns, which can jeopardize your performance. Hence, it is crucial to design a system that will enable you to find a consistent metric for your volatility threshold, ensuring you invest only into suitable instruments.

Despite the volatility of the global market, which impacts different regions and assets differently, the use of systematic strategies results in appreciable gains when greater risk is embraced. Nevertheless, even those funds with lower risk thresholds have also made substantial gains. Lastly, we stress the importance of not basing your trading on opinion or hunches, but on data and strategies instead.
