NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring Valley Asset Management LLC ("SVAM"), an industry leading alternative investment manager specializing in the application of quantitative investment strategies to the global futures markets, was awarded a U.S. CTA (Commodity Trading Advisor) Performance Award by CTA Intelligence during ceremonies held at 583 Park Avenue in New York City on February 16, 2017.
CTA Intelligence, one of the leading news sources for the managed futures community, awarded its highest honor to Spring Valley Asset Management's flagship SVAM Tactical Trend Portfolio in the category of Best Emerging Manager. This accolade marks the second win for Spring Valley Asset Management, coming in only its second year of trading and following closely on the heels of winning HFM Week's 2016 award for "Best CTA Newcomer". The firm was also named as one of only 12 "Future Stars to Watch in 2016" by CTA Intelligence.
"We are delighted to accept the 2017 CTA Intelligence U.S. Performance Award for Best Emerging Manager," said John Ryan, SVAM's founder and Managing Principal. "Recognition by such an esteemed publication not only serves as a testament to the risk-adjusted performance SVAM has delivered to its clients over time, but also to the quality and depth of infrastructure of the organization as a whole."
The SVAM Tactical Trend Portfolio pursues a multi-strategy approach to trading across a diversified blend of futures markets, including global stock indices, interest rates, currencies and commodities. The portfolio dynamically allocates exposures based upon a proprietary assessment of prevailing market conditions (e.g., expanding versus contracting volatility, increasing vs. decreasing correlation, etc.) and allocates across multiple models (totaling in the aggregate more than 100) and timeframes (including short-, intermediate- and long-term horizons) in order to achieve compelling risk-adjusted returns, regardless of the overall environment for traditional investments.
The CTA Intelligence U.S. Performance Awards recognize those alternative investment managers who consistently demonstrate a "best of breed" approach relative to their peers. Award decisions are based primarily on performance, combined with other qualitative and structural criteria, and winners are selected by a panel of judges comprised of representatives from CTA Intelligence, leading institutional and private investors and other industry experts. Only those CTAs and funds of funds with an advisory team or management company based in the United States or Canada are eligible.
