London, 21 March 2022 – C8, the pioneering fintech platform that offers investors the ability to use direct indexing across all liquid asset classes and investment styles, today announces that Cirdan Capital has issued an Actively Managed Certificate (AMC), C8 Multi-Asset Global Opportunities
(GMAO), based on C8’s Diversified Risk Premia Index.
The certificate’s robustness and long-term continuity are maintained through diversification and the tactical allocation of capital into selected constituent portfolios. The index targets a Sharpe ratio of over 2. The certificate is available to both retail and accredited investors.
The product is made up of five uncorrelated constituent portfolios, active on commodities, rates, equity index futures, FX and US cash equities. These portfolios are diversified by investment style and theme, covering alternative risk-premia, equity risk-premia, ESG, macro and some technical aspects of price action.
Mattias Eriksson, Co-founder and CEO, C8 Technologies said: “In times of volatility and uncertainty, we recognise the need for portfolios with little correlation to traditional equity and bond products. We’re seeing increased demand for diversified risk premia products in response to the current, volatile global markets, driven by inflation concerns and geopolitical uncertainty. C8’s GMAO is a portfolio of portfolios that carefully manages the risk allocation to each underlying portfolio, making it robust and ensuring its longevity. The C8 GMAO was built using the indices and innovative tools available on our C8 platform, then issued as a certificate by Cirdan Capital.”
The certificate is listed on the Frankfurt and Milan stock exchanges from today.
