Deuterium Global Dynamic Allocation Fund

About the fund

The fund’s objective is to generate positive returns over the course of the global business cycle, which typically runs for five years; by pursuing a policy of active allocation across asset classes and global markets - global equities (countries, regions and sectors), debt (and durations), currencies, commodities, property and cash. Decisions are driven by a global, long-term and dynamic asset allocation model that is adjusted from time to time by short-term tactical asset allocation shifts in anticipation of changing market, fiscal and political conditions.


The core of the investment process lies SmartMarkets, Deuterium’s proprietary analytics system developed and refined over more than two decades. SmartMarkets considers and filters millions of data series in order to model economic forecasts for 27 countries across 28 macro variables. SmartMarkets then combines these forecasts with separate models for central bank policy, market valuation, and price trends to predict directional outcomes for equities, bonds, currencies and commodities over a 4-6 week timeframe.
