Mr. Thorup explained a little about his investment philosophy in creating risk-adjusted returns in the currency markets: “When evaluating individual trading strategies and how they perform over the medium to long term, we monitor and assess the skills of the trader in generating returns based on their trading styles and how this fits within our overall strategy. This way, we source traders that are capable of consistently generating returns in varying market conditions, instead of seeking specific strategies that perform well only in the current market environment. Successful strategies are then appraised within the portfolio selection process to qualify the strategy and verify the returns.”
