Alternative Investments with SaxoSelect Trading Strategies
SaxoSelect Trading Strategies is an elite service that lets you follow the strategies of experienced investors exclusively selected by Saxo Bank.
Markets are evolving and investors are seeking alternative ways of investing. Accessing an alternative investment, such as the expertise of a hedge fund manager, is not simple. For most of us, buying a mutual fund is the only option and this comes with investment restrictions for the fund manager. For this, we have the SaxoSelect Trading Strategies. Making use of CFDs and forex instruments, we have carefully selected Strategy Managers that vary in investment style, some taking opportunistic trades, others making use of technical analysis, systematic models and volatility. These alternative investment portfolios are available to you, in your own account.
Benefit from the knowledge of experienced investors and gain exposure to different asset classes and alternative investment styles to diversify your overall portfolio.
Start or stop investing at your discretion. Thanks to our Investment Shield you can also protect the value of each of your SaxoSelect investments.
A Trading Strategy is an investment solution for those who are looking for speculative investments but lack the expertise or the time to implement and manage such investments themselves.
Saxo Bank has pre-selected a small number of Trading Strategies ran by strategy managers – whom we call Strategy Providers - and designed a fully automated solution for you to invest alongside your chosen strategy (or strategies) and keep you in control in a fully transparent way.
"How do I start investing in a Trading Strategy?"
Investing in a Trading Strategy is like investing in a fund: pick your strategy, click “Invest” and follow the online instructions to complete the investment. The funds to be invested will be transferred from your main account to the newly created investment account automatically when you complete your investment.
"Do I need to open a new account to invest?"
No, that is not required. When you complete your investment in a Trading Strategy, a sub-account dedicated to that strategy will automatically be created under your existing Saxo Bank account.
"Are Trading Strategies available for everyone?"
Trading Strategies are classified as a high risk investment proposition and as an investor you need to show that you are a suitable investor for the service by taking a MiFID suitability test before you can begin trading.
"Can I trust the performance statistics of the strategies?"
The statistics describing each strategy are based on actual trading data from real money accounts. Performance returns and drawdown statistics, for example, are calculated on the account value, thereby taking into consideration both closed and open trades.
