What is AlphaCap?
AlphaCap develops and operates complex FX algorithms. The company trades liquid FX pairs like EURUSD, GBPUSD and USDJPY by applying a non-directional approach with almost no correlation to existing asset classes like equities and real estate.
All trades are executed by a diversified set of advanced algorithms hosted in a highly secure and stable server environment. Trading is executed by regulated brokers (CFTC and FSA). Average historic leverage is 1:3 with Sharpe ratio above 2.
The ambition is simple - deliver strong annual performance combined with competitive risk/reward performance measured by Sharpe ratio.
