We share with our investors the actual-to-expected on the number of claims in a period. It can be central in understanding that winning every hand is not possible, but in the long run, the strategy can show significant reward.
We disclose return attribution to our clients in regular reports. Above all, we do not artificially manipulate our returns and are transparent in the calculation process.
