Watercourse Macro Fund SP

Investment Objective

The objective of the Fund is to generate absolute returns through the use of a directional global discretionary macro strategy, capitalising on trading opportunities driven by sentiments and positioning as well as investment opportunities driven by macroeconomic factors.

Investment Strategies

The Investment Manager adheres to a disciplined, trading-focused, ideas-oriented, theme-centred process focused on understanding key drivers of markets and economies in the Asia Pacific region, US, and Europe. The investment process is designed to identify and anticipate tactical trading opportunities, as well as strategic investment themes.


The Investment Manager will express trading views in the Fund by taking long and short positions in highly liquid, transparent, easy-to-price instruments across a range of asset classes, focusing primarily on equities, commodities, bonds and currencies. The investment instruments traded will primarily be liquid, listed futures and options and liquid currency forwards and options.


The Investment Manager believes that macro investment opportunities are subject to frequent and sudden shifts. In order to take advantage of these shifts while mitigating risk of significant capital loss, the strategy employs a dynamic approach to capital allocation. There is no minimum or fixed allocation to any one asset class, geography or investment theme and the Fund’s exposures will be actively managed.
