We believe world markets require active risk management to avoid large losses and directional trend systems to position capital in profitable price trends. ASYMMETRY® Global Tactical objective is a positive asymmetric return profile that fits within investor’s tolerance for risk and desired return over both bull and bear markets. An asymmetric return profile is a total return that exceeds its downside risk.

Shell Capital Management, LLC has one of the longest and strongest actual track records pursuing absolute returns through active risk management and tactical investment decisions across a global universe of multi-asset exchange traded securities (ETFs, etc).

ASYMMETRY® Global Tactical is an unconstrained, flexible, adaptable, go-anywhere global tactical strategy without the limitations of a fixed benchmark. Rather than track a benchmark, our objective is to compound capital as much as possible within our risk tolerance. Even though we don’t intend to track an index, we can compare the performance to the alternatives to understand its risk and return profile over a range of market conditions.


ASYMMETRY® Global Tactical may compliment or replace strategic asset allocation. The fact sheet compares it to the Dow Jones Global Moderate Asset Allocation Index, which is rebalanced monthly across 14 indexes to create a global allocation of 60% stocks and 40% bonds. We consider this fully invested index long-only “pure beta”. The Dow Jones Global Moderate Allocation index does not reflect any fund fees, trading costs, or advisory fees.

ASYMMETRY® Global Tactical may be considered a transparent and liquid alternative to hedge funds, especially global macro or global tactical trading. We include a comparison to the Barclay Hedge Fund Index to demonstrate a comparison to “pure alpha”. The Barclay Hedge Fund Index is a measure of the average return of all hedge funds (except Funds of Funds) in the Barclay database. It includes multiple strategies including Long/Short, Global Macro, Event Driven, Arbitrage, Multi-Strategy, etc. The index is net of fees of several thousand reporting funds.

Investment results are probabilistic, not a sure thing. There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will be successful. Investing involves risk including the potential loss of principal a client must be willing to bear. No investment strategy can guarantee a profit or assure against loss. Risk should be managed, directed, and controlled, but such tactics are not guaranteed. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
