North Asset Management's MaxQ Fund distinguishes itself from other global macro funds by focusing beyond just the G3 markets, says the company's chief investment officer and portfolio manager George Papamarkakis. This, combined with its active trading approach, has helped the fund through the volatility in 2011 and so far in 2012.
The fund was up 25.19% last year. Papamarkakis says having a short-term investment horizon meant the fund was not caught out by reversals in the market.
