Kettera Adds Transtrend's Diversified Trend Program

March, 2017

Kettera Strategies LLC and its Hydra marketplace, a global platform providing investors with manager access, notional funding, daily transparency and twice monthly liquidity to established and emerging alternative asset managers, today announced that the Diversified Trend Program of Transtrend B.V., an asset manager specialized in systematic trading strategies, has been added to the fast-growing Hydra platform. 

Established in 1991 and based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Transtrend has over 25 years of experience in researching markets and managing systematic trading strategies for its clients. Transtrend’s Diversified Trend Program ($5.2 billion in assets, including notional funds) seeks to profit from trends in a large variety of futures and forward markets across all asset classes − foreign exchange, commodities, interest rates and equity related markets. The program is known for its non-linear correlation with other trading styles and traditional asset classes, and its capacity to provide strong crisis alpha.

“We are excited to be on Hydra and to work with the Kettera team to access new markets and provide investors with high levels of flexibility, capital efficiency and transparency,” said AndrĂ© Honig, head of Investor Relations at Transtrend.   

“Transtrend is a global leader and innovator in systematic investing and we welcome them to Hydra,” said Jon Stein, Kettera CEO.  “Hydra will not only make Transtrend’s flagship program more accessible but will give investors the ability to notionally fund access to the program.”   

More than 40 investment strategies are available on the Hydra marketplace.
