professional portfolio management for private investors

 we apply science to investing

 we believe in Tactical Asset Allocation

el faro private fund limited  applies a scientific approach like
Tactical Asset Allocation
to finance with the aim to develop quantitative and systematic investment strategie.

Tactical Asset Allocation

Why do we believe in it?

 Tactical Asset Allocation strategies invest in broad asset classes like stock indices (ex. SPY), bond indices (TLT), and gold (GLD). Tactical Asset Allocation strategies tend to trade once a month or less, capturing major market trends and ignoring day-to-day noise.
 Unlike traditional buy & hold, Tactical Asset Allocation aims to maximize returns and minimize losses by dynamically increasing/decreasing allocation to assets expected to outperform/underperform.
 Tactical Asset Allocation differs from other active strategies in that the concepts underpinning Tactical Asset Allocation have proven effective for decades.
 All of the strategies that we trade are both quantitative and systematic, meaning well-defined mathematical rules govern exactly when and what to trade. 
 all strategies trade at the market close and trades are executed using large, liquid ETFs.
