NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring Valley Asset Management, a newly formed alternative investment manager specializing in the development of quantitative futures-based trading strategies, has launched the SVAM Tactical Trend Portfolio.
The Tactical Trend Portfolio seeks to generate superior absolute and risk-adjusted returns across a diversified blend of more than 50 futures markets, including stock indices, interest rates, currencies, energies, metals and agricultural commodities. The Portfolio utilizes multiple market inputs and a host of technical indicators to identify directional trading opportunities across a broad spectrum of time frames, including short-term, intermediate-term, and long-term horizons. Interestingly, the Tactical Trend Portfolio employs a systematic process to dynamically balance portfolio exposures across more than 30 distinct trading models and seeks to ensure optimal exposures across the prevailing alpha opportunity set. The tactical nature of the Portfolio's exposures is designed to generate returns in both expanding (e.g., pre-2009) and contracting (e.g., 2009 – present) volatility regimes, and relevant risk parameters are monitored and constrained in real time.
With assets under management just over $15 million, SVAM is currently accepting client assets via managed account. For a more detailed discussion regarding SVAM and the Tactical Trend Portfolio, including access to a multitude of performance analytics, please contact John Ryan at (212) 592-9300 or via e-mail at [email protected].

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
