Today, DBi manages three core strategies that seek to replicate the pre-fee performance of portfolios of hedge funds in the Managed Futures, Equity Long/Short and Multi-Strategy (Equity Long/Short, Relative Value and Event-Driven) categories.
DBi specializes in an advanced form factor-based hedge fund replication that seeks to replicate 90% or more of the pre-fee returns of leading hedge funds and deliver alpha through fee disintermediation.
The Investment Team
Dynamic Beta portfolios seek to match or outperform portfolios of leading hedge funds by identifying, and investing directly in, the key drivers (factors) that explain recent pre-fee performance. DBi’s proprietary Dynamic Beta Engine is based on over a decade of research into the primary sources of returns among Equity Long/short, Managed Futures and Multi-strategy hedge funds. Dynamic Beta portfolios consist only of highly-liquid futures and/or ETFs.
