People, Freedom and Collaboration

We are not academic theorists; we are practical scientists using our skills to hunt for alpha. We don’t view markets through a traditional finance lens. We look for alpha without constraints. We are collaborative and transparent.


AHL Explains

AHL Explains is a video series that has been created to explain key concepts in futures trend following. Narrated by our Chief Scientist, Dr. Anthony Ledford, the intention of these short videos is to bring each concept to life by focusing on principles rather than detail.

Science Based Research

We believe that the best way to extract value from leading minds is to encourage a thoughtful exchange of ideas in an open environment.

When evaluating a trading strategy, it is routine to discount the Sharpe ratio from a historical backtest. The reason is simple: there is inevitable data mining by both the researcher and by other researchers in the past. Our paper provides a statistical framework that systematically accounts for these multiple tests. We propose a method to determine the appropriate haircut for any given reported Sharpe ratio. We also provide a profit hurdle that any strategy needs to achieve in order to be deemed "significant".
