Formerly known as Concentrated US Equity Long Short

This is a hedged equity strategy. Our equity portfolio is invested only in large cap US equities that Alpha DNA believes will out-perform Wall Street's expectations for growth in EPS and Revenue. Alpha DNA uses machine learning and alternative data sources to optimize its stock selection. The portfolio is actively managed and rebalanced regularly. The portfolio also includes a hedge using put options on an ETF that tracks the S&P 500. The hedge is intended to provide downside protection in the event of a material market decline.
