HONG KONG, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OP Investment Management Ltd. ("OPIM"), Asia's leading hedge fund platform, is partnering with Spectron Capital to launch Spectron FX Fund, which is Cayman-domiciled and for professional investors only. The absolute return fund will deploy fundamental, macro FX strategies expressed through G10 currencies.

Founded by Mr. Chuan Hong, the Fund will deploy two strategies. The first uses a top-down approach by analyzing macroeconomic data to monitor currency volume, prices, and cycles to trade currency spots. The second is a tactical strategy that will incorporate technical factors and examine historical price patterns to determine the strength of market trends affecting G10 currency pairs.

Signals generated from both strategies will help determine the holding period of the positions. In the short term, these can be intraday, while medium to long term positions can range from three to six months.

"Last year, the economic outlook for all major economies worsened, so central banks became cautious about changing interest rates, remaining more dovish this year. As a result, the market expects lower volatility in G10 currencies, so the fluctuation of these currency prices will stay in a tighter range," said Mr. Hong. "Our dynamic strategy will take advantage of these sudden price movements during these currency cycles."

Mr. Hong is the founding member of Spectron Capital, and the sole portfolio manager of Spectron FX Fund, having built his track record on over 6 years of proprietary trading experience in FX. Mr. Hong received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry from Imperial College London.

"Spectron FX Fund is a great opportunity for Asian allocators to gain global exposure to macro themes outside of traditional equities, a strategy which has the tactical flexibility to generate absolute returns in different economic cycles and market conditions," remarked Alvin Fan, Chief Executive Officer of OP Investment Management.
