The Triple3 Volatility Advantage Fund has been named the Lonsec Innovation Award Winner for 2015 at the 13th annual SuperRatings Fund of the Year Awards.

The Lonsec Awards highlight and recognise excellence in the industry. To choose the winners Lonsec uses a mix of qualitative and quantitative measures to identify high achieving funds managers and investment products that stand out from their industry peers. 

The Lonsec Innovation Award aims to identify funds which stand out from the pack – particularly those which have tackled investment solutions from a different angle than most peers, or are simply doing it better or more efficiently. 

Simon Ho, CEO of Triple3 Partners, says the Triple3 Volatility Advantage Fund

aims to generate long-term absolute returns with its volatility-focused strategy to capture alpha from highly liquid exchange-traded VIX options, which are negatively correlated to equities.

“With volatile markets set to continue to challenge investors, the Triple3 Volatility Advantage Fund fills an important gap in the market – that of real and sustained portfolio diversification. 

Andrew McKinnon CEO of Grant Samuel Funds Management, which distributes the fund in the Australian market, says the award is recognition of the success of the Fund’s investment approach.

“Simon Ho and his team have spent six years developing their volatility strategy, including the quantitative forecasting techniques and portfolio algorithms that underpin the strategy used in the Triple3 Volatility Advantage Fund. This award is a vindication of the success of that model, and the innovative nature of the fund.” 

Triple 3 Partners was established in 2009 to provide volatility strategies to institutional clients, including alpha strategies, volatility overlay and volatility research. In addition to a role as an investment manager, Triple3 is a dedicated volatility research house and sells its research to professional investors as well as consulting to stock exchanges around the world.
