i Trend offers the most dynamic and uncompromising hedging concept on the market. A systematic approach in combination with managed futures applied to a wide range of underlyings across a wide range of sectors and markets (interest rates, currencies, stock indices, commodities, ...) allows an exceptional level of diversification with a razor-sharp characteristic:
RETURNS AT THE RIGHT TIME
