A good management should be able to maintain a sustainable performance by making an optimal combination of assets.

10. What does backtesting mean?

A backtesting or historical simulation is a process where the fund manager tests the robustness of an investment strategy using a particular data window. The simulations allow us to understand the nature, profile, and mathematical expectation of the strategy.

11.What is a lombard loan?

It is a credit granted by the counterparty where the client has his account, which has as collateral the investment portfolio. Its amount will depend on the securities held in the portfolio. That is to say, it is possible to leverage the portfolio according to the quality and the securities held as underlying. With an intelligent use of this leverage, returns can be improved at certain market junctures.

12. What is a limited Power of Attorney?

It is a contract through which the client authorizes its regulated advisor, in this case Bendio, to execute an agreed investment strategy, excluding the possibility of making deposits or withdrawals in the holder’s account. The main advantage of having a Limited Power of Attorney ¨LPA¨ is that the advisor or portfolio manager will be able to make decisions more quickly and take advantage of opportunities that are framed within the client’s risk profile.
