APF Managed Forex Accounts
  • Managed forex accounts are becoming an
    increasingly popular way of accessing the forex
    market for retail investors, who might not have
    the time or expertise to trade their own account.
    An investment in a managed forex account provides
    investors with the ability to profit from the
    currency market, having their account managed by
    a professional money manager, whilst at the same
    time having complete access to their fund, 24
    hours a day.

APF Managed Forex Accounts
  • It also provides a good alternative for
    diversification from traditional asset classes.
  • APF Managed Forex Accounts (under APF Trading
    Pte. Ltd.) provide investors with an alternative
    investment at competitive fee charges, aims to
    make absolute positive returns irrespective of
    market conditions, offers immediate access to
    capital and safety of their investment. The
    managed forex account is managed to very strict
    investment criteria, with risk management a
    priority, so that drawdowns and losses are
    minimised, and returns maximised.

APF Managed Forex Accounts
  • Minimum Investment USD 10,000
  • Here is a concise summary of our service
  • Client accounts will be managed by APF Trading
    using a Limited Power of Attorney
  • We manage client accounts for absolute return
    profit objectives.
  • We are compensated by performance fees, not by
    transactions made.
  • We manage individual client accounts. We do not
    have a pool of funds.
  • Client funds are sent to an established forex
    brokerage, not to APF Trading
  • Accounts can be tracked 24/7, for balance,
    equity, statements, transactions, and fees.
  •  APF Trading reserves the right to trade only
    accounts that we deem suitable. Before investing,
    investors should realise that losses will and do
    occur in foreign exchange trading. Please read
    our risk warning for more information.

Trading Strategies
  • APF Trading employs proprietary technical
    systematic trading strategies.
  • The main strategy is a basket of independent
    technical-driven models. Having a basket of
    independent models improves the risk reward
    structure of the main strategy. 
  • Our models are driven primarily by Ichimoku Kinko
    Hyo, DeMark Indicators, Fibonnaci and Intermarket
    Quantitative Models.
  • Capital preservation is key. We adhere to strict
    money management rules in all our trading. 1 or
    less of capital is risked per trade.
  • We seek to generate positive absolute returns by
    trading in spot currencies (mainly G7 pairs),
    irrespective of prevailing market conditions. 

The case for systematic trading in FX
  • In recent years, investor interest in systematic
    FX trading strategies rose markedly. We see this
    as perfectly rational as there are 3 reasons why
    currency markets are potentially more suited for
    systematic trading than other asset classes like
    stocks and bonds.
  • 1) Currency trading decisions are a by-product of
    decisions made in other asset classes for most
    investors. Such includes currency overlay for
    stock institutional investors for example.
    Therefore FX markets typically lag movements in
    other asset classes generating potential for
    systematic predictability.
  • 2) Currencies are uniquely suited to
    macro-economic cycles. One of the best known
    macroeconomic relationships are the highly
    pro-cyclical nature of the Australian dollar and
    the safe-haven characteristics of the Swiss
  • 3) The currency market is highly liquid which
    makes systematic strategies scaleable while
    keeping execution costs under control

Performance Fee
  • Our fee structure is similar to most managed
    futures and managed forex programs. APF Trading
    charges clients solely based upon the performance
    of the trading account. This means that if the
    investor does not see an increase in his
    investment, then APF Trading will not charge any
    fees either. Performance Fees (i.e. a share of
    the profits earned on the investment) are
    subjected to a 'high watermark'.
  • We charge a performance fee of 20.
  • We do not charge an entry fee, set-up fee, or an
    annual management charge to our clients.

High Watermark Calculation
the index is well in a bull trend.
  • The implementation of a 'high watermark' means
    that APF Trading will only receive a Performance
    Fee when the value of a client's investment is
    greater than its previous greatest value. Should
    the value of the investment subsequently drop, we
    will only receive a Performance Fee again once
    the value of the investment has once again
    reached it's greatest value.

  • APF Trading is a trading advisory firm offering
    clients advice on multi-asset trading strategies,
    signals, trading systems, execution services and
    trading platforms. The firm also conducts
    research and technical analysis with a focus on
    Ichimoku Kinko Hyo and DeMark Indicators.
