We have stated that we conduct our business in a very different way to most in our industry which is much more beneficial to the client as it aligns our interests with theirs. So, whilst targeting exceptional montly returns, what exactly is Alcral doing to justify those claims?
Two Dynamic Strategies with Risk Management
Two dynamic strategies - conservative and moderate, executed by a variety of experts ensuring strict adherence to pre-determined risk criteria which are constantly monitored by our risk management team. This is evidenced by our implementation of rigid Stop Loss strategies of 15% (Conservative) and 30% (Moderate) meaning 85% and 70% of capital respectively is not normally placed at risk.
The implementation of a Security Reserve balance on the Investor’s account to be used when monthly returns are not as high as expected or if there has been a loss to capital. From opening the account, we roll in part of the profits earned each month to build this reserve up to a balance of the equivalent of 10% of the invested capital. For example for an investment of EUR100,000 we would build a reserve of EUR10,000. It is not our intention to apply our Management Charge (see below points) until this 10% threshold has been achieved. In future months, if we deem necessary, we will use this reserve to support the targeted monthly return or to replenish any losses to capital.
Simplification of Fees
We condense many of the usual fees such as take-on, management, performance into one basic Management Charge which may only be applied in certain circumstances.
Prioritising Client returns over Fees
Our monthly targeted return to investors is well defined. We will not take our Management Charge if our monthly return does not exceed our monthly target to clients. Our system is structured so that we may only apply our Management Charge in an upwards direction above monthly targets, therefore the investors return will always be exempt of the Management Charge.
Alcral physically pays out the monthly investment returns to its clients therefore being at immediate disposal – we do not roll them in or lock them up for any period. Similarly, there is no minimum investment period – we usually require just 7 days notice to be able to wind up positions, calculate profits and return funds.
By operating managed accounts the investor retains constant access to his account as well as total transparency. Alcral never receives client funds directly to invest and only operates under a Limited Power of Attorney, thus providing an extra layer of security.
Low Entry Level
For an investment that carries all these benefits, advantages and security, our entry level investment is set remarkably low at EUR100,000.
