The Napoleon World Equities AR Dynamix Fund offers exposure to a unique systematic index that is part of the Dynamix family, launched by Napoleon Capital and administered and calculated by Napoleon Index.
The index is based on underlying strategies that are combined using statistics and artificial intelligence, with the allocation optimized and updated quarterly. Strategies are selected using research from Napoleon Capital, as well as from a network of researchers and professionals in quantitative finance.
Strategies are combined based on the world’s most liquid equity indices, targeting the largest companies in Japan, the United Kingdom, and the Eurozone, and also including major companies in the US tech market. The objective is to maximize capital appreciation regardless of market conditions while targeting maximum volatility of 10%.
