About Hasenbichler and the H-Square Trading Strategy

The H-Square strategy is a systematic medium-term trend following program which launched in September 2007. The strategy is based on technical analysis and primarily uses futures, foreign exchange and LME forwards. The H-Square strategy focuses on a number of basic principles that seek to recognize and find patterns, break-outs and volatility changes to capture profitable trading opportunities. The program differentiates itself from other trend following programs by using a unique "Rotational Approach" that reduces the drawdown risk from sharp market reversals by limiting the amount of open positions and selecting only the strongest signals in combination with a disciplined investment approach and a high emphasis placed on risk management.

Dr. Bernd Hasenbichler has been managing systematic trend following strategies under the Hasenbichler group of companies since 1990 and is a veteran in the commodity trading advisory business in Europe. Hasenbichler Asset Management Inc. was incorporated in Nassau, Bahamas on December 7th, 1994. A team of five across two offices in Vienna, Austria, and Nassau, Bahamas, supports operations under the parent company Hasenbichler Holding Ltd.
