Investment Philosophy

Our philosophy

Whatever the market condition, we emphasise on generating returns on a steady basis over the medium to long-term view. This ability gives us a strong competitive edge and is one of the reasons investors are attracted to VESBOLT.

We believe in being adaptable and patient. The global markets are constantly changing and although one may have had success in a particular industry, sector or asset class, it’s no guarantee of being able to continually stay ahead of evolving trends.

That’s why we continually develop new investment strategies that cater to any type of market environment and condition. We provide our clients with access to specialised markets where the potential rewards far outweigh the risks. Given sufficient time, we believe that these promising investments will bear fruit. The key is to remain patient, which is necessary to minimise risk.

Observing patiently, reacting swiftly

Investment Strategy

To make the best of every profit-generating opportunity, we constantly monitor the markets, adjusting our strategies as needed to ensure optimum results. Our traders work closely together, utilising their individual talents and experiences to bring different perspectives to a discussion. All ideas and innovations are explored to ensure that every challenge is met with the best solution.

We invest mainly in high-quality, short-term foreign exchange denominated in G10 currencies, money market instruments and commodities. G10 currencies are currencies in which investors have confidence and are typically currencies of economically and politically stable industrialised nations.

We have multiple proven record portfolios investing in precious metals, equities, indexes, options, stocks, etc. using complex mathematical algorithm that are managed by professional portfolio managers. With VESBOLT, investors bypass the large institutions and invest directly with highly experienced traders for above-market returns.

We aim to generate absolute returns by incorporating the following strategies:

Aims to take advantage of short term movements on the back of news and headlines, order placements in the market, momentum and charts. It uses high leverage and profits from the very tight interbank spreads within G10 due to the high volume traded.

Takes medium-term directional views based on various macroeconomic indicators and economic developments. This strategy aims to catch larger market trends at its earliest possible stage, i.e. well before classic moving averages and other lagging indicators can produce a signal. It stays with the identified trend until a counter-directional signal is detected.

Generates trading signals based on chart analysis. The signals capture the momentum of the market. It has long-term, medium-term and short-term signals. The systems are also linked to the money management system, which improves the risk return ratio.

Generates signals based on chart analysis. It has a contrarian approach. It takes advantage of exaggerated market movements and buys when the market is oversold and vice versa.
