The Asterion Program aims to capture short-term price fluctuations using multiple uncorrelated strategies inspired by behavioral and flow-induced market dynamics. The Program is designed to offer low correlation with conventional trend-based models. “The Asterion Program offers a unique approach in the systematic space both leveraging price and fundamental data to translate behavioral insights into investment opportunities to deliver uncorrelated alpha,” explains Serge Houles, CEO of Tidan Capital. “Linus’s proven track record and deep expertise in systematic strategies will be invaluable as we plan to broaden our suite of macro and trend-following strategies.”

In addition to running a capital structure relative value strategy under the Tidan Fund since October 2021, Tidan Capital recently announced the launch of a market-neutral volatility and options arbitrage strategy named Nova. This strategy, under the stewardship of newly appointed portfolio manager Magnus Linder, is set for an initial launch during the summer as part of a bespoke mandate for a large US institutional investor. Subsequently, in the third quarter, Tidan Capital will launch a commingled fund within Tidan’s RAIF structure in Luxembourg, with seed capital provided by a Swedish family office.
