The Global Macro Strategy was added in November 2014, with Crystalline’s acquisition of the assets of Sigma-Alpha Capital, a Montreal based alternative investment manager.  Founded in 2004 by André Marsan and Luc Lapointe, Sigma-Alpha managed a Global Macro strategy, available to segregated accounts for over 10 years.


The strategy primarily uses listed futures on financial instruments such as equity and bonds indices, as well as commodities, and currencies. The program is managed according to a fundamental analysis of worldwide macroeconomic and geopolitical developments, coupled with some tactical portfolio positioning.
