January 17th True Partner Capital
Q4 2023 webinar

Date: 17 January 2024

Existing investors and potential investors have been invited to attend the Q4 2023 webinar.

January 18th IAM True Partner Volatility UCITS Fund Q4 2023 webinar

Date: 18 January 2024

Existing investors and potential investors have been invited to attend the Q4 2023 webinar.

Discussion topics of both webinars:

  • Fund performance and key P&L drivers over the quarter.
  • The overall market and volatility environment during the fourth quarter and 2023 as a whole. The fourth quarter saw a strong rally in equity markets, falling bond yields and a decline in implied volatility as markets perceived a more dovish turn from the US Federal Reserve. The MSCI World (Total Return, hedged to US dollars) rose by 10% over the quarter, while US 10 year bond yields fell by almost 70 basis points. The VIX index fell by almost a third from 17.5 to 12.5, while the VIX short-term futures ETF fell by a third.
  • The outlook for the year ahead for markets, including current pricing and potential triggers for volatility dislocations. With the moves in 2023, implied volatility is now near lows in several major markets, which may make equity volatility vulnerable to disruptions ahead.
  • Concluding Q&A.

We are looking forward to meeting all registered participants across the world and to sharing our views.

Q3 2023 update:


Date: 18 and 19 October 2023

Discussion topics:

  • Fund performance and key P&L drivers over the quarter.
  • The overall market and volatility environment during the third quarter. The quarter saw a small decline in equity markets, rising bond yields and a decline in tradable measures of equity implied volatility such as VIX futures, alongside a rise in measures of at-the-money volatility, as markets contended with the view that rates will be ‘higher for longer’.
  • The outlook for markets amid signs of continued market instability and in particular our perspectives on volatility, including current pricing and potential triggers for volatility dislocations.
  • Concluding Q&A.

We would like to thank all the participants across the world for their time and valuable contribution.

Q2 2023 update:


Date: 13 and 14 July 2023

Discussion topics:

  • On the call the Fund's co-CIOs Tobias Hekster and Govert Heijboer, together with the team, will discuss the volatility landscape, the drivers of Fund performance over the quarter and the team's views on the market outlook.
  • The second quarter saw a continuation of the rally in equity markets and further compression in implied volatility in most equity indices. While the US debt ceiling did cause stresses in the market for Treasury Bills, equity markets remained unfazed.
  • Our view remains that the overall economic and geopolitical backdrop remains fragile, while higher interest rates are working their way through the financial system. Despite the lack of an imminent trigger, we expect to see more activity in equity volatility in the months ahead. The team believes that this is likely to translate to increased opportunities and that current market pricing offers an attractive entry point to the space, particularly relative to asset classes such as fixed income, where implied volatility remains quite elevated compared to equity volatility.
  • Concluding Q&A.

We would like to thank all the participants across the world for their time and valuable contribution.

Q1 2023 update:


Date: 25 and 26 April 2023

Discussion topics:

  • On the call the Fund's co-CIOs Tobias Hekster and Govert Heijboer, together with the team, will discuss the volatility landscape, the drivers of Fund performance over the quarter and the team's views on the market outlook.
  • The first quarter saw a rally in equity markets and a decline in implied volatility in equity indices, despite the problems at Silicon Valley Bank, Credit Suisse and other financial institutions.
  • In our view, the developments in the first quarter further reinforce our thesis coming into the year that the macro backdrop remains fragile and that we are likely to see more activity in equity volatility in the months ahead. The team believes that this is likely to translate to increased opportunities and that current market pricing offers an attractive entry point to the space, particularly relative to asset classes such as fixed income, where implied volatility is already significantly elevated.
  • Concluding Q&A.

We would like to thank all the participants across the world for their time and valuable contribution.

Q4 2021 update:


Date: 18 and 19 January 2022

Discussion topics:

  • Review of the Fourth Quarter of 2021 and the full year 2021.
  • The drivers of Fund performance over the quarter and the full year 2021.
  • The team’s views on the current market environment and the opportunity set.
      After the S&P 500’s gain of almost 30% in 2021 and 100% over the last 3 years, comparable to the peak of the dot com bubble, the next 12 months could be more challenging for US and global equity markets. With inflation hitting 7% in the US and now a key focus for politicians and policy makers, focus is shifting to the pace and magnitude of policy tightening in a year which will also see the US mid-term elections. Implied volatility entered the year at relatively low levels and realized volatility also remains below long-term averages, but appears to be past the low. We believe this sets the stage for an interesting year ahead, which could bring more downside volatility and more potential relative value volatility opportunities after the unusually bullish equity market conditions of 2021.
  • Concluding Q&A

We would like to thank all the participants across the world for their time and valuable contribution.

Q3 2021 update:


Date: 19 and 20 October 2021

Discussion topics:

  • Review of the Third Quarter of 2021
  • The drivers of Fund performances over the quarter
  • The team’s views on the current market environment and the opportunity set. After doubling from the Q1 2020 lows, equity markets may now be at an interesting juncture. There are more signs of fundamental challenges to the bull market story amid slowing growth momentum and an increasing focus on inflation and supply chain challenges. Volatility strategies could have potential opportunities ahead.
  • Concluding Q&A

We would like to thank all the participants across the world for their time and valuable contribution.

Q2 2021 update:


Date: 20 and 22 July 2021

Discussion topics:

  • Review of the Second Quarter of 2021
  • The drivers of Fund performances over the quarter

As equity markets hit new all-time highs, while implied volatility has fallen to well below long-term average levels in a number of markets, the team will discuss prevailing market dynamics and the potential opportunities ahead and diversification benefits of volatility strategies.
  • Concluding Q&A

We would like to thank all the participants across the world for their time and valuable contribution.
