RAM Active Investments Launches the RAM Diversified Alpha Fund (UCITS)
RAM Active Investments SA ("RAM AI"), a systematic asset manager based in Geneva, is launching the RAM (LUX) SYSTEMATIC FUNDS – DIVERSIFIED ALPHA (the “Fund”), a fund which will seek to deploy a robust and stable systematic investment process to exploit volatility and dispersion within a broadly diversified global asset allocation, with the intention of offering asymmetric returns that have low correlation to global markets.
“Technological innovation is a key component of the portfolio construction methodology”, explains Maxime Botti, Founding Partner & Senior Fund Manager at RAM AI who heads the systematic macro team formed by Philippe Huber and Tony Guida, Fund Managers and Researchers. “We used a similar methodology than our Alternative Investment Fund strategy which has the objective to provide uncorrelated returns to mainstream asset classes over the medium-term”.
The Fund aims at acting as a real diversifier in a global asset allocation by seeking to deliver absolute returns, not only during normal market conditions but also when it is the most needed during market jolt periods.
The approach to dispersion modelling is agnostic and adaptive. RAM AI models the relationships between liquid assets by analysing them on a relative basis and through multiple dimensions. RAM AI’s expansive and evolving computational capabilities allow to analyse on an ongoing basis a large amount of data to identify the most profitable strategies across time frames spanning from short to long-term.
“Relying on techniques borrowed from natural sciences for solving multi-dimensional problems, the use of genetic algorithm that replicates evolution allows our models to select the fittest alphas, making the overall strategy more robust” adds Philippe Huber.
“As financial markets change (less independent, central banks interventions, etc.), so does our model” shares Tony Guida. The Fund benefits from a robust process of alpha creation and selection; alphas are reassessed several times per year to take into account evolving market conditions.
The Fund is available in a UCITS format as of the 10th of November 2020 to investors in France, Finland, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

Bentley and ESI Group Work Together to Refine the Flying Spur Through Sustainable Design Process17.5.2021 14:00:00 CEST | Press release
Regulatory News: ESI Group (Paris:ESI), a global player in virtual prototyping for industries, worked hand in hand with Bentley on the optimization of one of the world’s finest four door sedan, the Flying Spur. Thanks to virtual prototyping, teams have been able to eliminate noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and reduces physical parts in test phase. Advanced virtual design processes have been used in the testing and production cycles of the third Flying Spur generation. Thanks to ESI’s virtual prototyping, a weight optimization program for the Flying Spur could be undertaken on 40 different components. The finely tuned process enabled acoustic tests for any airborne sounds filtering into the cabin to be completed, as well as any impact from the structure itself, such as tire noise. This ensured the correct soundproofing materials were deployed in the right locations around the vehicle, so passengers can enjoy the quietest cabin experience possible. These cutting-edge techniques are
