Multi-Strat performance broadly has been stellar for years. In fact, the Index annualized return is > 7.5% between January 2019 and December 2022, generating a Sharpe Ratio >1.5 with most of the returns in the form of alpha relative (to the S&P 500). This performance is even more impressive in the context of historically low interest rates. YTD however, performance remains positive and uncorrelated to traditional markets, but less impressive relative to a significantly higher risk-free rate.
