Risk Management Procedures
Each investment program contains risk, but the 6 procedures we have developed aim to reduce your exposure without negatively impacting portfolio performance.
We aim to reduce programmatic risk through these 6 dedicated procedures:
1: Setup Controls
When setting up new programs under our regulated mother company, JP Fund Services, we restrict access to the products and trading criteria each manager has access to.
2: Leverage Controls
We make sure that if leverage is applied to a program, only the pre-agreed leverage will be available to each program’s manager.
3: Performance Controls
We have developed bespoke software to monitor program performance, and all calculations are subject to a second level of control from our in-house risk management team.
4: Position Control
The risk management team regularly reviews positions taken by each program manager to ensure that individual trades and trade sizes are in line with the program’s strategy as presented on trademakers.com.
5: Reporting Control
The risk management team receives daily reports on all direct trading positions taken by the respective manager to ensure that the strategy is being traded in accordance with the strategy presented on trademakers.com.
6: Onboarding Control
We have strict controls in place governing how we evaluate and onboard all investment programs. Each program manager is required to successfully complete JP Fund Services’ internal Due Diligence procedures first, and only when a program has been approved by the risk management team will we invest own money to test the setup, the execution strategy and reporting before we accept any client investments.
The length of the testing period can vary from strategy to strategy, while we test all programs and managers using our own capital before making these investment opportunities available to anyone else. We always invest alongside our clients in all programs we offer to the public. We risk our money first, so you never have to.
