The Dorian Fund’s method of analysis is to first develop a global macroeconomic view of developed and emerging markets. Then once a whole economy view is established a proprietary trading system is used to determine what global markets and/or companies to invest in that best reflect that economic viewpoint. This method of analysis is broadly considered to be a global top-down macroeconomic approach. All investment strategies are executed using a philosophy centered on generating income off every trade / investment. No trade / investment is ever made that doesn’t have the potential to generate real tangible monthly income. The firm chiefly utilizes options on stock indices, bonds, commodities, and futures to execute the Fund’s objectives while minimising risk by hedging at an instrument and/or portfolio level.

The strategy primarily consist of four types of trades that the firm has named Vertical Credit Spread, Naked-Call, Naked Put, and Futures Long/Short. Each type of trade has been defined below.
