We seek investments in quality businesses with high ROIC, reasonable debt and low relative valuation. i-Cthru only selects companies which present low perceived risk, as reflected in their option prices.

Approach

i-Cthru seeks long-term capital growth paired with short-term capital preservation and is absolute-return oriented. Our stock picking strategy invests in U.S. stocks and foreign companies that are listed on U.S exchanges as well as put options for downside protection.

Research

Our research process analyzes every month c.10,000 companies and their derivative contracts. We use a fundamental approach, based on a detailed analysis of financial statements, including ROIC calculation. i-Cthru takes into account valuation parameters, market sentiment as well as price of protection

Risk Management
