Portfolio Thermostat Fund

Portfolio Thermostat Fund


The Fund seeks long-term risk-adjusted growth through compounded returns.



Markets are variable, shifting constantly from one distinct environment to another, much the way the weather does. There are often periods of calm but also periods of turbulence. In an effort to produce stability, where there is variability, we believe there needs to be a systematic process that attempts to manage the outcome. To manage variable weather conditions, we use a thermostat process to maintain indoor temperature to a comfortable level. Likewise, Canterbury believes a portfolio, operating in variable markets, needs its own thermostat – a systematic process that responds and strives to adjust to the broader market environment in an effort to produce stability in portfolio volatility.



The Fund follows the Portfolio Thermostat strategy, a comprehensive portfolio management strategy, designed with the goal of creating and maintaining optimal portfolio efficiency through dynamic and ever-changing market environments.

The Thermostat works by classifying variable market conditions into categories called Market States, of which there are 12 that each exhibit unique characteristics. The Thermostat methodology adjusts its holdings in order to try to adapt to shifts in market conditions. Through systematic rotation, the portfolio seeks to limit risk to normal fluctuations and avoid substantial declines, regardless of the broader market environment. With its goal of protecting the portfolio’s potential to generate compounded returns in any market condition, we believe the Thermostat strategy may have the potential to benefit from any market environment – bull or bear.
