What are Trading Strategies?

When you invest in a Trading Strategy, our expert traders make speculative trade decisions on your behalf, right in your account.

They may take one or two speculative positions with specific short-term expectations, or none at all if conditions aren’t favourable – the pulse of the market dictates. This means our experts may also enter short positions to target profits from downward market movements.

Please note that Trading Strategies are categorised as very high risk. While taking on such risk could see you achieve significant returns, be aware that drawdowns in excess of 20% are a distinct possibility.

Frequently asked questions

If you haven’t already done so, you’ll need to open a AAG Markets account and add the amount you intend to invest, subject to the minimum amount for each portfolio. Then follow these steps:

  1. Open the AAG Markets platform and click the ‘AAG Markets’ tab
  2. Click the ‘Invest’ button, next to your chosen portfolio
  3. If this is your first time with AAG Markets, you’ll need to complete a set of suitability questions specifically for managed portfolios (this is different to an appropriateness test, which relates to self-directed investing)
  4. Open the trade ticket and enter the amount you’d like to invest

No, you don’t. Once you’ve invested in a managed portfolio, we will automatically create a sub-account dedicated to that portfolio under your existing Saxo account.

There is no minimum investment period and you can exit at any time for no additional cost. However, it’s important to remember that our managed portfolios are designed for long-term investing and we’d only recommend them if you intend to invest for several years.

Compared to traditional wealth managers we offer a compelling and cost effective way to have your money managed, with some of our portfolio less than half of the cost of an expensive wealth service.

Our fees depend on the managed portfolio you choose to invest in. For more information, please visit the individual portfolio webpages. To see how our annual service fee is calculated, here

As with all investing, there is a relationship between the amount of risk you take and the level of returns you could receive (both positively and negatively). The risk profiles of managed portfolios indicate the potential severity of a loss (of value) during a negative period. As a reference, investing into stocks is considered high risk and during a bad period the stock market could lose around 20%, based on historic events. 

Low risk portfolios are expected to experience much less fluctuation (of value) than stock markets;

Medium risk portfolios are expected to experience notably lower fluctuation (of value) than stock markets;

High risk portfolios are expected to experience similar fluctuation (of value) to stock markets;

Very high risk portfolios are expected to experience price fluctuation above stock markets
