PWE Capital launches European regulated fund after generating 124% cumulative returns

The MetaTrader 5 technology stack for hedge funds has enabled the Australian company to open a new European fund which is now ready for investors.

In September 2021, Parker Winston Eckhardt, an Australian fintech company, announced the move to the MetaTrader 5 platform for hedge funds, which fully meets their high algorithmic trading requirements. PWE Capital develops trading algorithms combined with a Direct-To-Bank trading environment to facilitate high-frequency trading in the currency, commodities, and derivatives markets. Over the past few months of testing the real-life efficacy of their algorithms, PWE Capital has generated phenomenal results and a pool of statistical data to reinforce previous trading simulations.

PWE Capital launches European regulated fund after generating 124% cumulative returns

Mr. Manas D. Kumaar, Group CEO of PWE Capital, commented on the fund results: "From September 2021 to the end of February 2022, we set up and ran an experimental house fund that generated 124% of cumulative returns, with a Sharpe ratio of 9.87, a win ratio of 77%, and an average drawdown of only 4.3%. Returns ranged from 8% in November to 60% in January, with an average monthly return of 21%. In comparison, S&P 500 closed at -5.26% in January and at -3.14% in February, while PWE Capital returned 60% and 11% each month, respectively. Our outperformance highlights the growing importance of diversifying through currency strategies."

Talking about the advantages of MetaTrader 5 for hedge funds, Mr. Manas D. Kumaar mentioned system flexibility and transparency, the speed of the MQL5 programming language, and the enhanced capabilities for the onboarding of client assets at scale. The MetaTrader 5 interface has provided the company with a suitable infrastructure to perform high-frequency trades with consistent precision. Furthermore, through MetaTrader 5 for hedge funds, PWE Capital has obtained a smooth, well-maintained, and intuitive gateway for tapping into global markets while streamlining middle-office and back-office administration tasks. Through the highly efficient order flow control, from desktop to exchange, the platform assists the company in maintaining transparency and in conducting near-time trade analysis.

"For many decades, the fund management sector has been known for its notorious opaqueness. MetaTrader 5 has allowed us to pave a transparent trail to markets, achieve a better vantage point, and level the playing field," explained Mr. Kumaar. "As someone in the investment decision-making business, I think it is essential to invest in the right technology stack. MetaTrader 5 certainly fits our stack for multiple reasons, not least of which is for fund accounting."

Commenting on the ecosystem around the platform, PWE Capital representatives praised the MQL5.community as an excellent resource for up-and-coming algorithmic trading professionals. More than 7 million traders and developers already engage in MQL5 programming. They sell their trading robots via the MQL5 Market and perform development orders. For example, 1,200 developers have already become members of the MQL5 Freelance service.

"It is encouraging to see many young developers dip their toes into quantitative trading by experimenting with MQL5 and gaining insights from the community of like-minded individuals," added Mr. Manas D. Kumaar. "No doubt, many of them will someday be applying for jobs at funds such as PWE Capital."

PWE Capital has also announced the launch of a regulated European fund, which is now ready for professional investors. More information about the fund can be requested through the company's website. For the European fund, PWE intends to utilize the full benefits of the MetaTrader 5 platform, which is the company's preferred route to market.

One person passes all MetaQuotes certifications for the first time ever

At the end of last year, Mr Ihab Maximous, a specialist at Exinitic, set a unique achievement by passing MetaQuotes certification in all possible areas. Mr Ihab Maximous passed all three exams and received personal certificates of the MetaTrader 5 trading platform administrator, client manager and dealer.

Mr Ihab Maximous

"First I planned to pass only MetaTrader 5 administrator certification since this is my main field of expertise", says Mr Maximous. "However, I also face many issues related to dealing, so I decided to get certified as a dealer as well. When I studied the description of the Manager certification, I realized that it is useful to all managers of brokerage companies. This is more than just working with the terminal: for example, I acquired useful marketing skills".

The specialist said that he regularly studied the documentation for his main working activity. However, it took him a total of six months to prepare for all the exams. Ihab notes that support site materials were sufficient even when studying previously unknown areas: "Documentation turned out to be sufficient, although I had to focus on each sentence in order not to skip useful information. Workshops turned out to be incredibly useful as well and I would like to thank everybody at MetaQuotes for this huge effort".

Mr Maximous notes that, in addition to new marketing skills he acquired, he also studied the important topics related to the MetaQuotes trading platform and services: "Now I can handle any situation and offer maximum help to traders, while protecting the brokerage company from abusers". Ihab's efforts did not go unnoticed — the company board chairman raised his salary by 45% after he passed all three certifications.

"I believe that all employees of trading departments, handling trading operations, should pass Administrator and Dealer certifications", says Ihab. "And the heads of trading should pass MetaTrader 5 Manager certification. After studying for these certifications, your employees will be able to solve all trading issues more efficiently and answer all clients' questions".
