Markets

The 2008 financial meltdown precipitated increasing complexity and limitations in the credit markets. Astor Capital Fund rose to those challenges by formulating new ideas and credit solutions that increase a client’s value and net worth and that add liquidity opportunities supported by a broad gamut of financial products.

The affiliates in our international referral network provide local insights with a global perspective for all credit products that they are able to source. We further rely on third-party independent credit strategists and fundamental analysts to formulate data-based insights and bespoke credit swap and trading solutions to enable clients to obtain the necessary liquidity when they need it the most. In every case, that liquidity is unfettered by use-of-funds restrictions.

The independent advisors in the Astor Capital Fund network bring sales, trading, and research experience and knowledge from locations in major financial centers around the globe. Their abilities extend to all equity products that are traded in public markets across a spectrum from tradition to exotic derivatives and include cash and currencies, program trading, flow derivatives, and convertible debt.

We expect the advisors in our network to make a commitment to bottom-up research, which gives our clients the thorough information they need to stay informed about major trading events, the latest trends in industry sectors, and the overall dynamics of every geographic market. They strive to understand and internalize a client's needs and goals and to help them navigate the markets and obtain the liquidity that is necessary to accomplish their investing and trading objectives on both a personal and business level.

Astor Capital Fund gives its clients access to an expansive network of independent product specialists that cover all facets of the equities markets, and all opportunities to derive liquidity from portfolio assets traded in those markets. The independence of the affiliates in our network gives our clients assurances that the advice they receive is not biased and that the liquidity and custom-tailored financing solutions that are prepared for them will meet their investment needs and wealth management goals.

All of our clients will have access to enterprising solutions that open access to liquidity, including solutions for actionable indications of interest (IOIs), commitments of capital on automated algorithmic orders, and conditional orders that enhance the functionality of seeking blocks.

Astor Capital Fund’s affiliates understand the interactions between the exchange rates and foreign markets, and how those interactions affect the financial posture of our corporate and institutional clients. We can facilitate access to third-party macro platforms that cover currencies and foreign exchange to meet complex investor needs in the most effective manner.

Astor Capital Fund enjoys a reputation as a premier facilitator of interest rate and foreign exchange products. Our advisors play key roles in the development of emerging third-party market platforms that provide transparent and unbiased information and services to our clients.

Those services also include helping clients to anticipate volatility and events in the macro currency and foreign exchange market that may affect portfolio growth. With these services, a client may see, for example, how interest rate decisions made by central banks will affect international currency markets, or how government bond yields will react to a rate of inflation that deviates from expectations.

We are a client-focused enterprise. Through our affiliations with independent professionals, we endeavor to give clients the necessary understanding of the macro markets that they need for effective and profitable management of their portfolio assets. We use our currency and foreign exchange knowledge to help clients structure the purchase and sale of securities so that their hedging and financial goals are achieved. This knowledge extends to:

  • government bonds
  • agency and supra-sovereign bonds
  • commercial paper
  • interest rate derivatives (including structured products)
  • inflation-linked products
  • cross-currency derivatives
  • agency RMBS
  • spot foreign exchange
  • foreign exchange forwards and options
