“I firmly believe that considerable expansion of synthetic products, coupled with new portfolio management technologies, triggers poorly researched effects on primary assets during times of crisis by creating new interactions between them.”
With its innovative Risk Matrix, Ginjer AM measures the strength of interactions between primary assets and synthetic products around the world.
By developing the New Risks Matrix, Ginjer AM has established an invaluable map of market risks that can be used to determine how real the danger is in any situation and to separate fear (epidermal reactions) from systemic risks.

This hedging process is systematic and can therefore be easily spotted.
