The SGI Bond Optimised Sharpe Strategy (“BOSS”) is an innovative index reflecting the evolution of an international optimised bond strategy based on a proprietary quantitative trading model developed by the Fixed Income Derivatives teams of Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking. The model seeks to deliver an excess return over traditional bond strategies under predefined risk limitation constraints.


Implementation of 2 systematic strategies subject to 
strong risk limits:

   -  Intra-curve asset allocation,
   -  Multicurrency investments.

Allocation to the universe of the SGI Bond indices:
   -  SGI Bond is a range of investable Fixed Income 
      indices providing a synthetic exposure to constant 
      maturity bonds,
   -  Each index replicates an investment in a single 
      currency note  with a fixed maturity ,
   -  Fixed maturity is obtained by replicating the 
      performance of a monthly rolled bond investment.

Strategy aiming at generating Alpha from
diversification between bonds and foreign exchange
