Growth One

What is Growth One?

Growth One is a Forex investment fund that offers investors the opportunity to invest in a specialized market with a proven algorithm and experienced traders within a managed and diversified portfolio.

How does Growth One work?

Growth One uses advanced technologies and analysis to identify and largely automate profitable trading opportunities in the Forex market. The algorithm we have developed is based on technical analysis, our own knowledge, and a large amount of historical data, and is constantly being further developed to keep up with changing market conditions.

What is Growth One's trading strategy and how does it manage risk?

Growth One employs an innovative Expert Advisor (EA) that trades automatically based on average pip movement over specific periods, identifying market trends using a grid trading system with consistent position sizes. We avoid the Martingale system to mitigate risks and ensure balanced potential gains and risk management. Our EA is equipped with an advanced news filter and avoids trading during high-impact news events. Positions are also manually managed by our team of traders, with strict policies to limit drawdowns to a maximum of 40%, and a soft limit at 25%. Our approach, which has successfully avoided reaching the 40% limit, is focused on generating consistent returns while keeping risks manageable for our investors.chnologies and analysis to identify and largely automate profitable trading opportunities in the Forex market.

What are the risks of investing in Growth One?

Although investing in Forex can potentially yield attractive returns, it also comes with risks due to the volatility of the currency market. The value of currencies can fluctuate rapidly, leading to significant losses. We use different mechanisms to minimize the maximum loss.

Can I withdraw my money whenever I want?

You can request a withdrawal at any time. However, if there is a significant open drawdown, your request will be temporarily held until the drawdown stabilizes, as a large withdrawal during this time could adversely affect the margin level of other users in the fund. For withdrawals, we use an MT5-PAMM investor account. Once processed, which typically takes 1-2 trading days, the funds will be transferred back to your MT5-PAMM investor account, from where you can withdraw them to your wallet or bank account.

What do you trade in?

Our software trades on the financial market among more than 25 forex pairs and gold. Think of EUR/USD, XAU/USD, GPB/EUR, USD/JPY, and so on. Since most of the Forex market volume goes into EUR/USD, over 90% of our trades are focussed on this pair.

How much knowledge do I need?

You don't need any prior knowledge. Our vision is to enrich your life with passive income. Prior knowledge is not required.

How does the performance fee work?

Growth One charges a performance fee on the profit made by the fund on your portfolio. The fee is calculated at the end of each day based on the high-watermark principle. This means that the performance fee is only charged on the actual profit made and not on losses incurred in the interim period. The formula for calculating the performance fee is: (Balance or Equity - High Water Mark) * Performance fee percent / 100. If the open profit and loss (PnL) is lower than 0 (negative), then the Equity is used in the formula. If the open PnL is bigger than 0 (positive), then the Balance is used in the formula. If the formula gives a negative value, then no performance fee is charged (it is set to 0).

What are the transaction costs charged by the broker?

Your broker charges transaction costs for executing trades. Growth One works with partner broker Vantage, which offers one of the lowest price per traded lot in combination with zero spreads. The fee charged by broker Vantage ranges from $3.00 to $6.00 per full lot traded, which is automatically deducted from your account and is separate from Growth One's fees. This is one of the lowest, if not the lowest fee in the industry. In forex trading, 1 lot is equivalent to 100,000 of the base currency of the traded currency pair. For example, if you trade EUR/USD, 1 lot is equal to 100,000 euros.

What is the investment horizon recommended by Growth One?

We recommend using an investment horizon of at least 12 months. This means that you must be willing to commit your money for a longer period of time and not panic during short-term market fluctuations. It may take some time before you can fully benefit from the returns our fund can offer. It is important to be patient and trust in the experience and expertise of our algorithm and traders.

How does the Z-score measure the performance of the portfolio?

The Z-score of an investment portfolio is used to compare the portfolio's performance to that of other similar portfolios. It is a measure of the portfolio's standard deviation relative to the average return of comparable portfolios. A positive Z-score indicates that the portfolio is performing better than average, while a negative Z-score indicates that the portfolio is performing worse than average. The higher the Z-score, the further the portfolio deviates from the average. A Z-score of 0 indicates that the portfolio is performing as expected relative to comparable portfolios.

What is the Sharpe ratio and how is it calculated?

The Sharpe ratio is a measure of the risk-adjusted performance of an investment. It is a way to determine if the returns of an investment are worth the extra risk associated with it. The Sharpe ratio is calculated by subtracting the risk-free return (such as the interest on government bonds) from the average return of the investment, and dividing the result by the standard deviation of the investment. Generally, the higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the investment performance relative to the risk associated with it.

What is Monte Carlo and how is it used by Growth One?

Monte Carlo simulations are used by Growth One to get a detailed picture of the possible risks and returns of our trades. This technique uses random variables to simulate different future scenarios and determine which results are more likely. Monte Carlo simulations can map out the potential impact of different circumstances on your investment. They can also help you understand the possible consequences of changes in the currency market or other factors that affect your investment. Keep in mind that Monte Carlo simulations do not guarantee future results and that the results are only an indication of a broad range of possible outcomes.

How does Growth One ensure transparency and compliance with regulations?

Growth One follows the transparency requirements for issuing investment proposals set by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) to the extent that they are relevant to the services provided by Growth One. The offering of software related to automated trading on the currency market does not require a prospectus or license from the DFSA.
