Systems are a way to organize and manage different strategies in a more efficient manner. By allocating a specific sum of money to a system, the expectation is that the group of strategies within the system will be more effective in some way, such as reducing risk or limiting drawdowns.

These systems are created by combining different strategies in an arbitrary manner, without using risk parity or inverse volatility measures. The specific ratios of each strategy within a system are outlined on the system’s page.

It is important to note that while the ratio of each strategy within a system is specified, the actual amount or Size assigned to each asset may be less than what the system ratio calls for. This is a crude but effective money management technique, known as partial commitment, which holds back a portion of the funds to reduce risk and increase flexibility.
