Spanish Hedge Fund Readies Suite Of UCITS CTA Funds

Feb 18 2010 | 11:05am ET

A colorful Spanish hedge fund firm is planning a series of UCITS III-compliant commodity trading advisor funds.

Intelectia Capital, founded last year, is preparing to launch its Intelectia Blue fund. The Luxembourg-based vehicle will invest in only liquid commodity markets, CityWire reports, and can invest on both the long and short sides.

Intelectia Blue is targeting returns of between 15% and 20%, with volatility of between 5% and 8%.

The firm is also working on two other funds: Intelectia Green will be more conservative than its Blue cousin, while Intelectia Orange will feature greater leverage.

Intelectia is also planning to open a pair of offices on two other continents, with a presence in Chile and Hong Kong to market its products in Latin America and Asia.
