Mar 30 2010 | 7:07pm ET

LGT Capital Partners will launch Britain’s first UCITS III-compliant managed futures fund next month.

The new vehicle will be a regulation-friendly version of LGT’s US$630 million Crown Managed Futures Fund and will track a UCITS-complaint index. LGT is targeting a 10% annual return for the Crown Management Futures Newcits Fund, which will be managed by George Coplit and his commodity trading adviser and macro team, CityWire reports.

To date, the non-UCITS fund has posted 7.4% annualized returns since inception almost a decade ago.

Pfäffikon, Switzerland-based LGT will seed the new fund with at least US$20 million. It will charge a 1.5% management fee and 7.5% performance fee with a high water mark.
