GAM Launches UCITS-Compliant Wadhwani-Managed Fund

Apr 1 2010 | 8:38am ET

Wadhwani Asset Management and GAM have teamed up to launch a UCITS III-compliant version of Wadhwani’s flagship quantitative managed futures fund.

GAM Star Keynes Quantitative Strategies will use proprietary models developed by Sushil Wadhwani, a former member of the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee, who manages the Dublin-domiciled fund. London-based Wadhwani has managed the fund to annualized returns of 12% to 13% over the past five years.

Unlike the existing fund, which has a US$1 million minimum investment requirement, the UCITS-compliant fund has a US$10,000 minimum investment.

“Human nature gives too much weight to recent events, and often clings to beliefs in the face of contrary evidence,” Wadhwani said. “Our current economic and market outlook suggests macro uncertainty, which can create a ‘herding’ effect among investors.”
