Quality Capital Management Launches UCITS III Hedge Fund

May 10 2010 | 9:03am ET

U.K.-based systematic hedge fund manager Quality Capital Management today unveiled a new UCITS III compliant fund, the DB Platinum IV QCM GDP Index Fund.

The Luxembourg-registered vehicle, which is part of Deutsche Bank’s funds platform, replicates the investment profile and performance of QCM’s flagship managed futures product, Global Diversified Programme.

 The GDP is a long/short product that trades 115 financial and commodity futures. It has produced annualized returns of 15% over the 14 years from inception and 21% for the five years to April 2010.
 
“QCM is delighted to work with Deutsche Bank in launching its first onshore European UCITS fund," said Aref Karim, chief executive officer and chief investment officer of QCM. "The fact that our flagship QCM GDP with a 14-year history, carrying an attractive five year return of 21% p.a, can now be offered to a wide community of onshore investors in Europe, is a significant accomplishment of this partnership."
 
Manfred Schraepler, Head of db funds at Deutsche Bank, added: “The global futures and forwards markets allow investors the potential to generate returns uncorrelated to traditional asset classes." 
 
The fund, which offers daily liquidity, will target institutional investors with a view to market to retail investors in the near future. It will offer dollar and euro share classes. There is a management fee of 1% and performance fee of 20%.
