Pardo Plans Managed Futures Fund Of Funds

May 21 2010 | 10:14am ET

Pardo Financial Group is readying a fund of commodity trading advisors, with big plans for the new vehicle.

The firm will launch its Pardo Strategic Alpha Fund later this month, HedgeCo.net reports. The fund, managed by Pardo founder Bob Pardo, is targeting annual returns of between 15% and 25%, with a current capacity of $2 billion. That capacity can grow as Pardo allocates to additional managed futures funds.

Pardo is trumpeting the fund’s due diligence process, which aims to keep volatility between 10% and 15%. The fund is investing in several strategies, including trend-followers, counter-trend, pattern recognition, option volatility arbitrage and intramarket spreads across 40 futures exchanges, according to HedgeCo., using quantitative and qualitative screening processes.

All of the managers the fund has selected are 100% systematic and have at least a 6-year track record with non-correlating strategies.
