Barclays Capital has launched a UCITS III-compliant hedge fund replication product designed to track an industry index while offering daily liquidity.
The new Barclays Hedge Fund Replicator Fund is based on the Barclays Capital LBAR Alternative Index. The index is designed to capture the non-linear profile of hedge fund returns using highly-liquid asset classes, among them stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies.
"The index objective is to earn returns that are similar to those of the aggregate hedge funds universe with better liquidity, higher transparency, scalability and lower fee structure," Arik Ben Dor, director of quantitative portfolio stategies, said.
The Luxembourg-domiciled fund has a minimum invest requirement of US$1,000 and is available in five currency-based share classes: U.S. dollars, euros, pounds Sterling, Swiss francs and yen.
