Frontier Readies Managed Futures Fund Of Funds

Dec 3 2010 | 11:00am ET

Frontier Capital Management is set to launch its second vehicle, a fund of managed futures hedge funds.

The new FrontEdge Managed Futures Fund will allocate to about 20 underlying managers. It will debut with $40 million in initial assets, but the firm hopes it will grow to $60 million by the end of the year.

"The inclusion of managed futures in either traditional equity/bond or more diversified portfolios has been shown to improve risk-adjusted returns, and is one of the most liquid absolute return stategies," Frontier founder Michael Azlen said.

The new fund is managed by Marc-Phillipe Davis and Alex Gaitain. It is available in U.S. dollar and pound Sterling share classes and via the Trasact and Nucleus platforms. There is a $100,000 minimum investment.

Frontier Capital currently has some $600 million in assets under management.
