PJM Capital, a quantitative CTA trend follower founded by managed futures pioneer Peter Matthews, will launch a new 2X program in January 2011.
PJM says the new program is designed to take advantage of the comparatively lower levels of volatility demonstrated by its existing program to allow institutional investors access to a higher-yielding profile.
Ahead of the launch, Matthews went to London to speak to selected institutional investors at the invitation of Signature Advisors (the single-manager marketing division of Kenmar Global Investment Management, UK). The 2X program is expected to be available via Kenmar's Institutional ClariTy Managed Account & Analytics Platform.
Stephen Kingham, managing director and head of marketing at Signature Advisors, said: "We are delighted to be working with an industry pioneer in the managed futures space. PJM's state of the art risk management systems coupled with Peter Matthews’ unique scientific approach to trading allows institutional investors to access to a 2X program with a risk profile in line with the typical trend following program but with the potential for comparatively greater upside returns.”
