Aspect Capital has jumped onto the UCITS III bandwagon, offering a regulation-friendly version of its algorithmic trading hedge fund.

The London-based firm is already trading the UCITS-compliant version of its flagship, which has been seeded with partner capital and one outside investor, the Financial Times reports.

The Aspect Diversified fund, upon which the new fund is based, is a quantitative trend-following futures vehicle.
