Charlottesville, Va.-based Quantitative Investment Management is reopening its flagship managed futures program, the firm said.

The $1 billion Global Program reopened to current investors at the beginning of this month, and will become available to new investors on June 1. The firm credited improvements in execution and strategy for the decision to reopen the program with a new capacity of roughly $2 billion.

The program launched five and a half years ago and has posted annualized returns of 19.7% (with an annualized volatility of 11.4%). Through the end of April, it is up 10.2% in 2007.

The program does not charge a management fee. The performance fee is 30%. There is a $250,000 minimum investment requirement for fund investors, and a $20 million minimum for managed accounts.
