Retail investors are flocking to Winton Capital's UCITS III-compliant version of its flagship hedge fund strategy.
The DB Platinum IV dbX Systematic Alpha Index, part of Deutsche Bank's UCITS platform, has seen its asset rise more than sevenfold over the past 12 months. The fund managed just US$178 million at the end of October 2011 but was up to US$1.44 billion at the end of last month.
