Winton UCITS Fund Nets $1.26B In 12 Months

Nov 16 2011 | 10:44am ET

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.

Winton launched the regulatory-friendly version of its Diversified Trading Program in June 2010, HFMWeek reports.

"We have seen a strong appetite for certain strategies, such as CTA, and this has been spread across investor types and regions," Alex McKenna, who heads the Deutsche Bank db-X funds, told HFM.
