Fund of hedge funds Hermes BPK Partners has launched a managed accounts platform for commodity trading advisors.
The new Alpha Vault Managed Futures program will focus on global, mid-sized CTAs with traditional characteristics. It debuted with some $275 million in initial assets.

Hermes will use a three-year performance fee structure and will reimburse fees if the program does not earn clients money.
