China's first quantitative hedge fund is getting some blue-chip advice from one of the most prominent quants in the industry.
Fortune SG Fund Management has engaged Winton Capital Management to provide research consulting to the new fund, launched in conjunction with Lyxor Asset Management. Fortune SG is a joint-venture of Lyxor and Baoteel Group.
Winton and Fortune SG said that they already "work closely together in areas such as investment in futures markets and product development for managed futures mandates in China."
The new fund will be available only to Chinese investors, and will focus on China's futures markets.
Fortune SG has about 36 billion Chinese yuan (US$5.7 billion) in assets under management.
