Alix Capital, the Geneva-based provider of the UCITS Alternatives Index family of indices, has launched a new investable index comprised of fixed income UCITS funds investing in both emerging and developed markets.
The new offering, the UAIX Fixed Income Global Index, is made up of between 10 to 15 UCITS fixed income hedge funds, with a maximum allocation of 40% to emerging markets funds. The index has been constructed using a proprietary systematic model developed by Alix Capital with the aim of outperforming the UCITS Alternative Index.
This addition increases the UAIX family of indices to 12 strategy specific UCITS hedge funds investable indices.
“The UAIX Fixed Income Global Index is the second investable index we have launched for the increasingly popular fixed income market,” said Louis Zanolin, CEO of Alix Capital. “We believe this balance between developed and emerging market funds gives investors exposure to emerging market returns they are seeking, while managing the inherent volatility from investing in this sector.”
