Nov 13 2014 | 3:14pm ET

Equinox Funds has launched a liquid alternatives mutual fund run by Aspect Capital, a London-based commodity trading advisor.

The Equinox Aspect Core Diversified Strategy Fund deploys a mid-term trend following strategy developed by Aspect. The fund seeks to quantitatively identify and profit from price moves in highly liquid and diverse futures markets across global asset classes.

Aspect was established in 1997 by Anthony Todd, Martin Lueck, Michael Adam and Eugene Lambert and is currently managed by a senior team which has extensive experience in the development and implementation of systematic investment strategies. Two of Aspect's founders, Adam and Lueck, were involved in the successful development of Adam, Harding & Lueck (AHL, now a part of Man Group), a pioneer in the application of quantitative techniques to investment management.

The fund has been added to the Equinox Alternative Strategy Platform—a menu of single-commodity trading advisor programs offered in a mutual fund format

Said Aspect CEO Anthony Todd in a statement: "At Aspect, we believe that trend-following strategies can be a source of persistent investment return opportunities and may provide valuable portfolio diversification and we are delighted to have partnered with Equinox Funds in the launch of the Equinox Aspect Core Diversified Strategy Fund, which provides mutual fund investors with access to our trend-following strategy."

Founded in 2003, Equinox also offers the Equinox MutualHedge Futures Strategy Fund, the Equinox EquityHedge US Strategy and Equinox Frontier Funds, a public managed futures family of funds with daily liquidity.
