CrossBorder Capital To Launch New UCITS-Compliant Bond Fund

May 24 2016 | 11:59pm ET

Credit and liquidity specialist CrossBorder Capital will launch a new UCITS-compliant bond fund in order to broaden appeal of its strategy to a wider market. 

The new fund will reportedly focus on three strategies; using algorithms to identify attractive bond valuations, option overlays to provide protection against sudden market movements, and taking advantage of opportunities in yield curve movements. 

The fund will carry significantly lower minimums than previous versions, requiring only €10,000 instead of its previous $5 million, according to an article in Citywire. It is being launched partly in response to global market volatility, said managing director Michael Howell in the article. Characterized as an "all-weather" bond fund by Citywire, the new vehicle is designed for investors seeking both fixed income exposure as well as enhanced duration.

Founded in 1996, London-based CrossBorder Capital specializes in the monitoring and analysis of global liquidity flows, believing it to be an important factor in determining prices of of currencies, bonds, equities and real estate. The firm currently manages more than $350 million in assets.
