Man Investments has launched a capital-guaranteed hedge fund product designed to benefit from the growth of emerging markets, the impact of new demographics, climate change and future sources of energy.
Man Vision combines the approaches of its flagship AHL strategy, which employs systematic, statistically-based investment processes to identify inefficiencies in over 120 markets around the world, and its fund of hedge funds affiliate RMF. The fund is targeting an investment exposure of 150% of net asset value by allocating equally to AHL and RMF across a wide range of markets and investment strategies. These include Asian and emerging markets, commodities, environmental and energy markets, event driven and healthcare.
“We are seeing significant changes in world capital flows,” said Peter Clarke, Man CEO. “Man Vision Index Notes is an exciting gateway to access the new investment opportunities which arise. They come associated with specific risks that require skill and experience to manage. By combining AHL and RMF, Man Vision Index Notes offers access to these opportunities through a single product.”
Man Vision will be open for investment from April 21 June 3.
