Man Reopens Futures Fund To Investors

Jan 27 2009 | 12:24pm ET

Man Investments says it is reopening its AHL Diversified Strategies to investors after the fund returned 33.2% to investors last year.

AHL Diversified strategies is based on a quantitative and predominantly directional investment strategy and is highly diversified across over 150 highly liquid and transparent markets including commodities, currencies, stocks and bonds, HedgeWeek reports. 

The product is offered in U.S. dollar- and euro-denominated guaranteed bonds as well as non-guaranteed U.S. dollar-denominated income bonds. The guaranteed bonds feature a 100% capital guarantee from Credit Suisse International and are designed to generate a higher capital return, while the income bonds will pay a non-discretionary, fixed annual coupon. Investors can also select a balance between capital guaranteed and income bonds.

“We believe Man AHL Diversified Strategies will generate a lot of interest since it is a great portfolio enhancer,” said Christoph Möller, global head of distribution at Man Investments. “It has the potential to offer a low or even negative correlation to stocks and bonds, and therefore reduce the volatility of a portfolio whilst offering an additional source of return.”
