New York-based asset manager Alterama has recently launched the Alpha Plus F of F LP, a multi-strategy, multi-manager managed futures fund. The new vehicle will offer 10 non-correlated strategies selected from a pool of more than 60 trading advisors active on AlphaMetrix Investment Advisors’s Mosaic Platform.
"We were looking for a product that offered lower volatility with a smooth return curve, so by picking managers with five-year track records, we have 10 with the best returns and lowest volatility," said Teri Jansen, principal of the trading advisor and pool operator.
The fund of funds' portfolio will include two unique strategies, according to Jansen: a discretionary, diversified commodities trader who incorporates the use of fundamental weather and agricultural analysis from meteorologists; and a discretionary, short-term financial futures trader who incorporates game theory into his trading decisions.
The new fund of funds will have a $500,000 minimum investment and a 1/15 fee structure.
Based in Chicago, AlphaMetrix Investment Advisors was formed in 2005 by Aleks Kins (formerly of RQSI/Access and Carr Global Advisors) and Jon Stein (formerly of Efficient Capital Management and Rotella Capital Management). The firm is an alternative investment research and management company with $492 million in assets under management.
