Aspect Capital Launches Systematic Global Macro UCITS

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Aspect Capital, the UK-based USD7,3 billion systematic investment manager, has launched a UCITS fund to provide investors with access to the Aspect Systematic Global Macro Programme.

The Systematic Global Macro Programme utilises a systematic relative value approach to global fixed income, stock indices, currency and volatility investing. It aims to generate absolute returns by managing a diversified portfolio with low correlations to traditional and alternative asset classes, allocating its risk to over 20 individual models spread across 13 macro-economic themes.

The fund´s portfolio managers Asif Noor and Anoosh Lachin have more than 30 years combined financial experience.

In a comment to the launch, Anthony Todd (pictured), CEO of Aspect, says:

“We continue to place great emphasis on designing innovative investment offerings that are accessible through a range of different vehicles. The Systematic Global Macro programme has been available for two years in segregated managed accounts.  Over that time it has built a compelling track record and has proved of interest to many investors.  We are therefore pleased to provide a new fund structure that many investors in Europe and beyond are looking for.”

The Aspect Systematic Global Macro UCITS Fund is the second UCITS-compliant fund managed by Aspect Capital. The Aspect Diversified Trends Fund was launched in 2011 to provide UCITS investors with access to Aspect’s flagship Diversified Programme.
