Investment management firm GAM has launched GAM Trading II – GBP 1.25XL, a leveraged class of its Trading II fund.

The new class, which launched on 29 May 2009, aims to give investors the opportunity to benefit from leveraged exposure to the performance of GAM Trading II, an offshore fund of hedge funds.

GAM Trading II was awarded an AA rating from S&P last year. In 2008 it generated over 8.6 per cent compared to a loss of -17.4 per cent from the MSCI World Index in GBP.

Martin Harrison, head of mutual funds (UK), says: ‘GAM Trading II – GBP 1.25XL is designed for investors that have a strong positive view of GAM Trading II and want to enhance their exposure for the same amount of capital. The class will seek to apply for UK distributor status in the UK, making it particularly appealing to UK investors.’
