Alternative Asset Management launches 100 per cent capital protected fund


Alternative Asset Management has launched the A2M Lion Fund, a multi-strategy fund that combines the non-correlated strengths of both the foreign exchange and equity futures markets.

Underlying managed accounts have combined assets of over USD170m.

The fund will invest in only proven strategies with low volatility characteristics: StdDev 2.35 per cent monthly; +18.01 per cent annualised net returns since Aug 2006; +13.93 per cent 12 months rolling.

Investors have the flexibility to chose the Lion Fund as an investment on its own merits or the Lion Fund + 2.5 x leverage or the Lion Fund + leverage + 100 per cent capital protection over time.

The company is seeking initial investors of up USD40m to launch the new fund, however managed accounts will be offered. There is no capacity constraint up to circa USD1.5bln within the structure.

Nicholas Edwards, Alternative Asset Management’s chief executive, says: "For some time it has become clear that investors wish to reduce risk whilst maintaining exposure to superior returns through investing in the non-correlated returns offered through systematic managed futures programmes, benefiting from the positive convexity they add to a portfolio.
