LoCorr Funds launches Market Trend Fund

RELATED TOPICS​

LoCorr Funds has launched a Market Trend Fund which will use a quantitative trading system driven by multiple trend-following models that select long and short positions in the global futures and forex markets.

The fund, which will be managed principally by Graham Capital Management, trades a broad range of markets, including global interest rates, foreign exchange, global stock indices and commodities.
 
Market Trend’s primary investment objective is capital appreciation in both rising and falling markets, thereby providing diversification to traditional investments, with managing volatility as a secondary objective.
 
LoCorr Fund Management has oversight of the fund’s investments and will manage the allocations within the fund’s investment strategies. In addition to the fund’s principal investment strategy sub-advised by Graham Capital, the fund will employ a cash management programme sub-advised by Nuveen Asset Management.
 
“We are very excited to add the Market Trend Fund to our growing line-up of low-correlating strategies available to our partner firms and their clients,” says Kevin Kinzie, CEO of LoCorr Funds. “We enthusiastically embrace the chance to partner with Graham Capital, and the timing could not be better.”
 
Graham Capital was founded in 1994 by Kenneth G Tropin as a proprietary trading company and currently manages approximately USD7 billion in AUM for global institutions and individual investors. Graham Capital focuses on macro-oriented quantitative and discretionary investment strategies in the global fixed income, currency, commodity and equity markets.
 
“Quantitative macro trading has been a core competency at Graham for 20 years. Our client base consists primarily of global institutions seeking strategies that provide strong absolute returns as well as diversification to a traditional portfolio. As the use of liquid alternatives has expanded, we are excited to bring our investment strategy to the market in a liquid, mutual fund format,” says Kenneth G. Tropin, chairman and founder of Graham Capital.
