Rothschild Larch Lane Management Company has launched a liquid, open end alternatives mutual fund which uses a risk balanced approach to portfolio construction.
Using a multi-manager structure, the Rothschild Larch Lane Alternatives Fund offers diversification across a variety of asset classes, time frames, investment styles and strategies.
The fund seeks to generate consistent returns relative to risk and maintain low correlation to equity and bond markets.
Rothschild and Larch Lane will share their experience of managing multi-manager alternatives portfolios through the joint venture management company. Larch Lane is a pioneer in early stage hedge fund investing, hedge fund seeding, and is a well-known fund of hedge funds investor in the US. Rothschild brings complementary global research of liquid hedge fund managers and distribution.
Michael Tamasco, co-head of Rothschild Asset Management, says: "It was important to develop a portfolio that we believe can generate consistent returns in different market environments."
Mark Jurish, Larch Lane founder and CEO, says: “We've spent a significant amount of time developing a liquid alternatives fund solution that we believe meets investor demand, including devoting substantial resources to portfolio and risk management."
