The Aspect Core Diversified Programme is offered in a  daily-liquid, UCITS-compliant investment vehicle.

Aspect Capital Limited, a London-based systematic hedge fund and CTA pioneer with $8.8 billion in assets announced Wednesday (July 21, 2021) its launch of the Aspect Core UCITS Fund. The new fund joins the Aspect Diversified Trends Fund and the Aspect Systematic Global Macro Fund as the third of the hedge fund’s UCITS-compliant products. (HedgeWeek)

Aspect Core UCITS Fund

The new fund is a version of the Aspect Core Diversified Programme, a medium-term quantitative trend-following strategy, that seeks to generate alpha from the capture of medium-term trend opportunities across over 100 highly liquid financial and commodity markets.

Launched in 2014, the Programme currently has assets of over $1.5 billion and a track record of producing diversifying returns for investors.

The new UCITS Fund has launched with over $40 million of external capital. Targeting 12% volatility, it has daily liquidity and, initially, USD, Euro, GBP, and JPY share classes. Especially suitable for institutions, the fund provides exposure to one of the firm’s core strategies within a liquid wrapper.

Uncorrelated by liquid returns

“With uncertainty over the sustainability of current equity market valuations, declining bond yields, and the looming threat of inflation, investors are increasingly seeking diversifying, uncorrelated yet liquid investment solutions to add balance to their portfolios,” said Rosie Reynolds, Chief Commercial Officer. “This launch reinforces Aspect’s commitment to meeting investors’ requirements, providing them with much-needed diversification in the form of a robust, liquid, UCITS-compliant vehicle.”
