Aspect Capital announces new investment offering

Originally published on 02 July 2018

The Systematic Global Macro Programme utilises a systematic relative value approach to global fixed income, stock indices, currency and volatility investing. It aims to generate absolute returns by managing a diversified portfolio with low correlations to traditional and alternative asset classes, allocating its risk to over 20 individual models spread across 13 macro-economic themes. The UCITS fund has been structured to provide access to the complete Aspect Systematic Global Macro Programme.

Portfolio managers Asif Noor and Anoosh Lachin have more than 30 years combined financial experience: “Our entire focus is on the research and development of our trading strategies. We combine the use of traditional and forward-looking alternative data sources to ensure our models continuously evolve. This fund launch aims to provide investors with access to the uncorrelated returns our models produce.”

Anthony Todd, CEO of Aspect, said: “We continue to place great emphasis on designing innovative investment offerings that are accessible through a range of different vehicles. The Systematic Global Macro programme has been available for two years in segregated managed accounts.  Over that time it has built a compelling track record and has proved of interest to many investors.  We are therefore pleased to provide a new fund structure that many investors in Europe and beyond are looking for.”

The Aspect Systematic Global Macro UCITS Fund is the second UCITS-compliant fund managed by Aspect Capital. The Aspect Diversified Trends Fund was launched in 2011 to provide UCITS investors with access to Aspect’s flagship Diversified Programme.
