J8 Capital Management Launches Global Absolute Return Fund

Jan 18 2018 | 2:08pm ET

Investment management firm J8 Capital Management LLP has launched its UI-J8 Global Absolute Return UCITS Fund, which offers its systematic investment strategy to institutional and retail investors.

The fund focuses on long-term portfolio protection and portfolio diversification, by bringing an enhanced CTA/managed futures model to market, which is retaining exposure to commodity returns within the UCITS framework while excluding equity exposure, according to the firm.

The fund, scheduled to launch on Feb. 28, is now open for subscriptions. The founder share class, which features discounted management and performance fees, will be closed after the launch. 

“This will help those investors seeking greater portfolio diversification and offer a new source of return that can be used in savings and retirement products alike, said Dr. Tillmann Sachs, J8 founder and chief investment officer, in a statement.

The investment portfolio consists of independent and systematic absolute return strategies. The strategy harvests return from three key pillars: Technology, carry and value models, across liquid global futures markets in a risk-weighted portfolio.

The Fund will launch with following share classes: Founder Share Class, euro (hedged); Professional Share Class, USD; and Retail Share Class, euro (hedged).

The Fund is set-up in Luxembourg on the UCITS platform of Universal-Investment-Luxembourg S.A., which has been launching private label funds since 1970 and has 350 billion euros in assets under management.

London-based J8 Capital Management offers highly liquid, diversified, uncorrelated and cost-efficient systematic investment solutions.
