Frontier launches FrontEdge Managed Futures Fund.

Frontier Capital Management has created a new fund which it has named the FrontEdge Managed Futures Fund.

Frontier said the fund is designed to offer investors an efficient method of accessing Managed Futures, and is the second alternative investment fund established by Frontier, following FrontEdge Global Hedge Fund which launched in 2009.

"The managed futures asset class is currently experiencing increased interest, as its defensive properties were once again proven in the most recent bear market, with industry returns of around 17 per cent in 2008. The inclusion of managed futures in either traditional equity/bond or more diversified portfolios has been shown to improve risk-adjusted returns, and is one of the most liquid absolute return strategies," Frontier said.

"The FrontEdge Managed Futures Fund targets risk-adjusted returns in excess of the average return for the managed futures industry. The Fund is expected to provide excellent portfolio diversification, with low correlations to both equity markets and hedge funds. The Fund employs a unique combination of individual funds, managed accounts (offering daily liquidity and full transparency), and synthetic replication. FrontEdge Managed Futures Fund will be launched with initial investments of $40 million, expected to rise to $60 million by the end of the year," a press release from Frontier said.

FrontEdge Managed Futures Fund will be available to external investors from 1 December.
