Sciens Managed Account Platform adds J E Moody Commodity Relative Value Program
Sciens Fund of Funds Management Holdings, part of the Sciens Capital Management Group and provider of single- and multi-strategy funds of hedge funds and managed account services, has added J E Moody’s Commodity Relative Value (CRV) Program to its managed account platform.
J E Moody’s CRV Program is a highly diversified natural resource strategy investing in energies, metals, grains, meats, and soft commodities. It employs a fundamental, relative value spread trading strategy for commodity futures.
The strategy is non-directional and seeks pure alpha with minimal drawdowns and no commodity beta or correlations to other Commodity Managers, major asset classes such as stocks and bonds, or hedge funds. The new ‘cell’ is open to all current and new investors on Sciens’ MAP.
Portfolio manager John Moody said the new outlet will offer investors greater flexibility in how they invest in the CRV Program. Sciens President Stavros Siokos said the firm, with a six year track record, has demonstrated excellent risk-adjusted returns with minimal or negative correlations to traditional asset classes and hedge fund strategies.
“Furthermore, the manager has achieved this with minimal drawdowns, making it a very stable investment,” he added.
Sciens offers a range of managed accounts that follow either a single strategy or a diversified mandate, and is constantly sourcing new accounts to be added to the platform. Sciens has complete control over the managed account platform and provides investors with transparency, liquidity and bespoke reporting.
Sciens Capital Management is an independent alternative asset manager with $5.1bn in assets under management in funds of hedge funds, advisory, private equity and real assets. The group employs over 100 people globally with its principal offices in New York, London, Guernsey and Zurich.
