Rothschild & Cie HDF Investments Solutions, part of French asset manager Rothschild & Cie Gestion, has extended its Ucits-compliant alternatives offering with the launch of the R CFM Diversfied fund.
This product is a multi-asset fund investing in alternative risk premia strategies, which are not following equities and fixed income markets trends.
Rothschild & Cie Gestion has developed a partnership with quantitative specialist asset manager Capital Fund Management (CFM) based in Paris in order to build the fund strategy.
The fund aims to offer its investors an absolute return performance with a low correlation to traditional asset classes and a targeted volatility rate of 7%.
Institutional investors and distributors have already invested €100m in the fund since its launch.
The firm said that the product will continue targeting the same type of investor.
