Vontobel has launched an innovative alternative risk premia fund. This Fund targets mid-single digit compound returns over the investment cycle, with little correlation to traditional equity and bond markets.
It is the first Luxembourg domiciled multi manager fund providing easy access to alternative risk premia strategies.
In the current environment, many investors struggle to generate positive returns from traditional strategies. To address this challenge, Vontobel Alternative Risk Premia fund invests in market-neutral strategies enjoying strong academic backing such as "carry", "defensive", "momentum" and "value". Having preferential access to best-in-class single managers, Vontobel team builds a portfolio to gain optimal exposure to various strategies while controlling downside risks.
"Vontobel's multi-manager approach enables our clients to gain access to a wide range of single-manager strategies at a similar cost to a single direct investment," commented Daniel Irion, portfolio manager at Vontobel Hedge Fund Solutions.
