Aquila Capital's multi-asset funds are up 1.9% and 1.0% in September, DWS and Aquila Capital launched a UCITS III CO2 fund

Monday, October 06, 2008

Opalesque Exclusive: Aquila Capital's multi-asset funds are up 1.9% and 1.0% in September From the Opalesque Team: Prof. Harry Kat forwarded the recent performance of Aquila’s FundCreator-based funds to Opalesque.

Aquila Capital`s Statistical Value Market Neutral Funds returned 1.9% and 1.0% respectively in September, and 7% in the last 12 months. Both Funds are UCITS3 regulated and therefore offer daily pricing and daily liquidity to investors.

Aquila's CIO Harold Heuschmidt commented: “Given the environment, …all our cash is invested in short term European AAA sovereign bonds. Another layer of safety is that because our Fund is a tightly regulated mutual fund, all assets are held in segregated accounts, with our custodian Bank SEB Luxemburg. … We have no credit exposure.

“All in all… it is very much business as usual. It again shows the power of efficient Multi-Asset diversification. The numbers speak for themselves.” Aquila is based in Hamburg, Germany. Corporate webpage: Source
