London-based CTA to launch Luxembourg domiciled UCITS fund

Monday, July 11, 2016

Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque London:

J8 Capital Management and Pairstech Capital Management will launch a Luxembourg domiciled UCITS fund using the same trading strategy as their flagship fund, the J8 Futures Fund, a CTA managed futures fund domiciled in Malta. The launch is expected to take place in the fall.

"We see increasing interest from investors who ask for a UCITS vehicle to gain exposure to our investment strategy," Tillmann Sachs, CIO and head of research, told Opalesque.

The J8 Futures Fund appreciated by 4.50% in June, 10.92% YTD and 12.77% since its December 2012 inception. Comparatively, the SG CTA Index is up 1.29% MTD and 5.5% YTD.

The fund employs long and short proprietary algorithmic trading strategies in liquid futures and forwards and other derivatives. It trades in fixed income, currencies and commodities. The portfolio is risk weighted and applies leverage control with a target volatility mechanism.
