EverTrend Asset launches macro managed futures fund

Thursday, July 07, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update – EverTrend Asset has announced the launch of macro managed futures fund everTrend Global which is designed to provide investors with global exposure to a broad range of asset classes.

Robert Robbins, President and Portfolio Manager of everTrend Global commented: “I’m pleased to be able to offer this investment opportunity to investors in this environment of uncertainty. This fund was designed to offer diversification, flexibility, systematic risk management, and global exposure not available in mainstream investment products.”

Robbins explained that everTrend Global is a trend following fund, dedicated to investing in the direction of medium and longer term trends in a diversified group of futures markets. “Since change is the driver of both risk and returns, our funds are designed to profit from a wide variety of environments. Our systematic, trend following approach provides clients with a disciplined and flexible way to profit from macro cycles,” he added.

The executive boasted that everTrend is capable of providing results that are quantifiable and “ sustainable. Its diversified strategy has been tested “through myriad economic environments,” resulting to a “ robust fund that is capable of adapting to different market conditions and can reposition itself as it changes.”

“Diversification across seven distinct asset classes ensures that the fund remains balanced and positioned broadly, so that we capture returns and large trends wherever they may occur. Sophisticated risk-adjusted position sizing and portfolio risk controls underpin the everTrend portfolio management process. Our exposure to major currency and bond markets around the globe also provides investors with an embedded currency hedge,” Robbins explained.

He said that one of the key benefits of managed futures funds is that they can move opposite traditional stock/bond portfolios during bear markets. During testing, the fund provided its best returns during periods in which the equity markets posted large declines.
