Investors Most Positive on Global Macro and Global Emerging Markets Alternative UCITS Strategies

Thursday, January 19, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - ML Capital Alternative UCITS Barometer, a quarterly research publication which explores the current demands and assets flows in Alternative UCITS funds, has found that:
  • Allocations to CTA’s and Global Macro strategies are once again the biggest winners of this quarter’s barometer with a strong bias toward Global Macro-Discretionary funds. With 54% of respondents looking to increase their exposure to Global Macro-Discretionary, this strategy is currently the most popular.
  • There is also considerable demand this quarter for equity managers, with a preference for Global and US managers. Indeed all equity strategies have seen a rise in demand excluding Japanese and Latin American strategies.
  • Global Emerging L/S is once again the preferred equity strategy this quarter with 52% of respondents looking to increase exposure. This is in sharp contrast with Latin American strategies, where it is noted that only 15% of investors were willing to increase their allocations.
  • The biggest losers this month are European L/S and UK L/S strategies. However we have noted a stabilisation in the reduction of exposure to UK L/S and some respondents increasing their allocation for the first time in 3 quarters.
