Systematic manager Cantab Capital Partners launches macro fund

Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - Cantab Capital Partners, the USD4.7 billion systematic global macro manager, has launched a new fund: the CCP Core Macro Fund. It will be opened to external investors on 01 February 2013.

This launch is an important milestone for both Cantab and the systematic global macro space. The CCP Core Macro Fund is designed to give investors access to a diversified stream of macro-style returns at a fraction of standard industry fees as well as offer daily liquidity. It is expected to show negligible correlation to traditional sources of risk (equity and fixed income) and limited correlation to trend following strategies.

The new Fund is a natural extension of Cantab’s investment philosophy, tested risk management and portfolio construction process and its renowned trading and execution infrastructure. The CCP Core Macro Fund is based on a multi-model, multi-asset approach. The strategy offers investors access to the momentum and value groups of models using the ensemble of risk management tools developed by Cantab’s team of scientists over the last six years.

Dr Ewan Kirk, Founding Partner and Chief Investment Officer, stated: "We are truly excited about this launch. We feel it gives investors access to much sought after macro style returns in a very cost effective format. We have seen more and more institutions investing in systematic macro as it is perhaps the only liquid investment style that exhibits negligible correlation to equity and bond markets over time. We are especially pleased we can address the specific needs of many institutional investors by offering this daily liquidity product at an exceptionally low cost. Our ability to offer a product like Core Macro to the market is a testament to our ability to leverage our investment in research, development and technology."
