Man Investments launches new strategy in IP 220 products family

Monday, October 26, 2009
Opalesque Industry Updates - Man Investments has announced the launch of the latest addition to its flagship IP 220 family – Man IP220 Series 7 Ltd. This issuance builds upon the proven IP 220 investment strategy which has delivered an annualised return of 13.1%( ) over the past 12 years.

The investment strategy of the IP 220 products is to harness the performance of two complementary investment approaches – the AHL Diversified Programme and a multi-strategy portfolio.

The AHL Diversified Programme is managed by AHL, one of the alternative investment industry’s largest and most consistently successful trend following managers. Trend followers - often referred to as managed futures managers - seek to exploit persistent trends and other market inefficiencies in a systematic way using highly liquid futures markets. AHL trades across a wide variety of global markets and sectors and is designed to perform whether prices trend up or down, with the result that returns tend to be uncorrelated with traditional stock or bond markets.

The multi-strategy portfolio is diversified across a range of investment strategies – equity hedge, global macro, event driven, relative value and non-trend following managed futures - and has a diverse geographical focus. The high level of diversification broadens the range of investment opportunities whilst improving the overall stability of the portfolio.

From the inception of Man IP 220 in 1996, there have only been five quarters when the AHL Diversified Programme and the multi-strategy portfolio have both been negative. Over time these two investment approaches have actively complemented one another to provide investors with consistent, positive returns and low correlation to traditional asset classes, plus downside protection in challenging market conditions.

Additionally, Man IP220 Series 7 Ltd also has the security of 100% capital guarantee at maturity provided by Société Générale( ).

Christoph Moeller, Global Head of Distribution at Man, said: “With conflicting investor sentiment continuing to raise questions about the sustainability of a prolonged market recovery, investment conditions remain uncertain and caution is warranted. Now, more than ever, investors consider it crucial to allocate to investments that have a strong track record across the full market cycle and have the potential to complement traditional assets within an investment portfolio. Man IP 220 Series 7 Ltd. is one such investment opportunity.”
