Abbey Capital Futures Strategy Fund Surpasses $250 million in Assets under Management

Friday, October 23, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - Abbey Capital Limited has announced that our US mutual fund, the Abbey Capital Futures Strategy Fund, has surpassed $250 million in assets under management as at 30^th September 2015.

The Fund, Abbey Capital’s first liquid alternative mutual fund, launched on 1 July 2014 and has returned over 22%* since its inception over one year ago. The Fund offers individual and institutional investors access to a multi-manager managed futures mutual fund, comprising leading managed futures managers, and leveraging Abbey Capital’s expertise in manager selection, portfolio construction and risk management.

“The performance of the Fund since inception shows its value for investors as part of a diversified portfolio” said Tony Gannon, CEO of Abbey Capital, adding “the increase in assets is an indication of the increased investor interest in managed futures in order to provide an uncorrelated return source for their portfolio. We are also delighted that the Fund is available on multiple platforms giving investors access to this unique offering”. Tony Gannon continued by saying “We believe one of the attractions of managed futures has been its ability, historically, to provide valuable diversification for portfolios.

At Abbey Capital, our focus is to provide cost efficient investment products, which aim to deliver superior performance combined with strong risk management. The Fund has a transparent fee structure, with a net expense ratio of 1.99% (Share Class I), including all Abbey Capital and sub-advisor management fees.^† A key differentiator for the Fund is that there are no performance fees at any level.

The Fund seeks to deliver positive absolute returns through a managed futures strategy and a fixed income strategy. Abbey Capital allocates to the Fund’s underlying managers through its proprietary managed account platform in order to gain exposure to a range of trading strategies executed across foreign exchange (“FX”), financial and commodity futures markets.

Abbey Capital is an alternative investment manager based in Dublin, Ireland and New York. Founded in 2000, Abbey Capital has specialised in the creation and management of liquid multi-manager managed futures, global macro and FX portfolios. Abbey Capital is one of the largest independent allocators in the managed futures industry worldwide allocating in excess of $5bn to managed futures.
