Man Investments and Dexion Capital have launched a Ucits III trend following product, Man AHL Diversity. 

Man Investments and Dexion Capital have launched a Ucits III trend following product, Man AHL Diversity. 

The product will be managed by AHL, a division of Man Investments and one of the largest trend following managers.

Man AHL Diversity is designed as a portfolio diversifier, aimed at sophisticated UK investors. Investors will be able to access the sterling denominated product with a minimum initial investment of GBP100 from the product’s launch in October 2009.

Man AHL Diversity has exposure to more than 90 global markets and 29 international exchanges trading 24 hours a day, following trends in everything from currencies and interest rates to agricultural assets and metals.

Tim Wong (pictured), chief executive officer of AHL, says: ‘Historically, the performance of trend following managers has tended to be uncorrelated to traditional stock and bond markets. We saw that with AHL’s highly impressive performance last year when its best performing fund delivered 33 per cent at the same time as some equity markets fell 40 per cent. Last year’s performance clearly illustrates AHL’s potential to reduce risk and enhance returns when added to a traditional portfolio of stocks and bonds, and this has captured the attention of investors.’

‘We are delighted to be joining with Man in marketing this outstanding product,’ says Robin Bowie, chairman of Dexion. ‘AHL is the world’s leading trend following manager with an unparalleled 20 year track record. For many years, private investors all around the world have enjoyed the returns and low correlation to traditional asset classes offered by AHL. For the first time, UK investors will be able to access AHL via a Ucits III product, in a transparent, highly regulated and accessible format.’
