LUXEMBOURG, Nov. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- iM Global Partner has announced the upcoming launch of a new UCITS fund, iMGP DBi Managed Futures, together with partner Dynamic Beta investments, which will allow European investors to access the increasingly most popular Managed Futures market.
Dynamic Beta investments (DBi) is a pioneer in hedge fund index tracking and is on a mission to bring the diversification benefits of Managed Futures to a broader investor base by being appointed sub-manager of the iMGP DBi Managed Futures Fund, a new sub-fund of the SICAV iMGP, domiciled in Luxembourg.
Andrew Beer, Co-Fund Manager, Dynamic Beta investments: "Managed Futures, as a strategy, has the potential for great diversification, especially in an inflationary environment. In 2015, we set out to solve the double hurdle of investing in this space: the high fees and expenses and the risk of a single manager. Our Managed Futures medium is the culmination of that effort."
This strategy has been available to US investors for over 3 years and has become the largest Managed Futures ETF in the industry. In fact, the US-based DBi Managed Futures Strategy ETF (DBMF) has seen phenomenal growth over the past 12 months, increasing its assets under management by more than 1,000%, from around $60 million a year ago. a year to more than 1,000 million today, and registering a return to a year of 24.5% (as of November 25, 2022, source Bloomberg, total return based on price).
Jamie Hammond, Deputy Managing Director and Head of International Distribution at iM Global Partner: "The success of our US Domiciled ETF (DBMF) strategy has prompted European clients to ask us if we plan to launch a UCITS version, and "It has. Clients have seen the diversification benefits of including Managed Futures in their portfolios, and now we have made it available to them in a UCITS structure at daily pricing."
The iMGP DBi Managed Futures Fund
The new fund seeks to replicate the returns before trading fees and costs of 20 leading Managed Futures hedge funds in a UCITS format. By focusing on the performance of a portfolio of hedge funds, divided between different sub-strategies, it aims to minimize the risk of a single manager.
This fund seeks to match the major factor exposures of hedge funds with a dynamically adjusted portfolio of liquid futures contracts.
Philippe Uzan, Deputy Managing Director and CIO Global Asset Management at iM Global: "With the equity and fixed income markets seeing significant volatility and simultaneous negative returns, many investors have been desperately seeking diversification and positive returns. In 2022 , the DBi Managed Futures Strategy ETF has (so far) been able to provide positive returns in each of the 6 months that global bonds and equity indices were negative, it also delivered a positive return in 2020 (1. 8%) and 2021 (11.2%) when traditional assets were in bull markets."
