Aberdeen Standard to launch passive hedge fund portfolio

Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI) is to launch a liquid alternative strategy with an initial US$150 million (€132 million) from institutional investors.

The ASI HFRI-I Liquid Alternative Ucits Strategy aims to meet the needs of institutional investors who want exposure to the diversification and risk-return characteristics of hedge funds, but do not have the resources or expertise to select individual funds from the broad array of funds available.

Edinburgh-based ASI claims that the fund will also provide investors with the industry’s first viable passive benchmark option when accessing the asset class.

It will invest in over 140 Ucits funds, mirroring the constituents and weightings of the HFRI-I Liquid Alternative UCITS Index which in aggregate has assets of more than $110 billion.
