Atlantic House Investments has launched an uncorrelated strategies fund, looking to target multi-asset derivative strategies with the potential to deliver diverse sources of return.
Containing client assets of £30m, the fund will target positive returns across a range of market scenarios, while also looking to protect the portfolio from significant downturns.
Its long volatility strategies will also aim to profit from rising implies or realised volatility, and may act as a hedge against extreme market moves.
The fund will invest in volatility and derivative strategies across components of equities, fixed income, credit, currencies, and commodities. This allows the fund to access uncorrelated opportunities across asset classes.
The Atlantic House Uncorrelated Strategies Fund is a Ucits fund with daily dealing and while it is available for all investors it is specifically targeted at professional and institutional clients.
Tony Stenning, chief executive at Atlantic House Group, said: “As with all Atlantic House funds, the inspiration came from listening to our clients, understanding their challenges, and finding innovative solutions that both play to our investment strengths, and which can deliver the outcomes they seek.
“We believe the fund will be a compelling proposition for investors seeking uncorrelated positive returns, protection from extreme market falls and diversification.”
According to Atlantic House, through the fund a larger group of investors will have access to volatility as an asset class, which has historically only been accessible by large institutions.
Tom May, Atlantic House’s chief investment officer, said the new strategy is an extension of the firm’s range.
He added: “While the fund is new, many of the strategies are already tried and tested by our investment team either within the Atlantic House Total Return Fund or in bespoke investments for existing clients.”
