22 Mar 2018 J8 and Universal-Investment launch global absolute return fund
UK manager J8 Capital Management and German investment company Universal-Investment have launched the UI – J8 Global Absolute Return UCITS Fund. The fund implements a scientifically-backed, systematic and rules-based multi strategy approach focused on momentum, carry and value trades. The strategy aims to generate attractive returns by trading long as well as short positions, regardless of market conditions. The focus lies exclusively on fixed income, currency and commodity markets and consciously leaves out equity markets in order to become a natural diversifier for equity portfolios.
