Alternative investment strategies are often thought of as involving buying hard-to-trade assets such as property, unlisted companies or bonds issued by businesses in distress. This isn't always the case. "Liquid alternatives" are able to provide diversification for traditional equity and bond investments by applying innovative strategies to mainstream and easy-to-trade financial markets.
The Winton Absolute Return Futures Fund gives UK investors access to the firm’s liquid alternatives strategy. The fund applies a systematic investment strategy to more than 100 markets to construct portfolios capable of navigating a range of market environments.
