Offshore investment managers ED L & F Man has introduced the second edition of its Man multi-strategy guaranteed bond.
The bond, which is listed on the alternative investment market, is aimed at high net worth investors who are looking for growth but who do not wish to risk their capital.
Multi-strategy will focus on four areas of investment. These are event driven securities such as bankruptcies or mergers and acquisitions, trading in the futures market, stockpicking and market neutral strategies, which consistently invest in indices no matter if those indices are in the middle of a surge or a slump.
The capital is guaranteed, so that investors will get back at least their original investment when the bond matures in 2009.
With many similar products on the market, any new bond needs an innovative angle in order to attract attention to itself. The Man multi strategy guaranteed bond does not appear to provide this.
