Man adds two classes to its hedge portfolio

Man Investments has added euro and dollar share classes to its Man-IP 220 fund of hedge funds, giving investors alternative routes to access the capital-protected hedge fund portfolio.

Established in 1996, Man invests in the AHL diversified programme which trades a portfolio of around 130 managed futures, and the Glenwood Portfolio, a fund of hedge funds. AHL is a London-based subsidiary of Man Group which has run managed futures portfolios since 1983. Glenwood is a Chicago-based subsidiary of the group and has been constructing fund of hedge fund portfolios since 1987.

Investors who can meet the minimum 50,000 or euro 50,000 investment will also benefit from a capital guar- antee provided by JPMorgan Chase Bank and a profit-lock-in feature. Both euro and dollar share classes will mature on May 31, 2018 but holdings can be redeemed before then, subject to a tiered early redemption fee of up to 4 per cent until December 1, 2011.

Man Investments global head of sales and marketing Christoph Moller says: “Man-IP 220 has delivered impressive returns and valuable diversification benefits. It is this performance potential and security of the capital guarantees that make it such an attractive option for investors.”
