The Man AP Stratum ser-ies 2 portfolio is available with a minimum investment of $10,000 or euros 10,000 until March 31. It will combine the AHL institutional programme, a portfolio of managed futures that is diversified over 120 global markets, with around 50 hedge funds selected by Man Global Strategies.
This investment strategy follows in the footsteps of Man-AP Stratum, which has achieved annual returns of 13 per cent a year over the last eight years.
The new product’s 100 per cent capital guarantee is provided by Citibank and has the potential to increase in value by locking in profits gained from positive trading performance.
Man Investments chief executive John Morrison says: “When markets are shaky, the real strength of AP Stratum is its ability to maximise opportunities for profit and spread risk over a range of markets and strategies. The product performed very well during previous corrections in global markets and the core AHL investment approach has a history of performing during stockmarket corrections over the last 20 years.”
