AQR Wholesale Managed Futures Fund

Australian Domiciled Unit Trust ARSN: 147 951 791 APIR Code Class 1P: PER0634AU

  About the Fund

Investment Objective

The investment objective of the AQR Wholesale Managed Futures Fund (“Fund”) is to seek to produce attractive risk-adjusted returns while targeting a low long term average correlation to traditional markets. The Fund will seek to achieve returns from a managed futures trading strategy in excess of the Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index, over the medium to long term.

Investment Approach

To pursue its investment objective, the Fund will be actively managed and will primarily invest in a portfolio of futures contracts and derivative instruments across the asset classes of commodities, currencies, fixed income and equities (the “Four Major Asset Classes”).  This universe of investments is subject to change under varying market conditions and as these Instruments evolve over time. 

AQR will use proprietary quantitative models which aim to benefit from price trends in equity, fixed income, currency and commodity instruments. AQR generally expects that the Fund will have exposure in long and short positions across all Four Major Asset Classes, but at any one time the Fund may emphasise one or two of the asset classes or a limited number of exposures within an individual asset class. 

 

The Fund’s investment program is speculative and entails risks. There is no guarantee that the Fund’s investment objective will be achieved or that the Fund will provide any particular rate of return. There is no guarantee that the investment approach employed by the Fund will remain as above, that any component of the above approach will not be discontinued or that the Fund’s goals will not change over time. Please consider all sections of the Fund's PDS and obtain financial advice before deciding whether to invest in the Fund.
