Wholesale Managed Futures 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.
