Multi-asset and alternative investment specialist, Frontier Investment Management, has added euro and Swiss Franc share classes to its FrontEdge Global Hedge Fund following increasing demand from both Swiss and European family offices and institutions. These two latest additions mean the fund now offers four share classes including £ and US$.
FrontEdge Global Hedge Fund was launched back in 2009 as an enhanced method of accessing the hedge fund allocation within Frontier’s multi-asset funds and was made available to external investors.
Michael Azlen, Founder and Chief Executive at Frontier, says, “Many investors recognise the benefits of including hedge funds in a diversified portfolio, with their ability to lower volatility and increase risk-adjusted returns. FrontEdge Global Hedge Fund aims to further reduce investment risks by allowing investors to access the industry in a low-cost, liquid and diversified manner. With currency volatility a real concern for many people, the addition of the new share classes makes this attractive proposition more accessible and cost effective to a wider number of investors.”
This fund combines investments across 50-plus single hedge fund managers, segmented across strategy, size and geographical focus with a significant allocation to a proprietary blend of synthetic replication strategies. Its aim is to provide investors with an efficient means to access the returns of the global hedge fund industry while mitigating the risks. Frontier says single manager risk, in particular, is minimised by the fund holding only a small amount with any one manager, while synthetic replication strategies reduce cost and increase liquidity.
The fund’s range also includes the FrontEdge Managed Futures Fund. Both funds provide twice monthly liquidity to investors with five days’ notice.
