Aquila Capital’s Risk Parity 7 Fund hits four-year milestone
Aquila Capital’s AC Risk Parity 7 Fund has reached a four year track record of consistently positive year-on-year returns.
Available as a UCITS fund since the 5 February 2008, the Fund got off to another strong start in 2012, generating a 2.95% return in January 2012.
The AC Risk Parity 7 Fund has been recognised as the largest, and one of the top performing, quantitative funds by the UCITS Alternative Index Blue Chip (“Blue Chip Index”), comprised of 50 of the world’s top UCITS hedge funds currently open for investment. It is the fifth largest Multi Asset UCITS fund in terms of AUM, according to the Absolut Report Alternative UCITS monitor.
Aquila Capital’s Risk Parity strategy, recently assigned an AA fund management rating by Standard & Poor’s Capital IQ Fund Research, offers two levels of volatility, the AC Risk Parity 7 and 12. The combined funds have over USD1.5 billion in AUM following inflows of over USD500 million in 2011 – with close to USD260 million of inflows into the AC Risk Parity 7 Fund.
Roman Rosslenbroich, co-founder and CEO of Aquila Capital says: “We are very pleased to have been able to demonstrate the ability of Aquila Capital’s Risk Parity 7 Fund to deliver consistent positive returns over the last four years. This track record will be crucial in attracting new inflows and provides a compelling proposition for investors seeking steady returns.”
The funds, which apply a unique investment approach that allocates risk across different asset classes, were one of the first absolute return funds in a UCITS format. The AC Risk Parity Fund originally existed in an offshore format and was first launched in 2004. In 2008, it launched as one of the first UCITS III absolute return funds with daily pricing and liquidity.
