Single strategy alternative UCITS indices launched by Alix Capital

Geneva-based Alix Capital, provider of the UCITS Alternative Index family of indices has added another suite of indices following the announcement earlier this month that it had introduced a volatility index, in so doing taking its number of alternative UCITS benchmark indices to 13 in total. The new suite of UAIX indices are a family of benchmarks tracking the performance of single UCITS hedge fund strategies and are based on a systematic proprietary model developed by Alix Capital. The new indices are: (UAIX) Commodities, CTA, Fixed Income, Long/Short Equity and Volatility. The objective is to replicate and outperform each respective UCITS Alternative Index benchmark. Each single strategy index is composed on between six and 15 underlying UCITS hedge funds and is rebalanced on a quarterly basis. Constituent funds must have at least EUR30million in AUM to qualify for inclusion. Louis Zanolin (pictured), CEO of Alix Capital said that the UAIX indices had been developed in response to investor demand for single strategy UCITS hedge funds investable benchmarks. “After months of research we are very proud to release this innovative UCITS hedge funds index family. The creation of single strategy replicable benchmarks such as the UAIX indices is a natural evolution of the ever developing UCITS hedge funds industry,” said Zanolin.
