UK - AXA Investment Managers has launched an aggressive hedge fund that invests in listed future markets.
The AXA Futures II hedge fund will invest in more than 20 futures contracts across a range of underlying assets in the US, Europe and Asia.
Structured and alternative investment management division director Antoine Josserand said: “Although the AXA Futures fund’s relatively conservative risk/return profile has proven appropriate for many investors, others have expressed clear interest in a more aggressive profile.
In response to that demand, we have now launched AXA Futures II which uses the same strategies as the first fund [AXA Futures], but with double the exposure.”
