Disparity in UCITS returns sees Garraway Financial Trends come out on top
22 March 2017
Kepler Partners' Absolute Hedge Annual Review of Alternative UCITS 2016, commenting on the disparity in returns between the top and bottom performing funds in the managed futures UCITS sector, has highlighted Garraway Financial Trends as the top performing fund in 2016.
Kepler Partners notes while that trend followers began the year with impressive performance in January and February the remainder of 2016 proved difficult for many. But Garraway Financial Trends Fund held on to these gains and was the standout fund up +18.7% in 2016. “The fund targets an annualised volatility of 15% and blends exposure to longer term, multi-year trends with more short term periods of price action, something which clearly worked well in 2016,” states the Kepler Review.
