Deutsche Bank partners with Millenium Global for successful Systematic Macro UCITS fund launch

Deutsche Bank’s award winning DB Platinum funds platform has partnered with Millennium Global, a specialist currency and alternatives investment manager with over USD11 bn under management, to launch the Millennium Global Systematic Alpha fund, an innovative UCITS III funds offering daily liquidity.

The Millennium Global Systematic Alpha fund is an open-ended UCITS III compliant fund providing investors with a return linked to the performance of the Millennium Global Systematic Alpha program (MGSA). MGSA is based on a diversified systematic approach, investing in 8 separate strategies across currency, fixed income, equity and commodity markets. The investment approach is a combination of market neutral and short-term directional investing and the returns are expected to have a low correlation to underlying markets over time.

Drew Bradford, Head of Global Client Solutions at Deutsche Bank, said: ”The MGSA Fund will allow investors to gain access to an innovative global  systematic strategy from a highly respected investment manager leveraging the liquidity, transparency and risk management tools of the managed account platform dbSelect.”

Mark Astley, Chief Executive Officer at Millennium Global commented: “The provision of our Systematic Alpha program within the UCITS III framework will afford investors access to a highly liquid and transparent macro strategy. We are delighted to partner with Deutsche Bank given their pre-eminent structuring technology and “best in class” funds platform”.
