UCITS FUNDS

At AIF, we believe that an Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) fund is the ultimate financial product. UCITS funds are the new gold standard for investors seeking protection, liquidity and daily valuation.

PAM Alpha Fund (UCITS fund)

UCITS Funds

The PAM Alpha Fund (UCITS) enables investors to access a long-standing, successful, and unique U.S. long-short index strategy. This strategy is perfectly suited for today’s volatile equity markets and uses short-term moves within the S&P®500 to provide investors with a truly alpha-enabled strategy.  

 

How It Works

The PAM Alpha Fund (L/S) invests directly in S&P®500 e-mini future contracts to establish a long/short position based on prevailing market conditions. When the strategy projects an increase in the underlying index, the fund will assume a long position. When the strategy projects falling valuations, a short market position is established. If no market bias is established by the strategy, the fund will take a neutral position within the market.   Each day following the market close, the strategy recalculates market bias based on current price levels and technical trading signals from the underlying index. This approach allows investors to capture short-term, intra-week, prices movements which may otherwise be missed. The average position holding period is just five days, and the fund allows investors to take intra-day gains automatically.   Stop-loss orders are used throughout the process to protect investors from excessive volatility.  

 

Historical Performance

The PAM Alpha Fund (UCITS) strategy has been actively traded since December 2003. Since 2003, the fund has returned 3.2 times* the S&P®500’s performance to investors.  

 

Investor Profile

The PAM Alpha Fund (UCITS) is suitable for institutions, family offices, pension funds, and private banks seeking a medium-term investment with an above-average risk profile. This elevated risk profile enables the excess return observed from the fund over the last 14 years.   Additionally, the fund has demonstrated an exceptionally low correlation with prevailing indices, like the S&P®500, making it an ideal portfolio hedge. This was most recently observed during the European Banking Crisis, when the fund significantly outperformed the majority of benchmark indices. As a result, we recommend clients hold at least 10% of their portfolio within this truly unique fund.   While UCITS funds do provide high levels of investor protection, all investments do involve risks. In addition to market risk, investors outside the European Union should understand the currency risk associated with their investment. For a complete breakdown of the risks involved, please review our investor prospectus.

PAM LONG ONLY (UCITS fund)

UCITS Funds

For investors looking for a long-only approach, the PAM Long Only Fund (UCITS) is a perfect fit. Since 2003, the PAM Long Only fund has used a systematic approach to build and protect capital invested by investors. The PAM Long Only fund is a highly-liquid fund which has demonstrated a low correlation with other benchmark indices.  

 

How It Works

The PAM Long Only Fund (L) invests directly in S&P®500 e-mini future contracts when the strategy projects an appreciation in the underlying index. When falling markets, or neutral markets are projected, the fund will take a neutral position within the market. The fund will never, at any time, assume a net-short position.   Each day following the market close, the strategy recalculates market bias based on current price levels and prevailing marketing conditions. This approach allows investors to capture short-term prices appreciation which may be missed by more passive investors. The average position holding period is just five days, and the fund allows investors to take intra-day gains automatically.   Sell-stop orders are a critical part of the strategy – providing investors with security during periods of market volatility like BREXIT, the election of Donald Trump, or changes to European Central Bank interest rate policy.  

 

Historical Performance

The PAM Long Only Fund (UCITS) strategy has been actively traded since December 2003. Since 2003, the fund has returned 1.6* the S&P®500’s performance to investors.

 

Investor Profile

The PAM Long Only Fund is suitable for institutions, family offices, pension funds, and private banks seeking a medium-term investment with an above-average risk profile. This fund is perfectly suited for investors who wish to take a long only approach to invest and do not wish to be short the overall market.   The fund is truly unique within the investment space, and has demonstrated historically low correlations with other long only funds and indices. These characteristics make PAM Long Only fund a perfect hedge vehicle for individual investors and institutions, alike.   While UCITS funds do provide high levels of investor protection, all investments do involve risks. In addition to market risk, investors outside the European Union should understand the currency risk associated with their investment. For a complete breakdown of the risks involved, please review our investor prospectus.

CoCo Alpha Bond Fund (UCITS)

UCITS Funds

The CoCo Alpha Bond Fund provides investors with a diversified basket of bonds which are hand-selected for today’s historically low interest rate environment. This approach combines bottom-up security selection with dynamic sector allocation to produce predictable income for investors.

 

How It Works

Every position within the Coco Alpha Bond Fund is actively managed. This means that investors have a team of industry experts working to anticipate and navigate challenging market environments. The fund dynamically shifts sector and duration exposure across two types of bonds: investment grade and high yield bonds.   Investment grade (IG) bonds are a safer investment than their high-yield counterparts. IG bonds make up 45.8% of the fund’s holdings, and are positioned to deliver investors with a consistent, and predictable, income stream. These bonds are issued by established firms, but carry a lower rate of return and higher interest rate risk. With interest rates near zero percent across Europe, generating return and income with IG bonds has become increasingly difficult.   High yield bonds make up 54.2% of the fund’s holdings, and are positioned to provide clients with above average yield and a hedge against rising interest rates. Compared to their investment grade counterparts, high yield bonds carry a higher rate of return and lower interest rate risk. CoCo Alpha Bond Fund managers work to ensure that high yield bonds within the fund are issued by firms which have the capacity to make good on their payment promises.

 

Historical Performance

The CoCo Alpha Bond Fund returned 3.55% during 2016, outpacing peers within the bond fund space. The fund has posted a strong start to 2017, up 0.26% and 0.48% during January and February, respectively.

 

Investor Profile

The CoCo Alpha Bond Fund is specifically designed for institutions, family offices, pension funds, and private banks who are seeking a mix of high yield and investment grade bond exposure. Just as an equity portfolio should be diversified, bond investors can benefit from diversifying across the credit rating and duration spectrum.
