Union Bancaire Privee announced its addition of Baltimore-based alternative investment manager Campbell & Co. Investment Adviser LLC to its alternative UCITS platform.
The new absolute return strategy was launched in partnership with UBP and aims to provide a balanced risk-reward profile across a broad range of market conditions through systematic investments in a diversified portfolio.
Campbell & Co. is one of the longest running CTAs around having been started by Keith Campbell in 1972. The firm today manages $1.7 billion in systematic strategies and has 70 employees with offices in Baltimore and New York.
“We are extremely excited to partner with UBP,” said William Andrews, CEO at Campbell. “As a leader in the global wealth management industry UBP is ideally situated to help us bring the strategy to market. UBP’s combination of investment product expertise and deep client relationships across the globe are the perfect complement for Campbell’s systematic multi-strategy investment experience.”
One of the pioneers in global systematic investing, Campbell is constantly updating and developing its models. In this offering, the underlying investment strategies include systematic macro, short-term, trend-following and quant equity strategies.
UBP’s alternative UCITS platform also includes partnerships with Trend Capital, Cheyne, GCA, and Shannon River.
Commenting on the launch, Nicolas Faller, Co-CEO Asset Management at UBP, added: “We are very happy to partner with Campbell, who have such a long history and proven track record in systematic investing. We believe that given the current uncertainties in the market, a systematic strategy offering liquidity, diversification and decorrelation to traditional assets is an attractive investment proposal for investors.”
