Natixis Global Asset Management has launched an alternative mutual fund, ASG Global Macro Fund, managed by AlphaSimplex Group to pursue an absolute-return oriented, long/short strategy that employs a dynamic risk-managed approach to invest across a range of global markets.

The fund will employ a diversified strategy based on macroeconomic principles designed to capitalize on market inefficiencies holding long and short positions derived from a suite of systematic models that identifies investment opportunities arising from interest rate trends, imbalances in asset supply/demand and government monetary policies.

The fund will be co-managed by Alexander Healy, Peter Lee, Philippe Lüdi and Robert Sinnott under the guidance of co-Portfolio Manager Andrew W. Lo, founder and chief investment strategist for ASG.

David Giunta, president and CEO at Natixis Global Asset Management US Distribution, said, "The ASG Global Macro Fund provides a solution by offering tools and techniques more widely available in hedge funds in a ’40 Act structure. It is designed to help broaden portfolio diversification beyond holding long positions in stocks and bonds while also helping to manage overall portfolio risk."
