UK – International alternative investment management company, Man Investment Products (MIP), has launched its latest capital guaranteed product, Man Multi-Strategy Series 3 Ltd, which will be available in both US$ and Euro class bonds.

The new series is expected to have annualised returns of 18%, whilst aiming to restrict volatility to around 13% for each class of bond.

The investment strategies to be included in the Series 3 portfolio can be classified into four broad categories:
•securities selection (long/short)
•event driven
•managed futures
•market neutral and arbitrage

The multi-strategy approach is designed to improve the stability of returns by avoiding over-concentration in any given asset class, sector or strategy, say Man.

Christoph Moeller, director of sales and marketing at MIP, adds: “This multi-strategy approach has already demonstrated its ability to achieve impressive gains combined with relatively low volatility.”
