Highbridge launches UCITS commodities fund


Highbridge Capital Management, the alternatives investment management arm of JP Morgan Asset Management, has launched a fund offering investors access to a commodity futures strategy in a UCITS format.

The firm says that the new Highbridge Diversified Commodities Fund has been launched due to a high level of demand from clients wishing to gain exposure to pure commodities.

The actively managed fund will invest in 25-30 of the most liquid, major commodities and will have a long bias but will also have the ability to short commodities should the investment team see an opportunity.
