Estlander unveils UCITS version of blended managed futures strategy


Helsinki-based Estlander & Partners has launched a UCITS III-compliant version of its Estlander Freedom Fund – a blended strategy that offers combined exposure to the strategies run by two of its managed futures funds, Global XL and Alpha Trend.

Estlander & Partners Freedom Fund UI is German-domiciled and provides daily liquidity to investors. The underlying strategies allocate risk exposure dynamically between four asset classes: equity indices, interest rates, currencies and commodity indices.

Both underlying managed futures strategies have long track records dating back almost 20 years. Global XL debuted in August 1991 and has annualised at 11.7% since launch.
