by

Cantab Capital Partners, the Cambridge-based hedge fund firm led by former Goldman Sachs quantitative strategies chief Ewan Kirk, is working on a UCITS III-compliant version of its offshore CCP Quantitative Fund. The Cantab Quantitative UCITS Fund is expected to roll out in January and will be launched on Matrix Group’s platform.

CCP Quantitative made its debut in March 2007. The fund got off to a solid start, making 8% in the remaining months of that year and posting a 23% gain in 2008. Last year, the fund lost just over 5%.

It is up by some 1.5% this year
