QS Investors is seeking to raise $1 billion for a fund that will invest in global bond and currency forwards, The Wall Street Journal reports. The Liquid Alpha Fund will seek to be an inflation hedge in the current low interest-rate environment to investors.
The Ucits fund will seek bond-like volatility of about 5%, but use long-short global bond futures and currency forwards to add value, while being duration neutral. QS Investors was spun off from Deutsche Bank’s institutional asset management operations in 2010.
