Aspect CEO Anthony Todd

Aspect Capital has broadened its multi-strategy offering by partnering with a US mutual fund platform to deliver a new product.

The London-based systematic specialist is launching the Catalyst/Aspect Enhanced Multi-Asset Fund (CASIX) with Catalyst Funds.

It will combine a liquid long-only 60/40 portfolio with a “multi asset-based ‘trend following’ overlay to create a cash-efficient investment,” according to a statement from the two firms.

“Against one of the most challenging economic backdrops in several decades, investors are increasingly looking for diversifying, liquid, and cash efficient investment strategies,” said Anthony Todd, CEO of Aspect Capital.

“By combining Catalyst’s long-term experience in the retail fund marketplace with our expertise in developing quantitative investment solutions, we are confident that the Catalyst/Aspect Enhanced Multi-Asset Fund is well positioned to meet investors’ requirements.”
