"Demand for managed futures funds is predominantly being driven by investors seeking to hedge against risks caused by high inflation, a low USD, poor equity markets and a global shortage of capital funding," Bernd Kreuzinger, Director of Superfund Financial (Middle East) Ltd., said.

Given investors today are far more aware of the need to structure portfolios with low correlating assets, we expect to see a local resurgence in managed futures fund investment."

A managed futures fund is a highly sophisticated alternative investment that allows investors to potentially benefit from both upward and downward trends in commodity and financial markets.

Superfund funds utilise fully automated proprietary trading systems to remove emotional factors from the investment decision-making process.

The Superfund flagship fund, the Superfund Q-AG, has generated an annualised return of 19 per cent since its inception in March 1996 and 31.2 per cent year-to-date. The innovative Superfund gold fund, which follows a similar trading strategy to Superfund Q-AG but is tied to the performance of gold, was launched as a SICAV Fund in Luxembourg in November 2007 (Superfund Gold A) has since generated a return of 45.70 per cent. The more dynamic Superfund Gold B SICAV is up 46.38per cent YTD and 47.71per cent since inception.
