What's Trending: A Different Point of Skew July 2023

Sudden market shocks often bring into question trend-following's 'crisis alpha' credentials: its convexity profile or skewness. Aren't trend-following strategies supposed to protect on the downside? The answer lies in the period over which we want protection.

What’s Trending: Trend-following – What’s Not to Like? May 2023

Man AHL – Investing For You

Our Expertise


Investors should note that, relative to the expectations of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers, this Strategy presents disproportionate communication on the consideration of non-financial criteria.

One should carefully consider the risks associated with investing, whether the strategy suits your investment requirements and whether you have sufficient resources to bear any losses which may result from an investment:

  • Investment Objective Risk - There is no guarantee that the Strategy will achieve its investment objective.

  • Market Risk - The Strategy is subject to normal market fluctuations and the risks associated with investing in international securities markets and therefore the value of your investment and the income from it may rise as well as fall and you may not get back the amount originally invested.

  • Counterparty Risk - The Strategy will be exposed to credit risk on counterparties with which it trades in relation to on-exchange traded instruments such as futures and options and where applicable, ‘over-the- counter’("OTC","non-exchange") transactions. OTC instruments may also be less liquid and are not afforded the same protections that may apply to participants trading instruments on an organised exchange.

  • Currency Risk - The value of investments designated in another currency may rise and fall due to exchange rate fluctuations. Adverse movements in currency exchange rates may result in a decrease in return and a loss of capital. It may not be possible or practicable to successfully hedge against the currency risk exposure in all circumstances.

  • Liquidity Risk - The Strategy may make investments or hold trading positions in markets that are volatile and which may become illiquid. Timely and cost efficient sale of trading positions can be impaired by decreased trading volume and/or increased price volatility.

  • Concentration Risk - The Strategy invests in a limited number of investments may be held which can increase the volatility of performance.

  • Financial Derivatives - The Strategy will invest financial derivative instruments ("FDI") (instruments whose prices are dependent on one or more underlying asset) to achieve its investment objective. The use of FDI involves additional risks such as high sensitivity to price movements of the asset on which it is based. The extensive use of FDI may significantly multiply the gains or losses.

  • Leverage - The Strategy's use of FDI may result in increased leverage which may lead to significant losses.

  • Emerging Markets - The Strategy may invest a significant proportion of its assets in securities with exposure to emerging markets which involve additional risks relating to matters such as the illiquidity of securities and the potentially volatile nature of markets not typically associated with investing in other more established economies or markets.

  • Non-Investment Grade Securities - The Strategy may invest a significant proportion of its assets in non-investment grade securities (such as “high yield” securities) are considered higher risk investments that may cause income and principal losses for the Strategy. They are instruments which credit agencies have given a rating which indicates a higher risk of default. The market values for high yield bonds and other instruments tend to be volatile and they are less liquid than investment grade securities.

Canada: No securities commission or similar authority in Canada has reviewed or in any way passed upon this document or the merits of the securities described herein and any representation to the contrary is an offence.

This is not the final offering memorandum but rather a preliminary description of the investment opportunity which has been prepared solely for the benefit of accredited investors who are also permitted clients under applicable Canadian securities laws. If and when the final offering memorandum is prepared, only accredited investors (who are, where applicable, also permitted clients) entitled under applicable Canadian securities laws in the relevant Canadian offering jurisdictions will be entitled to participate in the offering.
Securities legislation in certain of the Canadian jurisdictions provides purchasers pursuant to an offering memorandum with a remedy for damages or rescission, or both, in addition to any other rights they may have at law, where the offering memorandum and any amendment to it contains a “misrepresentation” . Where used herein, “misrepresentation” means an untrue statement of a material fact or an omission to state a material fact that is required to be stated or that is necessary to make any statement not misleading in light of the circumstances in which it was made. These remedies, or notice with respect to these remedies, must be exercised or delivered, as the case may be, by the purchaser within the time limits prescribed by applicable securities legislation.

Section 130.1 of the Securities Act (Ontario) provides that every purchaser of securities pursuant to an offering memorandum shall have a statutory right of action for damages or rescission against the issuer in the event that the offering memorandum contains a misrepresentation. A purchaser who purchases securities offered by an offering memorandum during the period of distribution has, without regard to whether the purchaser relied upon the misrepresentation, a right of action for damages or, alternatively, while still the owner of the securities, for rescission against the issuer and the selling security holders, provided that:

  1. if the purchaser exercises its right of rescission, it shall cease to have a right of action for damages against the issuer;
  2. the issuer will not be liable if they prove that the purchaser purchased the securities with knowledge of the misrepresentation;
  3. the issuer will not be liable for all or any portion of damages that it proves do not represent the depreciation in value of the securities as a result of the misrepresentation relied upon; and
  4. in no case shall the amount recoverable exceed the price at which the securities were offered.

Section 138 of the Securities Act (Ontario) provides that no action shall be commenced to enforce these rights more than:

  1. in the case of an action for rescission, 180 days from the day of the transaction that gave rise to the cause of action; or
  2. in the case of an action for damages, the earlier of:
  3. 180 days from the day that the purchaser first had knowledge of the facts giving rise to the cause of action; or
  4. three years from the day of the transaction that gave rise to the cause of action.

The rights referred to in section 130.1 of the Securities Act (Ontario) do not apply in respect of an offering memorandum delivered to a prospective purchaser in connection with a distribution made in reliance on the exemption from the prospectus requirement in section 2.3 of National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus and Registration Exemptions (the “accredited investor” exemption) if the prospective purchaser is:

  1. a Canadian financial institution or a Schedule III bank,
  2. the Business Development Bank of Canada incorporated under the Business Development Bank of Canada Act (Canada), or
  3. a subsidiary of any person referred to in paragraphs (a) and (b), if the person owns all of the voting securities of the subsidiary, except the voting securities required by law to be owned by directors of that subsidiary.

The foregoing summary is subject to the express provisions of the Securities Act (Ontario) and the regulations, rules and instruments thereunder, and reference is made to the complete text of such provisions contained therein. Such provisions may contain limitations and statutory defenses on which the issuer may rely. The enforceability of these rights may be limited.

Similar rights may be available to investors resident in other Canadian jurisdictions under local provincial securities laws.

The issuer and related entities, their affiliates, and their respective shareholders, members, partners, managers, directors, officers, principals, employees and agents, are not registered with or licensed by any securities regulatory authority in Canada and, accordingly, the protections available to clients of a registered adviser, dealer or investment fund manager will not be available to purchasers in Canada.
