Fulcrum Multi Asset Trend is a direct carve out of the trend strategy within Fulcrum Alternative Beta Plus (FAB+) which has been run live since November 2007. It is also used as a strategy within Fulcrum’s flagship fund Fulcrum Diversified Absolute Return. The strategy uses a look back of approximately 3-4 months making this a medium-term trend follower. The strategy targets a volatility range of 10-14% with a long term realised volatility of 11.7% since launch as a UCITS fund. Whilst the strategy has not been managed in single fund format for as long as some of its competitors, the UCITS fund offers an interesting entry point for investors looking for a competitively priced pure trend following strategy with a reasonably high target volatility range. As such we award the fund a three star rating.
