Fund objective
DB Platinum IV Systematic Alpha (the "Fund") is an open-ended UCITS compliant fund with Winton Capital Management Ltd (“Winton”) acting as Portfolio Manager. The Investment Strategy is a systematic trend-following strategy based on the Winton Diversified Program as adapted to comply with the UCITS regulation. The underlying investment philosophy is based on observation that markets tend to trend over the short, medium and long-term as result of “herding” behaviour by market participants. The Investment Strategy is a computer-based trading system owned and operated by Winton which is designed to provide a speculative trading of global exchange-traded futures, forwards and options markets on commodities (e.g. energies, base and precious metals and crops), equity indices, bonds, short-term interest rates and currencies. The Fund invests directly in (1) financial futures (including bonds, FX, equity, interest rates), FX forwards, ’Cash Equities Program’ (including equity swaps, CFDs and equity index futures held for hedging purposes) and other OTC derivatives (the "Direct Investments"), (2) transferable securities providing exposure to a basket of commodity futures (the "Commodity Basket"), and (3) sovereign bonds, cash or other cash equivalent securities for cash management purposes. Winton has been appointed as Portfolio Manager of the Fund and is responsible for managing the Direct Investments. Winton is also responsible for determining the composition of the Commodity Basket that is referenced by the transferable securities purchased by the Fund. State Street Global Advisors, as the Investment Manager of the Fund, is responsible for the allocation of cash to support the margin and settlement obligations in relation to the Direct Investments as well as the buying and selling of the transferable securities and for managing the surplus cash.
