The WSJ Uncovers a 'Democratic' Hedge-Like Mutual Fund

by: Hung Tran

The Wall street Journal has uncovered a diversified alternative mutual fund that aims to introduce esoteric strategies familiar with the hedge fund crowd.

The Frost Diversified Strategies Fund reportedly employs statistical arbitrage, long-short equity investing and global macro strategiies, while also bettting on exchange-traded products in the stock and bond markets, plus up to 10 percent in cash equivalents. Tom Stringfellow, president of Frost Investment Advisors [see profile], dubbed the strategy as a "Democratization of the hedge fund".

The nascent offering, which made its debut in January, has reportedly gathered $14.5 million in assets. It charges a 200 basis points expense ratio and a 575 bps maximum sales charge. It currently counts Natixis Funds ASG Global Alternatives Fund and the IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker exchange-traded fund as top holdings in its portfolio.
