Financial Standard- DWS Investments could well be one of the pioneers of a new era in hedge funds when it launched a new product that offers daily liquidity and pricing to retail investors.
DWS Investments, Deutsche Bank’s global retail asset management arm, last week launched the DWS Strategic Value Fund (Enhanced Liquidity) – a product designed to give exposure to an actively managed, multi-strategy, fund-of-hedge funds.
According to Jody Fitzgerald, investment specialist at DWS Investments, the underlying DWS Strategic Value Fund will face no changes to its operations or strategy as a direct result of the heightened liquidity.
“The liquidity is being synthetically organised outside the fund. The Strategic Value Fund is the underlying product, and sitting outside the fund are investment certificates issued by Deutsche Bank. These certificates are the ones that will provide the liquidity," said Fitzgerald.
