Arqaam Capital launches global macro fund

Dubai-based investment firm Arqaam Capital has launched a global macro systematic fund in an attempt to broaden its asset range.

Areski Iberrakene, chief investment officer, will manage the Cayman Islands-domiciled fund. He is the founder of UK-based Areski Capital and formerly managed equity and credit derivatives for  Dresdner Kleinwort.

Dennis Wijsmuller, chief operating officer at Arqaam Capita, said the launch was a “key milestone for our alternatives investments business”.

The multi-asset fund aims to generate positive returns in all market conditions by deploying a series of strategies.

“I believe that the Arqaam platform gives us a stronger opportunity to grow assets and awareness of our unique strategy given its multi-asset, liquid and de-correlated profile,” said Iberrakene.
