Press Release True Partner Advisor and Yuanta Funds

Taipei, Hong Kong - March 8th 2019

Yuanta Securities Investment Trust Co., Ltd. (“Yuanta Funds”) will launch the Yuanta Global Volatility Strategy Futures Trust Fund in June 2019. Yuanta Funds will operate as the Investment Manager of the Fund, whereas True Partner Advisor will be the Discretionary Manager (sub-advisor). SinoPac Bank will be the custodian of the Fund. 

This fund will be the first listed Public Mutual Fund to trade options and futures across global markets, benefitting from changes in market movement around the world. True Partner Advisor’s expertise in volatility trading, combined with the solid track record and distribution power of Yuanta Funds allows Taiwanese retail investors to invest in this specialized trading strategy.

Historically, institutional investors have used volatility strategies as a means to protect their portfolios from market turmoil as typically these strategies do well in periods of rising volatility. The Yuanta Global Volatility Strategy Futures Trust Fund will trade a (relative value) portfolio of listed options contracts on global equity indices. The trading model will determine which options contracts are undervalued (those will be bought) and which options contracts are overvalued (those will be sold). This will result in a variety of volatility spread positions among global markets. (Although the information in this document is believed to be materially correct as at the date of issue, no representation or warranty is given as to the accuracy of any of the information provided. Furthermore no representation or warranty is given in respect of the correctness of the information contained herein as at any future date.) 

“The Fund will be a perfect addition to the range of products and funds that Yuanta Funds offers, allowing retail investors to participate in volatility trading strategies. Given the current market environment, this could be a very interesting investment strategy going forward.”, according to Chairman Tsung-Sheng Liu of Yuanta Securities Investment Trust Co., Ltd. 

“True Partner Advisor is proud to collaborate with Yuanta Funds, one of the trust companies in Taiwan. This great partnership will give Taiwanese investors the opportunity to participate in our global trading strategies.”, according to Ralph van Put, CEO of True Partner Advisor.

全球波動策略期貨信託基金即將募集

元大證券投資信託有限公司(下稱元大投信),將在2019年6月募集元大全球波動策略期貨信託基金。元大投信擔任此基金的投資管理機構(the Investment Manager,即經理公司),並將基金部分資產全權委外操作,而True Partner Advisor Hong Kong Limited(下稱「True Partner Advisor 」)擔任全權委託複委託機構(the Discretionary Manager,即受委任機構),保管銀行為永豐銀行。 

該基金是藉由全球市場波動的影響,透過跨市場交易選擇權商品之波動率而受益的首檔公募期信基金。透過True Partner Advisor在波動率交易方面的專長,加上元大投信堅強的基金管理及行銷能力,使一般投資人也有機會佈局屬於機構法人使用的專業波動控制投資策略。 

事實上,機構法人為免受市場動盪影響,會藉由波動率策略來保護其投資組合,因為這類型策略通常在波動率上升時表現良好。元大全球波動策略期貨信託基金將透過相對價值的概念,對全球股價指數之期權商品進行組合交易。透過交易模型買入被低估的選擇權合約,並賣出被高估的選擇權合約,來調整全球市場的波動價差部位。(以上僅為預估之投資策略或配置,未來實際投資將依公開說明書規範及當時市場環境與經濟狀況而定。) 

元大投信董事長劉宗聖表示,該基金的加入將使得元大投信的基金商品更加完善,也讓一般投資人有機會參與波動性投資策略。鑑於行情波動變化不易預測,避險工具與控制下檔風險勢必將成為投資人投資組合不可或缺之必備元件。

True Partner Advisor執行長Ralph van Put表示,True Partner Advisor很自豪能與台灣的基金公司元大投信合作。這次的合作關係將為台灣投資者提供參與我們全球交易策略的機會。
