In compiling this table where different classes of the same fund qualified, the US Dollar version is shown.


The emboldened funds are either CTAs or systematic macro managers. The two funds with asterisks both employ systematic strategies – The Cambridge Strategy invests sytematically in currencies of both developed economies and emerging economies, whilst Idalion Capital invests in global macro/emerging markets  strategies using a combination of systematic and discretionary approaches.

Including the two asterisked managers or not, half the 30 top-performing funds of this year run by UK hedge fund managers are CTAs, run managed futures programmes, or engage in systematic investment strategies.
