Blackheath Launches First Volatility Arbitrage Fund in Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2010) - Blackheath Fund Management Inc. is proud to launch its newest fund, the Blackheath Volatility Arbitrage Fund, LP ("Vol Arb Fund"), a managed futures fund for Canadian accredited and institutional investors.

The Vol Arb Fund employs a proprietary program to systematically arbitrage volatility across all the major futures options markets. Blackheath is proud to be the first firm in Canada to bring this strategy to investors.

Portfolio Manager Andrew Cumming says, "I've been trading and refining this program over the past fifteen years as a derivatives specialist at Deutsche Bank, Citibank and Scotiabank. This program is the culmination of years of development and is truly the crowning achievement of my career."

This strategy offers returns that are independent of the stock market.

Investment Strategy

The Vol Arb Fund exploits the fact that the implied volatility on options consistently outstrips statistical volatility. The Vol Arb Fund maintains a diversified book of futures and options to exploit this phenomenon on a wide variety of markets including the S&P 500, Gold, Natural Gas, 30 year Bond, Crude and all major currencies.
