The London-based independent investment manager RWC Partners is launching a Macro Fund, to be managed by Peter Allwright and Stuart Frost, at the end of January 2011 - the firm's first to be domiciled in Ireland.  Subject to approval it will be structured as an open-ended investment company and will be a qualified investment fund. 

Allwright and Frost were previously responsible for the Threadneedle Macro Trading Crescendo Fund and their new fund will replicate this strategy. It will invest in opportunities across liquid markets with a strong emphasis on rates and currencies, the firm said. Equity indices and commodities will also be used to express the macro trading views of the team.

The pair recently assumed responsibility for the RWC Cautious ARC Fund, a low volatility UCITS III vehicle.
