AQR Capital Management has launched the AQR Risk Parity Fund, whose main aim is to seek consistent returns with reduced equity market exposure. 

The fund will invest in bonds and other credit instruments as well as futures contracts, commodities and currencies.

“We believe it provides more meaningful diversification and consistent returns over time than traditional approaches, a portfolio that is more robust in different economic environments, and an opportunity to improve the risk/return characteristics of an overall portfolio,” said David Kabiller, founding principal and head of client strategies at AQR.

“The launch of the Risk Parity Fund demonstrates AQR’s commitment to providing innovative products to mutual fund investors that have previously been available only to large institutions,” Kabiller added.
