Culross was founded in 1992 in London. At its outset, our firm’s main focus was managing fixed income portfolios for our clients. During the course of the 1990s, we began to diversify our client portfolios and in January 2000 we launched our first fund of funds, the Culross Global Fund. This thematic fund remains our firm’s flagship and now has a 17 year track record.
In 2001 we launched our second fund, the Culross Absolute Defensive Fund (originally known as the Culross Arbitrage Fund), a low volatility, market neutral fund designed to be a bond alternative. In 2005 we launched the Culross H Fund, which pursues a high return objective, and in January 2014 we launched a UCITS fund of funds. We continue to evolve our range of products, and in April 2017 we launched a second UCITS fund of funds, the Culross Global Macro Fund, which features weekly investor liquidity and low fees. During the lifetime of our firm Culross has matured from a boutique wealth manager in our early years to become an established institutional firm with more than 90% of our AUM from large international investors.
Alongside our funds, we manage substantial managed accounts for individual clients. These represent bespoke solutions tailored to the client’s individual requirements. We have built an in-house managed account platform to cater for these clients for whom we can offer single theme exposure, or bespoke access to any combination of managers on our approved list.
