Deutsche Xenon Alpha Plus2 launches a new generation investment opportunity for retail investors

Deutsche Xenon Alpha Plus2 Limited, a member of the Deutsche Bank Group, has just launched itssecond fund of hedge funds offering for the Australian retail investor, Xenon Alpha Plus2.

“Xenon Alpha Plus2 has been created to give Australian retail investors access to a new generation ofalternative investment technology and exposure to international investments,” says Ian Martin,Executive Director Deutsche Xenon Alpha Plus2. “We believe investors are now looking for capitalstability in the alternative investment environment.”

While Xenon Alpha Plus2 aims to deliver capital stability through exposure to funds of hedge fundsthat aim to produce positive returns even in down markets, it is not a capital guaranteed product. Thefunds of hedge funds are managed by New York based Ivy Asset Management and MeridianDiversified Fund Management - both have been chosen because of their historical ability to generategenerally positive returns in most market conditions.

Deutsche Bank’s Head of Retail Distribution Paul Banks explains, “When compared with the historicalrisk-adjusted returns of traditional equities and fixed income markets, we believe Xenon Alpha Plus2 iswell positioned to generate superior risk-adjusted returns over a medium investment term of just underfour years.” Deutsche Xenon quotes the S&P/ASX 200 Accumulation Index, the S&P 500Accumulation Index and the UBS Composite Bond Index when referring to traditional equities and fixed income markets.

Through leveraging, Deutsche Xenon is able to increase the effect of each dollar invested. “Theproduct includes leverage so that investors can gain exposure to the funds of hedge funds of up to$5.25 for every $1 invested. This leverage therefore magnifies any gains or losses in the value of theinvestment.” comments Banks. “With internal leveraging and investors’ liability limited to their originalinvestment we look forward to the success of Xenon Alpha Plus2 in Australia’s growing alternativeinvestment market.

”Xenon Alpha Plus2 opened on 21 March and closes 12 May 2005. A minimum investment of $5,000is required.
