A total of 33 managers now have a Citywire Alt Ucits rating and the newly rated managers include Anthony Clarke and Alan Hofmeyer who manage the MLIS Marshall Wace TOPS Ucits (Mkt Ntrl) EUR C Acc fund. The managers gained a AA rating for a market neutral strategy which aims to hedge forms of market risk.
