BarCap offers medium-term volatility in Ucits III form

Medium-term volatility works as a buy-and-hold investment, says Antti Suhonen

Barclays Capital launched a Euro Mid-Term Volatility Fund on 16 May, providing investors with exposure to implied European equity volatility within a Ucits III framework.
