Refco Alternative Investments, a futures and commodity trading advisor specialist, is planning to expand into the institutional market in Scandinavia and France and develop further in Switzerland and Germany. Its client base is largely family offices, private banks and high-net-worth individuals, but it will now target European pension funds, according to Pierre Maliczak, head of Europe in London. Maliczak is expecting European investors to invest 3-5% of their total assets in futures or CTAs. The manager plans to launch two new products in the new year aimed at institutional investors, he concluded, declining to provide further details regarding the new products.

Additionally, Jan de Smedt has been hired as v.p. of European sales in London, to help in the European growth strategy. He was previously a director at Liability Solutions.
