Henderson has expanded its global multi-asset portfolio offering with launch of the Henderson Horizon Global Multi-Asset Fund (SICAV). This is Henderson’s first UCITS multi-asset fund and further broadens the range of global products offered by Henderson Global Investors.
The Fund will be managed by both Bill McQuaker and Paul O’Connor, with additional support provided by Chris Paine, Director of Research. The team has a 10 year track record in multi-asset investing.
The Henderson Horizon Global Multi-Asset Fund will launch upon the merger of the Henderson Diversified Growth SIF, and its initial assets under management will be around £100 million.
The Fund expects to build long term attractive returns with lower volatility than equity markets. This is achieved by making flexible, conviction-led asset allocation decisions across a broad range of asset classes and strategies.
Greg Jones, head of EMEA retail and Latin America says, “The launch of the Henderson Horizon Global Multi-Asset Fund allows clients based outside of the UK to access the skill set of our highly regarded multi-asset team in a structure that is more familiar to them.
“Following the launch of the All Asset Fund in our US mutual range almost three years ago, the new fund will effectively complete the footprint of our global multi-asset offering.”
Bill McQuaker, co-head of multi-asset adds, “The multi-asset market continues to grow, with the total market valued at around £126.5bn.
“The current environment of historically low interest rates and elevated asset prices exposes investors to a range of risks and opportunities.
“By actively managing allocations to a range of asset classes and strategies, we aim to capture returns while protecting investors’ capital during more difﬁcult market environments.”
