Schroder GAIA platform hits $1bn assets under management
Assets under management on Schroders’ alternative Ucits platform Schroder GAIA have reached $1.03bn – 18 months after it launched.
Schroders said the milestone indicated a high level of investor appetite for a regulated and Ucits-compliant hedge fund platform, managed by an investment house.
There are five funds on GAIA; two internal funds and three managed by external hedge fund managers. The most recent addition was the Schroder GAIA CQS Credit.
Gavin Ralston, global head of product at Schroders, said: “A Ucits platform provided by an investment manager, where active management and rigorous oversight are central to the offering, has been well received by investors and the success of Schroder GAIA indicates this. It also recognises Schroders NewFinance Capital, which is constantly looking for suitable partners and only selects top quality hedge fund managers to join the platform.”
