BNY Mellon Investment Management has announced the opening of its Ucits Dynamic Total Return Fund, $1bn (€0.92bn) vehicle was previously limited to US investors.
The BNY Mellon Dynamic Total Return Fund is the latest addition to BNY Mellon’s multi-asset range and will replicate the strategy of its US counterpart with the aim of keeping pace with global equity markets while also managing volatility and cushioning any market falls.
It will be managed by the multi-asset team at Mellon Capital Management, one of BNY Mellon’s investment boutiques, and led by Vassilis Dagioglu. Dagioglu is also lead manager on the US vehicle.
The Dublin-domiciled Ucits fund is aimed at investors seeking to achieve managed growth with a lower drawdown. The portfolio primarily uses futures to gain exposure to global equity and bond markets. It also invests in more specialist asset classes such as currencies, commodities and inflation-protected securities.

The Dynamic Total Return Fund provides our clients with access to an equity-like target return product alongside our existing suite of absolute return and total return products. It fits perfectly into our range as we continue to build out our offering in this space. The European launch of the Dynamic Total Return Fund gives clients the opportunity to invest in a strategy with a 10 year track record and the chance to benefit from Mellon Capital’s 25 years’ experience in the multi-asset space.”
