Kames Capital launches global diversified growth fund
London-headquartered Kames Capital has launched a global diversified growth fund, domiciled in Dublin and managed by Colin Dryburgh from Kames’ multi-asset team.
The strategy seeks to maximise total return over the medium term (three to five years).
The Kames Global Diversified Growth Fund will consist of a mixture of top-down macroeconomic views with bottom-up stock selection. The portfolio will be comprised of 100 to 200 holdings.
The fund’s investment universe will cover investment grade and high yield bonds, global equities, listed property and listed alternatives, including infrastructure, asset leasing and renewables.
It is understood the fund manager will allocate a percentage of the fund to these asset classes depending on Kames’ macro-economic outlook.
Portfolio manager Colin Dryburgh currently runs the UK-domiciled version of the fund.
The strategy will be available in the UK, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Guernsey, Ireland, Italy, Jersey, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
Its base currency will be Euro, but share classes in US dollar, sterling, Swiss franc and Swedish krona will be available as well.
Stephen Jones, chief investment officer at Kames Capital said: “The launch of the Kames Global Diversified Growth Fund will enable a wider audience to access the expertise of our highly experienced Multi Asset Group (MAG) and proven asset allocation process.”
Kames Capital had €73bn in assets under management as at end March 2016.
