Unigestion has announced the launch of Uni-Global Cross Asset Navigator, a daily-liquidity, UCITS IV-compliant fund, targeting a return of three-month Libor +4%.

The fund actively allocates across asset classes based on an assessment of the risks associated with the prevailing macroeconomic backdrop.

Unigestion’s 15-strong Cross Asset Solutions team is headed by Jérôme Teiletche. The Navigator’s portfolio management team is composed of the team of three managers hired last year – Jérôme, Olivier Blin and Guilhem Savry.

The managers comment on their asset allocation: “While we have a preference for growth assets, we think that the road ahead will be bumpy and volatile and that a number of government bonds will not offer the protection they have historically. This leads us to favour other types of strategies such as momentum or specific hedging strategies.”

“We are also seeking to benefit from opportunities in foreign exchange linked to the diverging economic cycles in North America and Europe, and from disruptions triggered by the oil crash. The global deflationary context means we are holding next to no commodities at the moment” they add.
