Geneva based Quaero Capital has announced its Real Assets fund is now available under the Ucits format.
Launched in 2012 and managed by Marc Ebert, the ‘Argos Real Assets Fund’ invests primarily in equities and Reits in developed markets across the world to provide exposure to four key sub-classes: infrastructure, real estate, forestry assets and agricultural assets.
The fund has no leverage, no shorting, no hedge fund holdings or private equity.
It aims to produce substantial long-term capital growth but also a high degree of liquidity.
“I’m delighted that after just over three years we can now offer our Real Asset fund within a Ucits structure, given the importance attached to such status by fund selectors.
“Real assets such as infrastructure, real estate and agricultural land are offering exposure to very regular cash flows directly attached to ownership of land through a diversified portfolio of liquid stocks. This provides investors some interesting hedge in period of economic hardship and inflation.” said Quaero’s CEO Jean Keller.
The Real Assets Fund joins five other Quaero mutual funds, under the firm’s Sicav umbrella :
- Argos Real Assets
- Argos Yield Opportunities
- Argos International Equities
- Argos Global Conservative Portfolio
- Argos Global Balanced Portfolio
- Argos Global Dynamic Portfolio
All six funds are registered for public distribution in Switzerland, France, Luxembourg and the UK.
Quaero Capital was founded in 2005 in Geneva as Argos Investment Managers.
