The Ucits fund will be registered in England and Wales and sit in the Investment Associations Targeted Absolute Return sector.It will be co-managed by the groups co-head of global bonds, Nick Maroutsos, and portfolio managers Dan Siluk and Tim Winstone, and will followthe same investment approach as the existing $9.3bn Absolute Return Income strategy.

Nick Maroutsossaid: Our aim is to provide positive returns but with an emphasis on low volatility and low correlation to other asset classes. We start with a clean slate not a benchmark index and look globally for opportunities to generate income and capture relative value.

The launch of this fund allows us to optimise our core investments to maximise risk-adjusted returns for investors based in the region.
