Opalesque Industry Update - Henderson Global Investors (North America) Inc. has launched the Henderson All Asset Fund. The Fund seeks to achieve long-term growth of capital with lower volatility through flexible asset allocation across a wide range of asset classes around the world.|
"We believe there has never been a better time to invest in a Fund that gives its portfolio managers the ability to dynamically allocate assets in response to the ever-changing economic environment that investors currently face," said Chuck Thompson, Director of US Retail at Henderson Global Investors. "We believe that our approach offers investors a robust, all-weather portfolio, combining dynamic asset allocation, diversified portfolio construction and efficient implementation of investment ideas."
The Henderson All Asset Fund is structured as a multi-asset portfolio which has the ability to invest in a broad range of traditional and alternative asset classes, including equities, bonds, property, private equity, commodities, currency and cash. The Fund is co-managed by Bill McQuaker and Chris Paine, an established, award-winning management team with 43 years of combined investment management experience.
"As co-managers, Bill and Chris offer investors the best of both worlds," said Thompson. "Bill looks at the world from a qualitative perspective through the lens of his years of asset allocation experience, while Chris adds rigorous systematic analysis to the process. We believe this complementary approach leads to a truly differentiated investment strategy."
McQuaker, with more than 26 years of experience in the investment management industry, currently serves as Henderson's Head of Multi-Asset, Head of Multi-Manager and a member of the Fixed Income Investment Strategy Group. Paine has more than 17 years of industry experience and joined Henderson in 2000 from NPI Asset Management where he was a Quantitative Analyst. He also serves as the Co-Lead Manager of the Henderson Diversified Growth Strategy and the Henderson Diversified Growth Funds.
McQuaker and Paine, along with the Henderson Diversified Growth Team, were recently awarded the Multi-Asset Manager of the Year 2011 Award by The UK Pensions Awards 2011, which is run by Professional Pensions.
