Gottex launches Multi-Asset Growth Fund

Monday, June 22, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - Gottex Asset Management (UK) Limited, one of the leading independent global asset management groups, has launched its Multi-Asset Growth Fund.

The Fund will be managed by James Hughes, who joined Gottex from HSBC last year specifically to develop the range of multi-asset solutions at Gottex.

The Fund is a globally diversified daily dealing UCITS strategy investing across a broad range of asset classes including global equities, fixed income, emerging markets, real estate, infrastructure, commodities and hedge funds, with a skew towards alternatives. The Fund will target returns of 7%-10% per annum over rolling 3-5 year periods and launches with an external seed investment of US$50 million. The Fund aims to leverage Gottex’s proven long-term track record in managing alternative assets, whilst adding traditional assets to create a unique and compelling investment proposition.

The fees are structured competitively, with a range of institutional and wholesale pricing available. A-Shares have a minimum subscription of US$1,000 with management fees of 0.65% per annum and I-Shares have a minimum subscription of US$5 million with management fees of 0.5% per annum. There is also a special ‘founders share-class’ available until assets reach US$100 million.

James Hughes, Managing Director Multi-Asset Solutions, said: “We’re thrilled to be launching the Gottex Multi-Asset Growth Fund at this point in time. Our philosophy centres on a ‘safety first’ approach seeking alternative sources of return by identifying opportunities across a diverse range of asset classes and geographies. This enables us to both protect and grow assets over time and we believe will appeal to a wide range of investors as a ‘core’ allocation to meet their long-term investment goals. It’s particularly exciting to be launching this multi-asset fund as a part of Gottex Asset Management given their long and successful history of managing alternative investments globally.”

Joachim Gottschalk, Gottex Chief Executive Officer, commented: “I am delighted to announce the expansion of our product range in Europe with this new multi-asset UCITS fund. The DNA of Gottex’s business, historically focusing on alternative investment, allows a natural expansion into multi-asset solutions and provides our clients access to complementary return streams. Bringing together our leading-edge alternatives and risk management platform to support the creation of a broader client offering in the multi-asset space allows Gottex to access a much wider range of investors for the first time. This is the first step in creating a suite of multi-asset products to support the ever increasing demand for ‘core’ multi-asset solutions.”

Arpad (Arki) Busson, Chairman of Gottex, added: “This is a major step forward for the Gottex Group and the development of its multi-asset offering. Gottex has a long and successful history of leveraging unique relationships with asset managers to access the best talent, as well as allocating investors’ capital across asset classes in an efficient and cost effective manner. We have applied these skills to create an extremely compelling multi-asset fund catering for investors who are increasingly concerned about market dynamics given the relatively high valuations across many assets classes at present. Furthermore, we believe multi-asset solutions are ideally placed to meet the demands of increasing levels of complexity across investments coupled with heightened regulatory oversight and governance requirements, at the same time as providing attractive returns to investors.”
