It will aim for a gross yield 25 per cent higher than the yield of the MSCI All Countries World index and an estimated yield at launch of 4 per cent.

It will be in the Investment Management Association new global equity income sector. Annual charge is 1.5 per cent.

Head of retail sales Ben Waterhouse says: “We have seen huge demand for equity income products in this environment of low economic growth and market volatility.

“Daniel has a proven track record and, with access to our global network of analysts, we believe we have a competitive edge in evaluating opportunities for income around the world.”
