Britannic gets earthy with resources fund

Britannic Asset Management is connecting itself to the world&#39s natural strengths with the global resources fund.

Global resources will aim to achieve long term growth. It has been designed with the experienced investor in mind who already has a portfolio and who is looking for a stable investment that will counterbalance other, more risky, investments.

The fund is a unit trust and will invest in a spread of global companies that are involved in natural resources and other related areas of the market. The lion&#39s share of the fund will be in the oil and gas sector, which will make up 56 per cent of it. The rest of the fund will invest in areas such as chemicals, construction and building materials, forestry and paper, mining and the steel industry.

This is Britannic&#39s first resources fund and the company will focus on firms which have a history of strong management and good performance in both bull markets and bear markets. The make-up of the fund will be refined according to the economic climate.

According to Standard & Poor&#39s the Britannic managed portfolio fund is ranked 22 out of 60 funds, based on £1,000 invested on a bid to bid basis with net income reinvested over three years to January 29, 2001.
