Hasley places new fund at far end of risk spectrum

Multi-asset boutique Hasley Investment Management is starting a best ideas fund of funds in September that will take a more aggressive investment approach than its existing multi-manager funds.

The company was founded in 2006 and has two funds, multi-strategy and diversifier, as well as running discretionary portfolios.

Both funds rely on alternative asset classes such as investment trusts of hedge funds, absolute return funds and tradeable life policies to reduce risk, but have different risk profiles.

The diversifier fund invests mainly in assets with low correlation to equities while multi-strategy comprises 50 per cent UK and global equities and 50 per cent alternative asset classes.

The new fund will build on the investment strategy behind the existing funds but will have greater flexibility to include assets such as agricultural commodities and precious metals.

Partner Roderick Collins says: “In terms of the risk spectrum on a scale of zero to 10, diversifier is two to four, multi-strategy is four to seven and we found demand for seven to 10. It will mean we can put in some investments with potentially high levels of volatility, or which may be perceived to have higher levels of volatility, that are sound investments.”
