Insight Investment is looking at increasing sales of its multi-manager absolute return product range to the Continent with a euro-denominated global diversified return fund.The Dublin-domiciled fund is the firm’s second retail absolute return fund. The first – the diversified total return fund – has achieved a total return of 10.3 per cent since launch in 2005. The new fund will provide European investors with access to a wide range of asset classes, which are blended using the Insight alpha investment process, which is used by the diversified total return fund. This process places risk management at the heart of portfolio construction and Insight says more investors want Ucits III funds that have wider investment powers than tradit-ional funds. The diversified total return fund recently demonstrated its use of hedging strategies by taking a position in a structured product which will provide a 165 per cent return on any fall in the Russell 2000 US small cap index and offers capital protection, provided the market does not rise by more than 20 per cent in the next year. This enabled Insight to reflect its view that the rally in small caps relative to large caps over the last three years makes them vulnerable to a sell-off. Bridge: ‘Wider access’
