Insynergy explores the new world

Insynergy Investment Management has teamed up with Kleinwort Benson Investors for the Insynergy new world income fund, to be launched in June.

Insynergy has previously partnered with absolute return managers Odey Asset Management, Gam and Reliance to offer investors global equity, China and India funds.

The new fund is a global emerging markets equity income fund. Insynergy says it gives investors the chance to access countries and companies that have economic winds at their back, pushing them upwards, rather than in their face, pushing them down. Insynergy prefers to call these regions new world rather than emerging market because they believe countries such as Singapore and Hong Kong have already emerged.

The company says that the term New World highlights that the fund is investing in areas across Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East that have some advantages over the West, including stronger population growth, lower wages, being rich in resources and having modest debts.

The Insynergy fund has a target income yield of 4.5 per cent, which it will achieve by investing in equities, with no derivatives being used to boostthe yield. The firm believes its wide geographical net enables it to invest in countries that may have different economic cycles. Companies such as UBS and Polar Capital have recently brought out emerging market equity income fund to meet investor demand for alternatives to UK equity income, so Insynergy is not alone.

Emerging markets can be highly volatile and have traditionally been used for growth rather than income. Some advisers may see these markets as too risky to be the sole focus of an income fund and may prefer a global equity income product.
