Investec launches multi-asset protector

Investec has the launched the multi-asset protector fund which aims to provide cautious investors access to the market through a multi-asset portfolio while providing and 80 per cent protection barrier against equity market falls. The fund will be managed by Max King and Philip Saunders.

The fund aims to provide long-term gains with lower risk and volatility levels than an equity-only portfolio. It provides for investment exposure across a diversified class of assets including equities, bonds, commodities, alternatives and currencies. It will also use low cost passive investments such as index funds and exchange traded funds.

The dynamic asset allocation will allow the portfolio to divert to cash when markets fall. For further security the fund will invest in a derivative contract with a single counterparty.
