Polin believes that both areas have started to show signs of growth and wants to get involved before they start to accelerate rapidly.
He says: “We already have some global equity exposure and we would like to build this further as asset flows are moving in that direction in the likes of pension funds.
“Alternatives has also continued to grow, with wider powers being made available and leading to strong performers like BlackRock UK absolute alpha. It is somewhere where we already have some expertise but we would like to continue building.”
Polin says additions in both areas could come through joint ventures or in-house expertise.
Resolution has already launched four joint ventures in Argonaut, Cartesian, Hexam and multi-manager Maia and Polin has indicated that UK equity income is still top of his list of future offerings. He says: “It is a big area that we have always looked at and it is a case of finding the right people for the job that are available to do it.”
