RCM to launch global emerging markets multi-asset fund

RCM is planning to launch a low volatilty global emerging markets multi-asset fund in the second quarter of 2011.

The GEM multi-asset fund will invest across equities, bonds and commodities in the sector and will is designed to produce downside protection when markets come under pressure.

RCM multi-asset chief investment officer Herold Rohweder says: “We would advise investors who want to increase their allocations to global emerging market equities to be mindful of the volatility that can be associated with such a strategy, and therefore urge those sensitive to this to consider a multi-asset approach as an engineered solution offering similar returns with lower levels of volatility than a pure equity portfolio. This is just as valid for both DC and DB investors.”
