Schroders has launched its Schroder global property securities fund which opens to investors on December 9 2005.
The fund is launched through an alliance between Schroders and US-based global property securities manager EII. The fund’s investment adviser is EII investment manager Jim Rehlaender, supported by two fund managers and a team of five analysts.
The fund is run on an unconstrained total return basis and will aim to outperform the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT global real estate indexes on a 3-5 year rolling basis. The minimum investment is 1,000 and the offer period is 7-9 December 2005.
Schroders head of international property investment and research Neil Turner says: “Schroders alliance with EII allows us to leverage their research capabilities as well as drawing upon their depth of experience of investing in the international property securities market. Coupled with Schroders in-house research of the wider property market and economic cycles, we are confident this fund will provide the means for investors to diversify their portfolio and gain exposure to the global property market.”
