T Bailey unveils Growth Fund Lite portfolio

T Bailey has revealed the holdings of its T Bailey growth fund lite, a passive-only fund of funds investing in exchange traded funds and trackers, whichlaunches this week.

The strategic asset allocation, which is subject to small changes, will be 23.37 per cent in North America, 26.04 per cent in the UK, 20.17 per cent in emerging markets, and 13.28% in Europe ex-UK.

Among the top Britain-focused holdings are the BlackRock UK equity tracker and the Fidelity moneybuilder UK index, both at 10 per cent.

At 12 per cent, the HSBC American Index is the largest holding in the North America sector, and the BlackRock Continental European Equity tracker is the largest in Europe ex-UK at 7 per cent.

At 10 per cent, db x-trackers MSCI emerging markets is the most substantial emerging markets holding.

Reforming India: just the beginning

By Kunal Desai, Neptune India Fund

As global investors continue to scour emerging markets through the lens of reform potential, India shines bright. Indeed, we think it can sparkle even brighter.
