Thames River posts £90m inflows

Multi-manager boutique Thames River Capital has posted record inflows of over £90m since its launch in October 2007.

The firm, which has five onshore multi-manager funds captained by Gary Potter and Rob Burdett, delivered its strongest month in November with inflows totalling £6m and expects December to be even stronger. Net sales in the third quarter were over 25 per cent of IMA net fund of fund sales.

The duo attribute the strong relative performance of funds to their defensive positioning and cautious stance. They also point towards the effective beta management of the fund and a bias to first class fund selection, diversification and consistency in recent volatile market conditions.
