Tilney to diversify via Monaco office

Private-client investment manager Tilney Investment Management has opened an office in Monaco to access the European market with its funds that are geared towards high-net-worth clients.

It is launching a new fund, the Opal alternative growth fund, to assist its expansion in Europe. The fund is a fund of hedge funds offering investors exposure to alternative funds with risk-adjusted returns and low correlation with equities and bonds.

It is the first of several new products Tilney is developing which will be available to high-net-worth European clients and small to medium-sized institutional investors.

Tilney is also expected to launch a new property fund through the Monaco office in the near future.

Tilney Investment Management executive chairman David Campbell says: “Monaco provides an interesting geographical diversification for Tilney and the opportunity to deliver several new alternative products to our existing clients.

“We believe this will be an excellent complement to our current business and further enhance the momentum we are developing in the group.”
