Standard Life Investments GARS fund


Citywire Selection Verdict: This fund provides a mix of decorrelated ideas across currencies, interest rates, commodities, equities and bonds.

Guy Stern has been managing the fund since 2008 but there have been some senior departures during 2012 and 2013. Stern is surrounded by an experienced team of 32 people. Having spent time with him and assessed the impact we feel the continuity of the investment process can be maintained.

Key equity holdings include direct exposure to European and Chinese markets. Positions are also taken that look to benefit from one market rising and another falling. For example German equities versus French equities.

On the currency side the dollar is backed versus the euro, Yen and Canadian dollar.
