Standard Life Investments GARS fund

 

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

Guy Stern has been managing the fund since 2008 and is surrounded by an experienced team of over 30 people with an absolute return philosophy.



Key equity holdings include direct exposure to European and Global markets. Positions are also taken that look to benefit from one market rising and another falling. For example US Equity large cap v small cap.

The fund has had positive returns for the past 6 calendar years. Stern expects a modest global recovery, with divergence in central bank policy driving returns. Diversifying across strategies, Stern plans to exploit the opportunities presented by geopolitical tensions.
