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. There was a spate of key departures about a year ago but we believe the continuity of the process and absolute return philosophy has been maintained.
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 German equities versus French equities.
At times the fund goes through pedestrian performance, but it returned a solid 6% in 2014. Stern expects a modest global recovery, a reduction in quantitative easing and central bank actions continuing to add volatility in markets.
