Ignis adds sterling & dollar classes to £1.3bn short duration cash fund

Ignis adds sterling & dollar classes to £1.3bn short duration cash fund

Ignis, led by Chris Samuel (pictured), has introduced US dollar and euro share classes on its £1.3 billion Sterling Short Duration Cash fund.

The move allows euro or dollar investors to invest in their base currency without taking exchange rate risk to sterling.

The fund returned 0.89% in the 12 months to the end of January, compared to the UK Interbank 3 month LIBOR benchmark return of 0.51%. 

'2014 is likely to present different challenges as central bank liquidity is gradually un-wound and interest rate expectations begin to rise, which will begin to establish a sense of normality for money markets.

'I am confident that we can continue to deliver for our clients and I look forward to welcoming investors into the new euro and US dollar share classes in due course,'  Brian Jack, head of liquidity, said.
