James Hambro & Partners launches multi-asset fund

James Hambro & Partners launches multi-asset fund

James Hambro & Partners is seeking to broaden its reach with the launch of a multi-asset fund for smaller clients.

The James Hambro Portfolio fund is managed by William Van Straubenzee and Charles Underwood, who are both partners at the boutique, which was founded by Jamie Hambro (pictured).

The Ucits fund will target between 30 and 50 holdings in direct securities and funds, and will have the flexibility to allocate across a range of asset classes. Underwood and Van Straubenzee are currently allocating around 70% towards equities, 15% in fixed income, with the remainder in alternatives and cash.

Partner John Langrish said the team felt the fund was a good way to offer clients that are below their minimum investment level of £1 million access to their multi-asset investment proposition.

‘It will be very similar in terms of giving clients the best investment in each asset class at an affordable price without needing an absolute minimum investment,’ he said.

He said it had been launched on the back of demand, but was unlikely to be marketed to the retail market more broadly in the near future.
