T Bailey is to reduce the annual management charge on its three funds of funds, Wealth Manager can reveal.
Each of the T Bailey Growth, T Bailey Dynamic Cautious Managed, and T Bailey Defensive Cautious Managed funds will cut the fees on their institutional units from 0.75% to 0.6%, subject to regulatory approval.
‘It’s a reasonable price for something you couldn’t put together yourself,’ said the funds’ co-manager Peter Askew (pictured).
The two Cautious Managed funds will also be rebranded simply as T Bailey Dynamic and T Bailey Defensive.
Askew and co-manager Elliot Farley have tended to invest in a variety of lesser-known star funds, such as Citywire AA-rated Thomas Ognar’s Wells Fargo All Cap Growth, alongside highly regarded vehicles like AAA-rated Julie Dean’s Cazenove UK Opportunities.
Since its launch in 1999, the £177 million flagship T Bailey Growth fund has returned 105% compared with an average of 52% from the IMA Global sector. It is also ahead of the peer group average over three and five years.
