Threadneedle launches Dynamic Real Return fund for Nangle

Threadneedle launches Dynamic Real Return fund for Nangle

Threadneedle Investments has launched a long-only multi-asset fund for manager Toby Nangle, targeting equity-like returns with lower volatility.

The unconstrained fund allows Nangle, the firm’s head of multi-asset allocation, to invest across equities, fixed income, commodities, property cash and alternatives.

Nangle will aim to deliver returns in line with equities over a three to five year time horizon, or CPI plus 4%, but with only two-thirds the volatility of equities.

The firm said it aims to provide a positive return over a maximum period of three years, regardless of market conditions.

Nangle said: ‘By taking a dynamic approach to asset allocation, and with the flexibility to invest in broad range of asset classes including commodities, property and cash, we expect to enhance risk-adjusted returns.

‘As the future of the global economy remains uncertain, and unconventional measures are being used to manage liquidity, active multi-asset products can offer investors a more effective way to balance risk and return than traditional equity/bond funds.’

Nangle will be supported by head of managed funds Alex Lyle and the company's Asset Allocation Strategy group.

The fund, which is structured as a non-Ucits retail Oeic, sits in the revamped IMA Targeted Absolute Return Sector.

The clean share class has an annual management charge of 0.75%.
