Why Henderson Alternative thinks biotech is still cheap

Things have changed for Henderson Alternative Strategies Trust (HAST) since Ian Barrass took over in 2013.

Last month, he sat down with us to explain how he and co-manager James de Bunsen restructured the underperforming portfolio they inherited.

Barrass also talked about which specialist sectors offer opportunities and how the trust is positioning to deal with the current unstable political climate and macroeconomic uncertainties.

Over the past year HAST, which currently trades at a -14.4% discount, returned 26.1% against a peer average of 16.4%.
