Nordic group Jyske Capital has launched a Ucits-compliant version of its long-running global multi-asset fund to tap into a wider investment audience, Citywire Selector has learned.
The new fund will mirror the €253 million Jyske Capital International Stable Strategy, which was launched in 2000 for Danish investors.
This fund invests across bonds and equities from global issuers, with an emphasis on fixed income allocations. In the existing fund, around 75% of its investments are in bonds.
Management of the fund will be overseen by the same team running the existing fund, which is led by Andreas Weihrauch, who has a focus on tactical asset allocation.
A spokesperson for Jyske Capital confirmed that the Ucits-compliant version of the fund was launched at the start of February this year.
The fund is currently registered for sale in Luxembourg, Germany, Norway and Sweden. There are plans to develop into other markets but no firm commitments have been made.
On a three-year, total return basis, the Jyske Capital International Stable Strategy returned 11.6% against a rise of 23% by its Citywire-assigned benchmark, the LCI Mixed Asset EUR Cons – Global, over the same period to the end of January 2017.
