SLI chief Skeoch gives Gars full backing after ‘strange year’

Standard Life Investment’s chief executive officer has defended the long-term track record of its flagship Gars fund after an admittedly ‘strange’ year for the giant multi-strategy approach.

Speaking exclusively to Citywire, Keith Skeoch said the fund had proven its ability to ‘endure’ despite posting underwhelming returns over the course of 2016.

In a show of support, Skeoch said he has his entire SIPP (Self-Invested Personal Pension) currently exposed to the fund.

Also in this video, Skeoch discussed the potential capacity constraints on the fund and what areas of the market had aided stronger year-to-date returns.
