Axa Investment Managers launches multi-asset fund

Multi sectorAXA Investment Managers has launched a multi-asset fund which uses listed derivatives to adjust exposure across  asset classes and regions. The AXA WF Global Optimal Income fund is a Luxembourg-domiciled Sicav. The asset manager says the fund takes a “highly flexible and unconstrained approach to asset allocation”. While the equities component comprises equities from developed and emerging markets, the fixed income component tactically allocates to emerging markets, high yield, government and corporate bonds. Serge Pizem, global head of multi asset investments and lead portfolio manager of the fund, says he combines medium term strategic allocation with short-term tactical views. ©2013 funds europe
