The Marlborough Group has introduced four Irish-domiciled funds in a move to strengthen its international presence.
Offering exposure to a range of asset classes, the strategies have been set up to meet “investor demand” on the back of Marlborough International’s Guernsey-domiciled fund of funds.
Fitting to their names, the Marlborough Defensive, Marlborough Cautious, Marlborough Balanced and Marlborough Adventurous funds offer varying levels of equity exposure - from 20% for Marlborough Cautious to 100% for Marlborough Adventurous, according to the firm.
Each portfolio will be managed by the Marlborough Investment Management team based in the West Midlands of the UK.
Two appointments have been made to head up the distribution of the funds. Vasco Moreira will focus primarily on adviser relationships across southern Europe, while Andy Gibson will focus on Switzerland, Cyprus and northern Europe. Gibson comes with 25 years’ experience in the offshore world.
The funds will initially be available in sterling-denominated share classes. Euro and US dollar versions, hedged back to sterling, are to be launched in due course.
The Marlborough Group has around £11 billion (€12.4 billion) in assets under management.
