Nikko Asset Management launches two Ucits funds

Global chartsAsia’s Nikko Asset Management has launched the Global Equity Fund and the Global Multi-Asset Fund.

The Global Equity Fund will focus on the long-term drivers for global equity using a process-driven investment strategy. The fund is run by William Low, with a six-strong team aiming to build high conviction portfolios.

The fund aims to provide global investors access to a range of exposures across developed and emerging markets.

“We concentrate on well-researched, high-conviction ideas to deliver alpha in global equity strategies for our clients,” says Low. Low previously managed the high-alpha equity team at Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (now owned by Aberdeen Asset Management).

The Global Multi-Asset Fund will be run by Al Clark and comprises 18 members with an average of 20 years' experience. The team currently oversees $24 billion of assets (€22.1 billion).

Nikko Asset Management had $160 billion in assets under management as of September 2014.
