Investment management specialist Blackfinch Group has launched two new funds - IFSL Blackfinch NextGen Infrastructure and IFSL Blackfinch NextGen Property Securities.
These funds focus on investing in companies aligned with significant global growth trends such as digitalisation, urbanisation and ageing demographics.
Managed by George Nikolaou and Dr Dan Appleby, the funds will target listed companies benefiting from these long-term trends.
The NextGen Infrastructure fund will invest in sustainable infrastructure companies in areas like digitalisation, energy transition and sustainable urbanisation. With an ongoing charges figure (OCF) of 0.91%, it will primarily focus on developed markets, constituting at least 75% of the portfolio.
On the other hand, the NextGen Property Securities fund will invest in REITs and listed property companies with strong ESG credentials, concentrating on digitalisation, sustainable urbanisation, ageing demographics and emerging middle classes. This fund has an OCF of 0.90% and will also mainly invest in developed markets.
Both funds complement Blackfinch’s existing multi-asset investment capabilities and are part of the company's strategy to expand its portfolio services.
The Marlborough Group’s Investment Fund Services Limited (IFSL) has been appointed as the Authorised Corporate Director (ACD) for these funds, available on various major platforms.
Blackfinch Investments Ltd is the named sponsor and appointed investment manager for both funds.
