Unigestion adds Global Macro fund to Its Liquid Alternatives Cross Asset product range
Unigestion, the independent, specialist asset manager, has launched a Global Macro Fund to deliver absolute and risk-adjusted returns to investors seeking liquid, transparent and cost-effective access to global macro opportunities.
The Uni-Global – Global Macro Fund, a sub-fund of the Luxembourg domiciled Uni-Global SICAV, manages long and short exposure to asset classes by combining three independent systematic and discretionary investment approaches – systematic macro allocation, discretionary macro allocation and systematic macro trading – that do not have a long-term, structural bias to any financial asset. Strict risk controls and portfolio constraints are applied to the portfolio.
In today’s environment of low yields and stretched valuations there is significant demand from investors for a product that can help them provide diversification in a liquid and transparent way. The Uni-Global – Global Macro Fund, with its unique blend of systematic and discretionary investment approaches, seeks to deliver absolute and consistent returns over time.
The Strategy sits among a suite of cross-asset strategies aimed at various types of investors. Unigestion has a strong background in multi asset investing, starting in 1993 and Unigestion’s Cross Asset Solutions team manages over US$1.7bn in cross-asset strategies anchored around the firm’s macro risk-based philosophy. The team is headed by Jerome Teiletche and combines two types of capabilities: global macro expertise with the Global Macro & Dynamic Asset Allocation team headed by Guilhem Savry and quantitative expertise with the Head of Systematic Strategies team headed Olivier Blin.
Earlier this year, the team launched the Unigestion Classic Strategic Fund, a US dollar denominated multi asset fund domiciled in the Cayman Islands. The Fund aims to harvest long-term risk premia embedded across bonds, equities, commodities, and currencies based on their sensitivity to macro environments.
Unigestion is an independent, specialist asset manager providing innovative, tailored solutions for investors worldwide.
