Aegon Asset Management launches global opportunities fund


Aegon Asset Management is launching a fund for investors who want global macro exposure.

The Aegon Global Opportunities Fund aims to provide institutional and professional retail investors with competitive absolute returns from a diversified global portfolio.

The fund is a Dublin registered Ucits III fund, which is available to investors in Ireland, the Netherlands and the UK and going forwards across Europe.

The launch marks the integration of Aegon’s asset management businesses across the world, and this fund brings together the investment management experience of the teams in the Netherlands and the UK.

The fund will have a discretionary global macro strategy investing in derivative and non-derivative assets.

The fund will be managed by Olaf Van den Heuvel.

Van den Heuvel says: "It is our investment philosophy that excessive optimism and pessimism regularly cause over and under valuation of the financial markets. We believe active exploitation of these price anomalies with a process-orientated approach in a risk controlled manner will create increased portfolio returns. As such, we add value through our top down analysis, which we use to exploit mispricings between asset classes and intra asset class aggregates as well as long only positions."

The minimum investment is EUR100,000 (USD137,386).
