FCP strengthens asset management team


Robert Jolliffe (pictured) has joined Future Capital Partners in a senior investment advisory capacity to enhance the group’s existing structured debt and asset management capabilities. Jolliffe joins from The Princedale Partnership, an investment consultancy he founded in 2008, prior to which he spent fourteen years at ABN AMRO Bank NV in a variety of Structured Debt and Equity Capital Markets related roles.

Jolliffe will focus initially on the on-going development and delivery to market of the Sanctuary Fund, an innovative income-driven investment fund that is scheduled for launch later this year, subject to regulatory approval by the Guernsey Financial Services Authority. This fund will aim to generate an attractive annual return, targeted at 7% net of charges, by investing in socially responsible AAA or AA (Standard & Poor’s or other equivalent) government backed projects. It will focus specifically on sectors incentivised by governments to encourage rapid growth.
FCP is developing the Sanctuary Fund to provide investors with a new alternative to more traditional income investments such as cash deposits, high yield equities, corporate bonds, structured income funds and real estate assets. The aim of the fund is to deliver a steady and consistent income stream to its investors from assets whose performance should have little or no correlation to the returns produced by the majority of other income generating products.
Jolliffe’s extensive experience fits extremely well with Sanctuary’s particular area of focus and with the various classes of assets in which it intends to invest. These are set to include social infrastructure and renewable energy projects that generate steady government backed revenue streams from feed in tariffs and private / public partnership financing arrangements and various other types of assets whose cash flows are underwritten by tax credit based fiscal incentives. This focus on assets with government-backed revenue streams is intended to provide investors with an extremely high level of capital protection relative to the fund’s projected rate of return.  
Sanctuary will target retail and wealth management intermediaries, personal pension and retirement planners, accountancy and tax advisers, discretionary portfolio managers and HNWIs. Investment can be made directly or through SIPPs, SASSs or offshore bonds.
Tim Levy, CEO Future Capital Partners, says: ‘Robert’s previous structured debt and asset finance experience will complement our existing team of investment and project finance professionals. There is a very natural fit between where FCP is going as an asset management organisation and the skills and expertise that Robert brings to the group.
“We have been increasingly aware of the rising demand among many of our clients for financial products that generate steady, stable and secure revenues even against the background of today’s volatile and unpredictable financial markets. We are now increasingly focused on the development of investment products that meet this pressing need.”   
Jolliffe says: “I am delighted to be joining Future Capital Partners at this exciting stage in the development of its asset management activities. I am committed to creating this new product with FCP which aims to meet the real and rapidly growing demand among investors for a steady stream of income with a minimal risk to capital.”
