Nikko AM launches two new UCITS funds


Nikko Asset Management has launched two new UCITS funds – a global equity fund headed by William Low, and a multi-asset fund run by Al Clark (pictured).

The Nikko Asset Management Global Equity Fund will focus on the long-term drivers for Global Equity with a rigorous process-driven investment strategy, that harnesses the skills of William Low and his six-strong team to build high conviction portfolios. The institutional quality strategy will allow sophisticated global investors access to a broad range of exposures across developed and emerging markets
Over the past two years, Nikko Asset Management has been expanding its existing investment capabilities. The most recent addition was the highly experienced UK-based global active equity team led by William Low in August 2014. Low’s team of six investment professionals manages benchmark-agnostic, long-only global equity portfolios and has an average of 19 years of experience in the industry. The team, which is based in Edinburgh, Scotland, works closely with Nikko Asset Management’s full-service European headquarters in London.
“Our process delivers a high active share, differentiated global equity solution that aims to provide superior returns to clients as a result of investing in a narrower group of stronger performing companies than is represented in overall benchmarks,” says Low. “We concentrate on well-researched, high-conviction ideas to deliver alpha in global equity strategies for our clients.”
Will previously managed the high-alpha equity team at Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (now owned by Aberdeen Asset Management). From its inception, the team provided an excellent alpha track record in global equities in addition to continuing to manage EAFE mandates. Prior to this, he was at BlackRock, where he formed and led an EAFE team that was known for its strong alpha track record.

The Nikko Asset Management Global Multi-Asset Fund run by Al Clark comprises 18 members with an average of 20 years' experience. The team currently oversees $24 billion of assets and employs a disciplined investment process balancing quantitative and fundamental inputs.
