SLI receives first funds from Alpha Fund Managers


Multi-manager Alpha Fund Managers has become the first Australian investor in the Standard Life Investments Absolute Return Global Bond Strategies Trust (ARGBS).

Matthew Newham (pictured), Investment Director Wholesale Business, Standard Life Investments, says: “We are delighted with Alpha Fund Managers’ allocation to ARGBS. This recognises the differentiation that an unconstrained fixed income fund with a focus on absolute returns can provide for investors seeking diversification and predictable returns.
The ARGBS fund aims to return cash* of 3% per annum over rolling three-year periods, with as little volatility as possible. It has the most compelling macro investment opportunities to diversify returns and sources of returns.”
Rod Bristow, Managing Director of Infocus Wealth Management, the parent company of Alpha Fund Managers, said: “We are attracted to ARGBS because of its strong diversification benefits and consistent returns over time. We believe our clients will benefit from the fund’s stable returns and low correlation with traditional bond and equity indices.”
