Investec Asset Management’s global equity income strategy launches in the UK


Investec Asset Management has launched the Investec Global Quality Equity Income Fund for UK based clients. 

A replica of the existing SICAV, which has outperformed the market and delivered top decile performance since inception, the Fund is the latest addition to the UK fund range managed by Investec’s Quality Investment Team.
Aiming to generate sustainable dividend growth and attractive total returns over the long term, the Investec Global Quality Equity Income Fund is designed to provide UK investors with a dividend yield in excess of the MSCI All Country World Index.  Since launching to global investors in March 2007, the existing fund has a top decile performance track-record and delivered 5.9 per cent annually to global investors for the nine years since inception, versus 2.7 percent the index.  Additionally, existing investors have benefited from 8.9 percent annual dividend growth since inception, versus the market’s 2.1 per cent.
The Investec Global Quality Equity Income strategy is managed by an experienced and global team, led by co-managers Blake Hutchins, Clyde Rossouw and Abrie Pretorius. A high conviction portfolio of 30-50 stocks, and cautiously positioned compared to the market, the co-managers take a differentiated approach by selecting world-leading Quality companies which are highly cash-generative, invest for future growth and have a proven track-record of paying growing dividends to investors, whilst avoiding more capital intensive sectors, often favoured by a number of competitor funds.
David Aird, Managing Director, UK Client Group, says: “Given the challenges facing investors in the current climate of low rates and stagnant economic growth, coupled with the financial realities that face an ageing population, investors are increasingly focused on sourcing attractive income streams from their assets whilst minimising risk to the underlying capital.  We are excited to bring to the UK market the Investec Global Quality Equity Income Fund.  A global fund with a proven nine year track record, it aims to deliver a smooth and steady investment journey over the long term, irrespective of market conditions.
“By investing in Quality companies with an ability to grow cash flows, whilst avoiding capital intensive sectors such as utilities and natural resources, which are often favoured by other equity income products, the Fund looks to provide lower volatility returns over the long term – something close to the hearts of our clients in today’s uncertain world.”
