Tilney Bestinvest today announces the launch of a new suite of five risk-graded multi-asset UCITS OEIC funds, the IFSL Tilney Bestinvest Global Multi-Asset Portfolios (G-MAP). The launch will have a fixed price offer period of 100 U.S. cents per share from 1 June to 30 June. The G-MAP funds will be co-managed by Gareth Lewis, Chief Investment Officer, and Marcel Porcheron, Director, Investment Office.

Aimed principally at international investors and advisers servicing expats, the G-MAP range replicates the risk and goal profiles of the firm’s existing, long established £1 billion Multi-Asset Portfolio fund range but without their relative bias towards UK assets. As the G-MAP range has just been launched, it does not have any performance data, however the existing MAP range have each delivered significant outperformance over their ARC benchmarks over multiple timescales (see Appendix). The new G-MAP funds will be denominated in US Dollars and the intention is to shortly introduce currency hedged share classes for investors based in Sterling, Euro and Swiss Francs.

The funds will pursue an active and global approach to asset allocation with allocations to equities, fixed income, property, target absolute return funds and cash. The five strategies are Defensive, Income, Income & Growth, Growth and Aggressive. Also available to UK-based investors wanting a truly global approach, the G-MAP funds will be widely available on intermediary platforms. The funds are UCITs compliant and will be domiciled in the United Kingdom. There will be two share classes one for institutional and the other retail investors, with an Annual Management Charge of 0.75% and 1.5% respectively.

Gareth Lewis, Chief Investment Officer and co-manager of the funds at Tilney Bestinvest, commented:

“Through developing this innovative portfolio range, we are delighted to be able to offer a multicurrency range for clients of overseas advisory firms. In recent years we have developed a number of relationships with firms supporting overseas investors, many of whom are expats who felt there was a gap in the market for a truly global multi-asset fund range avoiding any bias to UK capital markets. Through G-MAP we are delighted to be able to roll out our rigorous asset allocation and fund selection process to a wider audience.”
