Jupiter launches new fund

03 May 2012 / by James Caldwell

Jupiter have launched a new fund with a focus on capital growth and low volatility. The Jupiter Strategic Reserve Fund is to be managed by the highly regarded investment multi asset team of Mile Geldard and Lee Manzi.

Since 2000 investors have experienced two equity bear markets and unprecedented levels of volatility. During this time bond yields have fallen to record lows with UK government bond prices reaching levels that have not been seen in living memory. With this backdrop there has never been a more important time for dynamic and intelligent asset allocation management and the Jupiter Strategic Reserve fund aims to meet this need in a cost effective way.

The fund invests directly in liquid tradeable securities, including equities, corporate and convertible bonds, government bonds and currencies. The managers will use a flexible asset allocation policy with the aim of reducing the impact of any major downturn.

Retirement Provision Challenges

Commenting on the launch of the fund, Edward Bonham Carter, Jupiter Chief Executive of Jupiter asset Management said "The issue of adequate retirement provision is one of the most significant challenges we currently face as a nation. Challenging demographics in the UK means that most people will have to work harder for longer. It also means that the way people invest is likely to change with investors looking for strategies that can provide capital growth with lower volatility".
