GAM Systematic’s alternative risk premia strategy surpasses USD2bn milestone following strong inflows

RELATED TOPICS​

GAM’s alternative risk premia strategy has surpassed USD2 billion in assets under management (AuM) with inflows from multiple institutional investors in July bringing 2019 year to date inflows to more than USD 600 million and AuM to USD 2.4 billion in total.

GAM Systematic’s alternative risk premia strategy typically targets around 15 risk premia strategies across the style categories of value, momentum and carry. The team, which benefits from industry leading expertise built over almost 15 years, uses a disciplined research process to design, systematically implement and cost-effectively trade the various risk premia. In doing so, the team seeks to provide diversified sources of returns for investors.

Lars Jaeger, head of alternative risk premia, says: “The challenging trading conditions and subsequent dispersion of ARP returns witnessed in the industry in 2018 underlined the need for a specialised and experienced approach. We offer our clients a robust investment approach with experienced researchers and thoughtful strategy implementation and portfolio construction, which seek to allocate assets in a way that insulates the downside without sacrificing upside potential. This differentiated approach meant that we were well positioned to navigate the challenges posed in 2018, as well as to benefit from more benevolent markets in 2019.”

Tim Rainsford, group head of sales and distribution at GAM, says: “We have seen strong appetite from institutional investors for our alternative risk premia offering, particularly in Australia. GAM has been chosen by a number of Australian superannuation funds as a preferred manager for alternative risk premia due to our experience, differentiated approach and track record.”
