Skandia Investment Group has launched the Skandia Global Dynamic Equity Fund, which it says offers a cost-effective, one-stop solution for investors seeking diversified global equity exposure.

The multi manager fund will provide access to a diversified portfolio of highly rated investment managers, each running a specialist regional or country-specific mandate to provide exposure to a wide range of global equity opportunities.

SIG believes this approach provides the right level of diversification and enables it to pick the very best specialists in each area. The managers have been carefully selected and blended by SIG’s 45 strong investment team.

While manager selection is expected to provide the main source of alpha, the fund will offer the potential to generate additional value via a flexible asset allocation approach.

The fund will be benchmarked against the MSCI AC World GDP Index, an index that places greater emphasis on economies that are enjoying the highest growth rates. SIG believes that over the long term, strong economic growth tends to result in strong profit growth for a country’s corporate sector, which in turn, provides the lifeblood of its stock market returns.

The fund is being launched by SIG’s UK based fund management company, Skandia Investment Management, initially for UK advisers and investors.

It will be the first fund launched by Skandia which enables value to be added from asset allocation strategies alongside its extensive manager selection capability.

James Millard, Skandia Investment Group’s chief investment officer (pictured), says: ‘Investors are increasingly looking for global – rather than regional – equity solutions. This trend is borne out by data from the IMA, which shows the global growth sector enjoying the third-largest net retail sales in 2008 (up from eighth position three years ago).

‘Our unique position and size in the market gives us unrivalled access to world-class managers, including those not otherwise available to individual investors. Therefore we believe that the Skandia Global Dynamic Equity Fund could be just what clients are looking for.’
