Standard Life Investments has launched Global Focused Strategies (GFS), an absolute return portfolio that aims to generate high, positive returns irrespective of market conditions. 

Available for institutional investors, GFS targets a return of cash +7.5 per cent per annum over rolling three-year periods. 
 
It is expected that this return will be delivered with between six per cent to 12 per cent volatility.

 
GFS is managed by Standard Life Investments’ multi-asset investing team, using the investment platform and risk infrastructure that underpins the Global Absolute Return Strategies and Absolute Return Global Bond Strategies portfolios. 
 
Guy Stern, head of multi-asset and macro investing, Standard Life Investments, says: “Standard Life Investments continues to develop innovative investment strategies to meet global client needs.  GFS is an advanced fusion of our macro and micro capabilities, underpinned by our team-based approach and multi-asset risk and portfolio management expertise.  It benefits directly from the experience and insights of our equity, fixed income, real estate and money market specialists. This allows GFS to fully exploit our investment views to enhance portfolio efficiency.


 
“Operating with broad investment freedom within rigorous risk controls, GFS invests actively within and between all major asset classes and across the corporate capital structure.  It can also make extensive use of derivatives to implement positions and mitigate risk.  This allows GFS to access an exceptionally diverse array of strategies, so it can generate positive returns irrespective of the economic environment.”
