Gartmore - Updates for IFAs
Gartmore are currently highlighting the success of their UK Absolute Return Fund
As the markets continue to change, so do the attitudes of investors. The challenge for advisers is to find a fund that can make the most of this volatility. During these times, many traditional investment vehicles have less flexibility to react to dropping values and have to wait for the next upturn. The Gartmore UK Absolute Return Fund takes a different approach. By balancing long-only equity investments with alternative strategies, it seeks to make the most out of market trends, positive or negative. Instead of chasing markets when they surge it aims to reduce volatility compared to equity markets, by seeking a steady return over the longer-term – regardless of market conditions. Though, of course, this may not be achieved and the Fund could experience some down periods. With over ten years experience of running absolute return portfolios, Gartmore has an established framework of integrated risk management systems that help us better identify risk and change. And, all of our absolute return fund managers have extensive experience in both long and short investment strategies. Meaning that our award-winning Fund Manager, Ben Wallace, with the support of the UK Equity Team, is ideally placed to react quickly to any changes in the market – whether they’re up or down.
