Aegon launches global opportunities fund
Aegon Asset Management is launching a global opportunities fund targeting investors wanting global macro exposure.
The AEGON Global Opportunities Fund aims to provide institutional and professional retail investors with competitive absolute returns from a diversified global portfolio.
It is a Dublin registered Ucits III fund which is available to investors in Ireland, the Netherlands, the UK and going forward across Europe.
The launch marks the integration of Aegon's asset management businesses across the world, and this fund brings together the investment management expertise of the teams in the Netherlands and the UK.
The fund will have a discretionary global macro strategy investing in derivative and non derivative assets.
The fund will be managed by Olaf Van den Heuvel. He will be supported by a team of five in the Netherlands and the wider Aegon Asset Management multi asset group in the UK and the Netherlands which consists of ten investment professionals.
Van den Heuvel says: “It is our investment philosophy that excessive optimism and pessimism regularly cause over and under valuation of the financial markets. We believe active exploitation of these price anomalies with a process orientated approach in a risk controlled manner will create increased portfolio returns. As such, we add value through our top down analysis, which we use to exploit mis-pricings between asset classes and intra asset class aggregates as well as long only positions.”
