New GAM Star fund approved by Irish regulator

A new fund which aims to give clients access to both GAM’s investment management expertise and Barclays Capital’s quantitative strategies in a transparent UCITS format has received authorisation from the Irish regulator. The GAM Star Barclays Dynamic Multi-Index Allocation Fund, a UCITS IV-compliant vehicle, will be composed of quantitative indices that when combined will aim to deliver non-correlated returns to investors irrespective of market conditions. The fund is being aimed at investors looking for the benefits of actively managed multi-strategy, multi-asset investments. By making active, discretionary allocations across Barclays Capital’s indices, GAM’s investment team will be able to invest as and when market dynamics change. “The alternatives market has evolved as clients seek to access alternative strategies in a liquid format,” said Craig Wallis (pictured), Global Head of Institutional and Fund Distribution at GAM. “The GAM Star Barclays Dynamic Multi-Index Allocation Fund partners GAM’s experience in active and discretionary management with Barclays Capital’s extensive development of indices to meet this client demand.” Antti Suhonen, Managing Director, Equity and Funds Structured Markets (EFS) at Barclays Capital, said: “We are very pleased to work with an established manager such as GAM to create a new style of investment into quantitative indices through a diversified and actively managed portfolio.”
