Schroders will add a second fund to its UCITS III platform, tapping hedge fund Sloane Robinson to manage it.
The new Schroder GAIA Sloane Robinson Emerging Markets fund will debut at the end of next month. It will be manned by the London-based firm’s emerging markets team, headed by chief investment officer Richard Chenevix-Trench.
“It is great news to have been selected by Schroders and NFC to join the Schroder GAIA platform for our capabilities in investing in emerging markets,” Chenevix-Trench said. “These platforms are increasingly popular amongst investors looking to combine the return profile of hedge fund strategies with the liquidity, transparency and regulatory stability of UCITS.”
The Schroder’s platform launched its first fund in November, managed by Egerton Capital.
