Schroders will launch a UCITS-compliant global macro fixed-income fund next month.
The firm announced that the GAIA Global Macro Fund, which will be managed by its multi-sector team, would join its GAIA platform. The new vehicle will be the fourth on that platform, replacing Schroders' emerging markets joint-venture with Sloane Robinson, which it liquidated last month.

Jolly's team will seek to earn 8% over the London Interbank Offered Rate on opportunities offered by those cycles. The fund will invest in currencies, sovereign bonds and other credit strategies.
