Henderson Global Launches Liquid Alternatives Fund

Dec 11 2014 | 6:40am ET

Henderson Global Investors has unveiled a hedge fund-like mutual fund that will invest primarily in equities of non-U.S. companies and will be fully hedged back to the US dollar.

"The fund's value-add stems from our 'best ideas' approach to stock selection combined with an unconstrained strategy to invest in all types of equity-related securities," said Chuck Thompson, head of North American distribution at Henderson Global Investors. "This Fund continues Henderson's tradition of offering U.S. investors differentiated products as it is the first of its kind – the only existing, international long/short 'stock picking' fund within its Morningstar category."

The new liquid alternatives vehicle—The Henderson International Long/Short Equity Fund—includes four regional sub-portfolios with a fundamental, bottom-up approach to stock selection and will generally consist of a total of 60-70 positions. The sub-portfolios include Europe, UK, Japan and Asia and are managed by Stephen Peak, Neil Hermon, Vincent Musumeci and Andrew Gillan/Andrew Mattock, respectively.

Henderson Global Investors has assets under management of $127.7 billion. Its core areas of investment expertise are European equities, global equities, global fixed income, multi-asset and alternatives.
