Henderson Launches Absolute Return Fixed Income OEIC

Oct 9 2008 | 10:56am ET

Henderson Global Investors has launched the Absolute Return Fixed Income OEIC, a mirror version of its offshore absolute return fixed-income fund.

The multi-strategy is taking both directional (long and short) and relative value positions in the global fixed-income market. It will typically have between 70 and 100 holdings and generate alpha from interest rates, emerging market debt, currency and credit.

Daniel Beharall, portfolio manager, said investors who are looking for cash plus returns, but still have a fairly low risk approach, are increasingly seeking absolute return products.

“The decision to launch an OEIC version of the fund is due to the popularity of the offshore product,” he said. “The sophisticated UCITS III structure allows us to take positive or negative views on markets, regions, sectors, and individual securities.”

Henderson Global manages some £56.2billion (US$98 billion) in total assets.
