Breakfast seminar: AIMS Target Return Fund
On 21 April, Aviva Investors CEO Euan Munro and Head of Investment Strategy Ian Pizer hosted a breakfast briefing for investors to give an update on the Aviva Investors Multi-Strategy (AIMS) Target Return Fund. They discussed performance to date, and what they’re expecting the markets to bring over the coming months.
Euan Munro opened the breakfast briefing by explaining that the extraordinarily volatile first quarter in global financial markets reflected the arrival of a key inflection point. The journey towards a zero interest rate world, when it’s been relatively easy to make capital gains, is over and investors now face the challenge of generating an income in an environment of very low yields. Investors are also questioning whether central banks remain willing to support asset prices.
Ian Pizer explained that the AIMS Target Return Fund is a volatility minimisation strategy, the goal of which is to make sure people invested in this fund can sleep easy at night. The fund seeks to achieve its goal by identifying key economic and financial themes and implementing strategies that can benefit from them.
He went on to describe the current themes and investment strategies in the portfolio as well as how the fund had performed since inception, outlining some of the key drivers of this performance.
