A diverse range of strategies designed to meet long-term investment needs.
Alternative assets can offer investors an attractive return, predictable cash flows, and diversification benefits in a world where public markets increasingly offer modest yields for deteriorating credit quality.

Offering investors same day, stable value, LVNAV & VNAV, short-term money market funds, which include euro and sterling denominated funds.
For further information on the risks and risk profiles of individuals strategies, please refer to the relevant documentation.
Alternative Income assets are significantly less liquid than assets traded on public markets. Where funds are invested in infrastructure/real estate, investors may not be able to switch or cash in an investment when they want because infrastructure may not always be readily saleable. If this is the case, we may defer a request to redeem the investment.
Our specialist teams are on hand to help you with your enquiries.
