OneVue has launched seven new responsible entity (RE) funds in response to the increasing popularity and take-up of alternative investment strategies by fund managers.
OneVue RE Services has launched and transitioned seven new funds in 2015, and is set to introduce additional funds in late-2015 and early-2016, OneVue head of investment management Alex Wise said.
“More funds are coming to market outside the traditional sphere and we are seeing more demand for international strategies and also alternative investments,” he said.
“We believe this demand for alternative products is firmly linked to market volatility and investors seeking lower risk, alpha style opportunities, whilst investing outside of Australia has been driven by attractive opportunities and valuations in certain markets.”
The new funds added to the platform provider's RE services are Clime International, Sanlam Reitway Global Fund, ChinaAMC China Opportunities, 188 Universal Bond Fund, NWQ Fiduciary Fund, YBR Protected Equities Fund and Tyche Growth Fund.
“OneVue will be launching a number of new funds over the next quarter with a continued focus on international assets and alternative strategies,” Mr Wise said.
Mr Wise also noted that OneVue has seen further activity in the significant investor visa sector.
