Spotlight on Gars and Real Return after summer wobble

A spokesperson from SLI said: “Gars generates its investment performance primarily from careful selection of market opportunities taken with a three-year view, rather than from individual security positions that are often based on a shorter-term outlook.

“The fund has performed well for its investors. Since launch and irrespective of market conditions, the fund has delivered its performance target of cash plus 5 per cent gross of fees over a rolling three-year period with relatively low levels of volatility and we are confident it will continue to do so.”

A spokesperson from Newton said: “Over the longer term – both five and 10 years – the fund continues to outperform its performance reference (Libor plus 4 per cent), while seeking to provide a consistent level of upside participation in financial market strength, with limited downside and low levels of volatility.”
