Fixed income specialist Ardea Investments Management has announced that its Real Outcome Fund in now available on the BT Panorama, BT Wrap and BT SuperWrap platforms.
The fund, which invests in government bonds, currently has in excess of $1.2 billion under management and aims to deliver stable returns that would protect purchasing power and growth wealth while profiting from inflation surprises.
It also offered managers opportunities to generate consistent returns irrespective of the direction of interest rates, the firm said.
According to Ardea’s principal and co-founder, Ben Alexander it was a “reliable defensive fixed income solution that prioritises liquidity and capital preservation, with minimal credit risk and no leverage.”
“We are particularly proud of our Real Outcome Fund and the way it has consistently outperformed against cash and inflation since inception, while remaining uncorrelated to broader equity and bond markets,” Alexander said.
“We believe it can play an important role in diversified portfolios, especially at a time when returns available from conventional fixed income performance drivers are low.”
Ardea Investment Management was established in 2008 by Alexander, Andrew Bartlett, Tamar Hamlyn and Stephen Clout and is partly owned by Fidante Partners.
