Ravenscroft has added a Higher Income Fund to its range of funds, which now offer six different options for investors.
The Higher Income portfolio consists of bond funds, equity funds, and investment trusts, with a focus on maximising income.
The fund, which has now launched, will be run by Ravenscroft’s multi-manager team and led by Bob Tannahill and Shaun McDade. It is available as an offshore fund in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
“We have been exploring the possibility of launching a higher income strategy for a number of years and are excited that the events of the last 12 months have provided the ideal opportunity to finally bring this product to market,” said Mr Tannahill (pictured), who currently manages Ravenscroft’s income fund.
“With interest rates near zero for over a decade we just didn’t feel investors were being paid enough to take on the additional volatility that comes with higher income assets. That’s all changed over the last year.
“The aggressive rate hikes we’ve been seeing have changed the investment environment and we’re now seeing some of the best opportunities in income assets that we’ve seen in many years.”
Run by Ravenscroft’s investment team, who as a team have almost 15 years’ experience running income portfolios, Higher Income will be based on the same core thematic investment process that drives the existing five strategies.
