Palaedino Fund appoints five specialist investment managers
The Palaedino Fund, formerly named the Axiom Fund, has appointed five investment managers – Duet Group, Morgan Stanley, Olympia Capital, RBS and Unigestion – to implement a passive investment strategy based on Palaedino Asset Management indices.
Palaedino has developed five proprietary indices to accommodate the move to a passive approach that respond to the new economic order that is unfolding.
This new landscape will be dominated by two opposing forces: inflation and deflation, which will lead to a “bifurcation” at the macro and micro level.
The indices have been designed to respond to globalisation and its impact on financial markets, including the growing importance of emerging markets and their increasing contribution to global output as well as the structural changes taking place in developed countries.
Palaedino will maintain and rebalance the indices, which are based on dynamic rules to ensure they are responsive to changes in financial markets.
Alessandro Mauceri, chairman of the board of the Palaedino Fund, says: “Since the fund was launched in January 2010, we have used a blended investment approach combining active and passive management. We believe that the new approach will enable us to focus on the long term themes that impact each of the underlying asset classes, and avoid the short term noise generated by events associated with European financial crisis for example.”
Each third party investment manager has been appointed to implement the indices within the various sub-funds, and will seek to outperform the corresponding index by over or under weighting its constituents.
