Multi-manager provider Insinger de Beaufort is launching three funds of hedge funds, with plans for a further two such vehicles later in the year.
The European long/short, new managers and aggressive managers products will be available via Insinger's offshore multi-manager investment programme, a managed account.
This launched in December and is available via a number of offshore wrappers, including Canada Life International's Premier Account bond and Royal Skandia and Friends Provident's offshore bond. It is also available to existing clients of Scottish Widows International.
The account has a 25% hedge fund component, with the balance between equities and bonds based on the client's risk profile. Insinger has two existing multi-strategy hedge funds, one domiciled in the Netherlands and the other in the British Virgin Islands.
The group is also in the process of setting up a Luxembourg-based Sicav of funds of long-only managers. At present, the group's onshore Oeic funds of funds buy into other groups' products. Over time, Insinger intends the Oeic to buy into the funds of managers in the Sicav.
An added tier of asset management can of course deliver additional benefits for certain investors, writes Graham Bentley - just be sure you can justify it to the regulator and, especially, the client
The government is "in daily contact" with industry figures over the pensions dashboard as it prepares for the roll-out and its feasibility report, Guy Opperman has said.
