Liontrust Asset Management is planning to launch a short-only hedge fund, based on the First Growth unit trust, to be run by fund manager Jeremy Lang.
As well as this fund, which is likely to be up and running in the third quarter of this year, the group also intends to launch offshore Guernsey-based Oeic versions of the Knowledge Economy Trust, to be run by Anthony Cross, and the Liontrust First Large Cap fund, to be managed by William Pattisson, in the second or third quarter.
The group's offshore Oeic already contains Lang's fund and the Liontrust Top 100 index tracker. Chase Fleming Asset Management recently tested a hedge fund, but has since decided not to progress any further with the idea.
‘Most significant’ upgrade since launch
Changes happening over coming months
Had accepted British Steel business
Aimed at HNW clients and family groups
Set for 1 April 2019
