Investec has launched a multi-asset fund for Philip Saunders and John Stopford which aims to provide a one-stop-shop solution for investors wanting emerging markets exposure.
The Investec Emerging Market Multi-Asset fund will have exposure to equities, bonds, currencies, commodities and frontier markets, and is aimed at retail and DC investors.
At launch today, the fund has 50% exposure in fixed income, with 27% in local currency and 23% in hard currency denominated bonds. The duo also have 42% in equities, with 8% in cash.
David Aird, managing director of UK distribution at Investec, said: "It's a one-stop-shop for emerging market exposure.
"One of the managers' key skills is allocating across different asset classes, and we think it is a sensible solution for investors."
Saunders (pictured) already runs a number of funds at Investec including the top performing £22m Balanced Managed fund.
Stopford, who is co-head of fixed income, runs the group's £325m Investec Strategic Bond fund.
