GAM Investments has renamed its model portfolio service "to better reflect the portfolios' global positioning", it said on Monday (12 August).
The five funds, managed by Charles Hepworth and James McDaid, have all had the word "Global" added to them, "to provide clarity and illustrate the team's approach to asset allocation", with the overall range renamed GAM Managed Fund Solutions (GMFS).
James Weston, head of international managed solutions at GAM, said: "GMFS combines the knowledge of some of the world's top managers with Charles and James's extensive investment experience.
"At GAM, we have recognised expertise working with advisers, intermediaries and strategic partners in multiple jurisdictions, and GAM's five globally allocated managed solutions continue to deliver for our partners."
The funds were launched in Q4 2012, with the best performing - GAM Star Dynamic Growth - having returned 72.02% in that time, according to data from FE. The worst performing - GAM Star Defensive - has returned 29.68% in that time.
Hepworth, GAM's investment director, said the fund range has adopted a global approach to asset allocation since inception, "allowing us to capture growth opportunities for our intermediary partners".
"We believe that this approach, rather than a home bias, can ultimately reward investors with better risk-adjusted returns over the longer term," Hepworth added.
"We currently remain cautious on UK risk assets. We still see the Brexit end-state as a depressingly clouded affair and this translates to elevated levels of risk, especially for UK equities, but any concrete developments, should they materialise, will quickly enable more tactical positioning to be taken."
GAM said the funds are actively managed, risk-rated offerings that invest in best-in-class funds via both active and passive vehicles across fixed income, equities, absolute return and alternative strategies.
The firm added that its GAM Star Global Balanced portfolio currently holds 49% of its assets in global equities and 10% in UK equities, an overweight and underweight position, respectively, relative to Dynamic Planner Risk Profile 5 in which the portfolio sits.
