Managing Director Multi-Asset Solutions James Hughes said: “We’re thrilled to be launching the Gottex Multi-Asset Growth Fund at this point in time.  Our philosophy centres on a ‘safety first’ approach seeking alternative sources of return by identifying opportunities across a diverse range of asset classes and geographies. This enables us to both protect and grow assets over time and we believe will appeal to a wide range of investors as a ‘core’ allocation to meet their long-term investment goals. It’s particularly exciting to be launching this multi-asset fund as a part of Gottex Asset Management given their long and successful history of managing alternative investments globally.”

Gottex Chief Executive Officer Joachim Gottschalk said: “I am delighted to announce the expansion of our product range in Europe with this new multi-asset UCITS fund. The DNA of Gottex’s business, historically focusing on alternative investment, allows a natural expansion into multi-asset solutions and provides our clients access to complementary return streams.  Bringing together our leading-edge alternatives and risk management platform to support the creation of a broader client offering in the multi-asset space allows Gottex to access a much wider range of investors for the first time. This is the first step in creating a suite of multi-asset products to support the ever increasing demand for ‘core’ multi-asset solutions.”
