DB pension schemes seeking access to diversification and growth through alternatives can now access a range of real return property and hedge fund strategies using Mobius Life’s new Specialist Fund range.
The Specialist Fund range is designed to meet consultants’ and trustees’ demands for more sophisticated strategies to meet schemes’ long-term funding and cashflow requirements in today’s low return environment.
The AEW UK Real Return Fund and Gatemore Multi-Asset Fund will now be available on the Mobius platform. Mobius is also planning to add funds focusing on private assets, infrastructure and hedge fund strategies to the Specialist Funds range.
DB schemes will benefit from being able to hold all the schemes’ traditional and alternative assets on a single platform with streamlined dealing and reporting. As the funds are pooled on the Mobius Life platform, smaller schemes will be able to access sophisticated funds which would be restricted to them off-platform due to high minimum investment thresholds.
Joshun Sandhu, Senior Investment Analyst, Mobius Life said: “Consultants are increasingly seeking more sophisticated strategies to enable their pension schemes clients to meet their objectives. Every scheme is different, some are seeking greater diversification while others may require the certainty of contractual cashflow or other requirements. We are developing our Specialist Fund range to meet these needs in a highly governed environment.”
Adrian Swales, Chief Executive Officer, Mobius Life said: “Mobius Life offers pension schemes and their consultants a flexible and responsive platform to meet their investment administration needs. More and more schemes are recognising that our independence and 100% focus on delivering platform services helps them to meet their long-term investment objectives. So much so that we are now approaching £20 billion in assets on the platform”
