Insight secures recommended rating from Zenith for Insight Diversified Inflation Plus Fund

From

Insight Investment, a leading global investment manager, has received a ‘Recommended’ rating for one of its funds, the Insight Diversified  Inflation Plus Fund, from leading research firm Zenith Investment Partners [1].

The A$169.5m [2] Fund  aims to deliver positive long-term returns at least 5% in excess of the Australian inflation rate over a rolling five-year period (net of fees). It is a multi-asset fund and invests in equity, fixed income, real assets, total return strategies and cash.  Its approach is based on three core principles of diversification, dynamic asset allocation and downside risk management and it seeks to deliver a smooth return path; aiming to capture most of the upside when markets are rising but avoiding most of the downside when they are falling.

Bruce Murphy, Director, Australia and New Zealand, Insight Investment, said: “We are very pleased to receive this second ‘Recommended’ rating from Zenith, which follows their recognition of the Insight Global Absolute Return Bond Fund earlier this year.  We believe the Insight Diversified Inflation Plus Fund presents a very attractive option for individual Australian investors with a medium to long-term investment horizon and may be of particular interest to self-managed super funds, adviser groups, wealth managers and institutional investors.”

The Fund is based on Insight’s flagship Broad Opportunities strategy which was launched more than 10 years ago and is managed by Insight’s Multi-Asset Strategy Group of 10 investment professionals who are together responsible for A$7.3bn in multi-asset assets under management. Zenith noted Insight’s research-intensive approach and strong performance track record in managing the strategy.

Insight currently manages A$28.2bn in Australia. The firm is headquartered in London and manages A$944.2bn globally [3].
