J O Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM) has launched the JOHCM Global Income Builder fund, a multi-asset portfolio, available to investors through the sterling, euro, US dollar and Singapore dollar share classes.

Managed by JOHCM’s multi-asset value team, which includes portfolio managers Giorgio Caputo, Robert Hordon and Lale Topcuoglu, in Asia the fund is available in Hong Kong, Citywire Asia has learned.

According to JOHCM, the fund intends to make fixed distributions to shareholders of 5% of net asset value per annum, with distributions made on a monthly basis. It will typically hold 30% - 70% in equities, with the balance invested in fixed income, commodities and cash.

‘The fund is a logical extension to our long-only equity fund range. It offers a core solution to the income problem with which investors continue to wrestle,’ said CEO Ken Lambden.

Overall capacity for the Global Income Builder strategy has been set at $10 billion, at which point JOHCM will take steps to limit additional inflows in order to protect the interests of existing investors.
