Jupiter to launch UK-based abs return fund for Chatfeild-Roberts

Jupiter to launch UK-based abs return fund for Chatfeild-Roberts

Jupiter Asset Management will be launching a UK version of John Chatfeild-Roberts' absolute return fund. 

The current Merlin Real Return, managed by Citywire A-rated team Chatfeild-Roberts (pictured), David Lewis, Amanda Sillars and Algy Smith-Maxwell, is domiciled in Luxembourg. 

The UK-based version will continue to follow the same strategy and will be managed by the same team. 

Jupiter Merlin Real Return has returned investors 31% over the three years to the end of March, compared to the peer group average of 23.7%.

 

The team also manages the £7.5 billion Jupiter Merlin fund of funds range, that saw £223.8 million in net outflows earlier this year.

The launch is slated for the second half of the year.

In October last year, the Merlin multi-manager team revealed details on how it gradually sold its interest in Neil Woodford's income fund

Chatfeild-Roberts had first backed Woodford around 20 years ago when he was at Invesco Perpetual. However it emerged that it had pulled a £300 million stake from the flagship Woodford fund.
