Annual Review 2016

2016 was a challenging year for the alternative UCITS universe, with many strategies struggling to generate positive returns. Asset flows were also more muted after several years of strong growth. The AH Global Index finished the year down 0.6%. Equity based strategies in particular had a tough time with managers buffeted by both macro events such as Brexit and Trump, and strong sector/factor rotations which caught many managers wrong footed. Despite this is it was also a good year for new launches, with the Schroder GAIA Two Sigma Diversified fund taking top spot after raising £496m after launching in August.
