BlackRock UK Absolute Alpha

Nigel Ridge (MD, UK equities) joined Nick Osborne as co-portfolio manager of the UK Absolute Alpha fund in early 2013, and since then they have been implementing an investment process designed to leverage the deep pool of investment talent at BlackRock and deliver consistent absolute returns. Since the change of management team in March 2013 the fund has generated annualised returns of 7.2% with volatility of 5.0%. This is ahead of the FTSE All-Share and has been generated with around half of the volatility. With a correlation of just 0.15 to the equity index these are highly attractive risk adjusted returns that have rewarded investors who have remained in the fund. Based on the track record and strength of the investment process we are happy to upgrade the fund to a five star rating.
