The Gam Global Diversified fund is to be repositioned as Gam Disruptive Growth, in “the first of a series of enhancements” to the firm’s UK fund range, said Rob Bailey, head of UK distribution.
Launched in 2011, the Disruptive Growth strategy is managed by Mark Hawtin (pictured) and has delivered top quartiles performance over three, five and 10 years.
From 31 January 2022, the Global Diversified fund’s strategy will reflect that of the Disruptive Growth fund, which ‘seeks to identify those companies both within and beyond the technology sector that are innovating with force and profoundly changing the way we live and work’.
As a result, the Gam Disruptive Growth fund will move to midday pricing, with effect from 23 February.
Bailey said: “We have seen strong demand for our Disruptive Growth strategy in the UK […], and I am excited to offer it as an OIEC.”
He added: “We are committed to growing our presence in the UK market and the evolution of our UK offer to meet our clients’ needs is an important step towards doing so.”
