Oasis launches new low equity balanced fund
Dubai, May 5, 2011
Oasis, a global fund manager and leader in the Shari’ah investment arena, has launched its Oasis Crescent Global Low Equity Balanced Fund.
In an environment of rising inflation and increased volatility, this launch comes at an opportune time for investors to mitigate these risks and to derive inflation-beating returns at lower volatility over the medium to long term. It does so by providing exposure to a combination of high-quality global equity, property and income, a statement said.
“This marks a significant milestone in our objective to offer investors a global investment range that addresses their investment needs over all life stages,” said Adam Ebrahim, Oasis CEO and chief investment officer.
“The Oasis Crescent Global Low Equity Balanced Fund is the first of a series of global balanced funds to be rolled out in the coming months.”
This fund has been designed in line with Oasis’s philosophy of matching risk strategies and potential investment returns to an individual’s age, investment time horizon and risk profile.
As such, the Oasis Crescent Global Low Equity Balanced Fund is ideally suited to investors who are looking for a low-risk investment that will still have the ability to beat inflation. Managed according to a consistent low volatility investment management strategy, the fund is geared towards seeking maximum levels of capital protection while still offering long-term growth, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
