MPG Offers ‘3-2-1’ Discounts to New Investments

• Extra allocations of up to 3% are available in Vita Nova Hedge Fund and High Protection Fund

Managing Partners Group (MPG)), the international asset management group, is offering extra allocations of up to 3% on new investments into its Vita Nova Hedge Fund and its award-winning High Protection Fund.

New investments will be given extra allocations of 3% this July; 2% in August; and 1% in September. Both funds are suitable for institutional and high-net worth investors and available in US dollar share classes, as well as Euro, Sterling and Swiss franc classes for the High Protection Fund.

Launched in 2014, Vita Nova Hedge Fund aims to achieve long-term capital growth byidentifying short- to medium-term investment opportunities with inherent pricing weaknessesand the potential to improve over time. The investment management team may relyon economic forecasts and analysis in respect of interest rate trends, macroeconomicdevelopments, global imbalances, business cycles and other broad systemic factors that may lead to arbitrage and alpha opportunities.

Launched in July 2009, the High Protection Fund aims to achieve long term capital growth by investing in a portfolio of Traded Life Policies (or TLPs), which are also known as Life Settlements in the USA. TLPs are US-issued life insurance policies that have been sold by the original owner at a discount to their future maturity value and are institutionally traded through a highly regulated secondary market. The Fund won the Corporate USA Today 2018 Annual Awards for Best Insurance-Linked Investment and Best Diversified Fund over five years.

Jeremy Leach, Chief Executive Officer, Managing Partners Group, commented: "These extra allocations will only enhance investors’ returns at a time when there are also great buying opportunities in the markets in which these funds invest."

"Investors are looking to alternative asset classes as monetary policy normalization and rising interest and inflation rates pose increasing challenges to bonds and equities and both funds are seeing strong investment inflows."

Recent research1 commissioned by MPG found that nearly nine out of 10 institutional investors (88%) have some degree of concern that inflation will erode the real value of bond yields over the next one to two years.

MPG is a multi-disciplined investment house that specialises in the creation, management and administration of regulated mutual funds and issuers of asset-backed securities for SMEs, financial institutions and sophisticated investors. It currently manages funds with a gross value of $500m.
