Clarion Multiclass Fund - http://www.clarion.gg
 
Clarion is an offshore "umbrella" unit trust, with a compact range of funds designed to perform through most market conditions.  Its unique structure has enabled distributors to "white label" the fund without requiring an increase in costs - truly aligning client and adviser interests.

The clients' investment is managed by full-time professionals, a team of experts who research the industry on the clients' behalf and select what they feel to be the best funds for the future.  The fund managers monitor the investment on a regular basis to ensure that the chosen funds continue to perform well.  It is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to build and maintain a properly diversified investment portfolio across numerous asset classes and offer a one-stop shop investment solution.  This is vital since not many individuals have either the time or the expertise to create and manage their own investment portfolio and is an increasingly popular choice for smarter investors.

The clients will have peace of mind that their money is in the hands of experts and the client would not need to be concerned that they have made an inappropriate investment decision

What does a Multi-Manager approach do?

It invests in a mix of other funds rather than investing directly into company shares or bonds, as a traditional fund would. A traditional investment fund has a very specific set of aims and its fund manager will therefore be required to act within specific parameters, which will not evolve as quickly as events in capital markets. If the client only invests in a small number of assets, they are more vulnerable to the risk of volatile results at least, or losing their money at worst. In order to spread the risk well, the client may need to invest in not just a broad range of shares but also a broad range of funds.

This is where a multi-manager approach is useful.

A fund of funds manager knows about individual fund managers in the same way that other fund managers know about individual shares. They use their skill to choose what in their opinion are the best performing funds in each asset class and region and blend the funds together with the aim of producing better returns at a lower overall risk than a 'single manager' would take.  Experience has shown that private individuals often make good purchase decisions, but are not so good at deciding when to sell. In the long run it is better to leave both transactions to the professional within a multi-manager fund.

Clarion is a multi-manager fund range that includes all the options an investor might need from a complete portfolio, ranging from the least risky (targeting investment returns a small margin above a cash deposit) to equity-like returns (albeit at a lower risk level than a 'single manager' fund). Their objective is to leave the client with peace of mind, provided the client selects the Clarion fund that suits them best.

Clarion is managed by Argyll Investment Services Limited which is a Guernsey regulated asset management company that specialises in risk and portfolio management of traditional and alternative assets from a regulated and reputable offshore jurisdiction.  Argyll was established as an investment manager in October 2002. The Directors brought a wealth of experience in finance to establish a business that has created a new standard in service.

The main aim is to grow the investment whilst avoiding the 'boom & bust' of stock-markets. This is achieved by mixing different asset classes such as stocks, bonds, property and hedge funds, that perform in different and usually staggered cycles. A multi-manager approach is used to generate consistent returns with low volatility.
