The Omba Moderate Risk Global Allocation Fund is a globally diverse fund which invests using Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) across both equity and fixed income markets. The Fund has flexibility to reduce or increase its equity weighting based on market conditions and applies a valuation-based approach to tactically overweight and underweight countries and sectors using ETFs. The Fund is a great building block for investors who want diverse, low-cost exposure to different asset classes, countries, sectors and currencies – which is becoming ever more important in an uncertain world.
why invest with us?
We pride ourselves as a firm on our business values which include: Fairness, Clients’ Needs First, Avoid (or disclose) Conflicts of Interest, Aligned Interests, Transparency, Passion for Investing, Embrace Technology and Integrity.
The Omba Fund can serve as a single investment solution for your savings needs. It is available in three currency classes (GBP, EUR, USD) and is invested into both Equities and Fixed Income ETFs. As a unitised fund it can serve as a single solution for investment into a diverse mix of ETFs, thus potentially helping you reduce trading and administration costs and tax charges associated with owning the positions or ETFs directly and separately yourself.
An important element of long-term portfolio performance is keeping the costs contained as the fees incurred through the investment process can massively impact the return. The Fund has no performance, no entry and no exit fees and the Total Expense Ratio (TER), including all underlying ETF costs, custody, dealing and administration is capped at 0.80% making it one of the most competitively priced actively managed UCITS funds available.
The fund is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland as a Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) fund. UCITS is an EU wide regulatory framework that creates a harmonised regime throughout Europe for the management and sale of mutual funds. It provides for stringent controls to ensure investors assets are held and managed securely.
Two very important aspects of our investment process include: 1) tactically shifting equity exposures into countries and sectors which show value; reducing or increasing bond duration or credit risk depending on the macro climate and interest rate outlook; 2) monitoring and rebalancing the portfolio to target weightings using a combination of quarterly and percentage of portfolio rebalancing. This can help ensure that we buy low and sell high as bonds and equities can perform differently at varying stages of the economic cycle.
At the core of our investment process is diversification! We are diversified by region, country, sector and currency. There are over 2500 underlying companies and over 2500 underlying bonds within the ETFs and no single company makes up more than 1% of the equity component of the portfolio. This means a Lehman Brothers, Enron or Worldcom (or Woodford!) scandal would not cause the fund meaningful loss. Idiosyncratic risk is extremely low.
The Fund has weekly dealing meaning subscriptions and redemptions can be made on a weekly basis. All the underlying ETFs can be sold immediately with cash available to the Fund 2 days later. All ETFs into which we invest are checked upfront for credibility and one of the key checks we perform is ensuring liquidity of the ETFs and the underlying holdings represented therein.
