Absolute return funds 'not faultless'

The volatile markets and negative returns should not put off investors in absolute returns funds, an investments expert has said.Dan Mannix, head of sales at RWC Partners, pointed out that any investment that was not totally risk-free had the potential to lose money some months.Exceptionally large falls on stock markets have been seen over recent weeks, with the FTSE 100 dropping by over 21 per cent in a single five-day period.Mr Mannix said: "There is no strategy that works faultlessly. The problem comes when investors expect absolute return funds not to make a monthly loss."He added: "An absolute return fund should provide significant downside protection, but that does not necessarily mean it will never lose money. You can't make returns over the risk-free rate without taking risk."RWC Partners is an asset managers, based in the UK.
