AB equities fund receives Lonsec rating

Investment research house Lonsec has assigned a rating to the AllianceBernstein (AB) Global Equities Fund.

The actively managed, long-only fund seeks to emphasise security selection as the expected driver of performance while closely managing systematic risk exposures, according to a statement by AB.

Launched in Australia July 2015, the fund is run by a "stable and experienced" team and is based on a strategy that has a track record of more than 10 years of delivering excessive returns to clients, the statement said.

AB chief executive for Australia Jen Driscoll said: "We are very pleased to receive this rating.


"We believe the fund, given its high-conviction approach to security selection and its careful management of risk, offers investors a differentiated approach to delivering consistent and competitive investment returns."

Lonsec added that while the fund has a limited performance track record, the underlying strategy has a "well-established" record.

The AllianceBernstein Global Equities Fund is designed for equity investors with high risk tolerances and for those who want the potential for long-term capital growth and some income by investing in global equity securities, the statement said.
