Legal & General launches equity fund with Boots Pension Scheme

Legal and General Investment Management (LGIM) has launched a multi-factor global equity fund with initial investment from Boots Pension Scheme. The fund is "factor-based" – a style of investing that seeks to identify and harness underlying drivers of performance – or factors – to meet specific objectives. It invests in a diversified portfolio of global equities that exhibit factor characteristics, such as value, low volatility, quality or size. Launched as a pooled vehicle for UK institutional clients, the fund aims to reduce risk relative to the global equity market by diversifying effectively across regions.
