    NavraInvest to launch US fund
    Tuesday, 01 Nov 2005 12:48PM

    Home-grown Australian equities boutique investment manager NavraInvest is set to launch into the US with a fund built around the Dow Jones.

    The fund, to be known as the Navra American Dow Jones Fund, will be based around NavraInvest’s current Australian equity focused funds that centre on blue chip shares but which are structured to generate high income proportions.

    The American fund will however be based on the Dow Jones price index.

    According to Rainmaker, NavraInvest currently manages $60 million on behalf of Australian investors.

    But unlike most boutiques aiming at the wholesale market, NavraInvest is primarily focusing upon retail investors.

    Any news out on the timeframe?

    How long does it usually take margin lenders to allow new funds like this as a security to borrow against?

    Cheers,

    Mostly it will depend on funds under management for the fund - depending on the fund, I'd guess at least $20m required ? I seem to remember that figure quoted for LE - my memory might be a bit off though.

    That's strange.....

    If(?) the information about a new Amercian Fund in the article was a recent press release sourced from NavraInvest, why would such a relatively old FUM figure($60M) have been used? NB. I did try accessing the Rainmaker Site but it seems to be down at present.

    Also, I wonder with the reference to:

    "But unlike most boutiques aiming at the wholesale market, NavraInvest is primarily focusing upon retail investors."

    Could this mean the American Fund will only have a Retail Component rather than Wholesale and Retail?

    Alan, I think you are reading way too much into those few words.

    Relax and wait for it to happen.

    Could well be Sim.

    It was more a general comment on the wording of the article really.

    Happy to see what happens....
