30 April 2024: Coutts is proud to launch the new Coutts Diversifying Alternatives Multi-Manager Fund in partnership with J.P. Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM).

This market-leading liquid alternatives solution will be available exclusively to Coutts and NatWest clients from 30 April, and will provide an innovative solution for investors.

The fund has been designed to generate returns with low sensitivity to traditional markets, and utilises managed account technology, offering critical diversification benefits, a customised experience and acting as a complement within a multi-asset portfolio.

Coutts clients will benefit from additional diversification within a traditional equity/bond portfolio, offering a differentiated return profile with low correlation to other financial markets. Other benefits include providing clients with wealth protection and a more stable return stream over cash markets.

The partnership will combine the strength and reach of both investment houses, leveraging JPMAM’s  track-record in third-party alternatives investing, and providing clients access to a highly experienced portfolio management team, representing some of the most experienced alternative asset managers in the hedge fund industry.

This latest development supports Coutts’ strategy of being brilliant for clients, making sure that there is a consistent focus on innovation to provide best-in-class products.


Fahad Kamal, Chief Investment Officer, Coutts said:

“We are always looking for ways to enhance the service we offer to clients, and to build on our track-record of delivering first class products. This exciting partnership allows us to achieve that ambition."

“The scale and global reach of J.P. Morgan Asset Management’s platforms mean that clients will have access to a global asset management team and to market-leading tools – further demonstrating Coutts’ commitment to supporting our clients to reach their investment goals.”


Claude Kurzo, UK Country Head at J.P. Morgan Asset Management said:

“We’re delighted to be launching a truly innovative liquid alternatives solution in partnership with Coutts – a solution which has been tailored to meet the specific needs of Coutts’ multi-asset portfolios and seeks to offer diversification and better client outcomes."

“The new strategy forms part of a broader strategic partnership between Coutts and JPMAM, founded on building timely and relevant investment solutions and the sharing of investment insights, particularly through the JPMAM Market Insights program. We’re looking forward to the journey ahead.”
