icf management limited is an independent, owner managed, specialist investment manager providing advice to families and trusts. As experienced family office investors we offer asset allocation, portfolio construction and manager selection services that are impartial and free from bias.
icf is the manager for the VT icf Absolute Return Portfolio (ARP) fund which may be considered appropriate for investors with a long term investment horizon, at least 3 to 5 years, who are looking for a consistent return with lower volatility than equity markets and a low correlation with other investments generally.
The fund was launched in 2010 in response to a small number of investors, friends and family who wanted a one stop approach to selecting funds in the absolute return arena. The fund can be paired with multi-strategy funds in the alternatives sector as a diversifier from both a volatility and manager risk perspective.
Family offices invest monies that have often been established over several generations – they not only seek to grow the capital but place equal importance on wealth preservation. The VT icf ARP fund invests in a similar fashion, with capital growth as an objective but also wealth preservation as part of the mindset. The Fund is managed by Mark Lynam. Mark draws further analysis from Andrew Hunt, a highly experienced leading economist who also produces a regular economic commentary for icf that is distributed to clients.
"Best Family Office Investor, UK" - icf is named a winner in the inaugural Wealth & Finance magazine Alternative Investment Awards.
