BlackRock: UK Absolute Alpha Fund Webcast

Investment webcast for Financial Advisers and Paraplanners

4 Mar 2016

Please join Nigel Ridge, co-manager of the BlackRock UK Absolute Alpha Fund, for a live and interactive webcast on 23 March 2016, at 2pm.

Nigel will share his latest views on market movements and the opportunities they may present for the Fund, including

  • Expected volatility in the run up to the June referendum on Brexit
  • Current portfolio positioning in view of continued market volatility
  • A look at Q1 2016 performance while reflecting on strong absolute returns over the past three years

Date: Wednesday 23 March  2016 


Time: 2:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.




In 2015, the Fund returned 7.8%* for investors and March 2016 sees it celebrating its third anniversary under the combined stewardship of Nigel Ridge and Nick Osborne. Against a backdrop of further market volatility, this absolute return strategy offers an attractive way for investors to benefit from consistent alpha generation coupled with low beta and low correlation.
