Collas Crill advises award-winning fund promoter on launch

Collas Crill has advised the award-winning Darwin group in relation to the launch of a bereavement services fund.

The Darwin Bereavement Services Fund is a new alternative investment proposition for UK local authority pension schemes which will seek to invest in UK crematoria and related bereavement services entities. This strategy reflects Darwin’s overall goal of offering investment solutions that generate long-term absolute returns which both enhance capital and provide high levels of income.

Darwin was, among other accolades, named ‘Alternatives Manager of the Year’ at the 2015 LAPF Investment Awards and  ‘Alternative Investment Manager of the Year’ at the 2015 European Pension Awards.
