Shell Contributory Pension Fund UK announces plans to invest hundreds of millions of pounds in alternative assets and to make its first investment in hedge funds.

The UK pension fund for Royal Dutch Shell Group is going ahead with plans to increase its exposure to alternative assets. The GBP 10.6 billion pension fund already has a 5% allocation to private equity and plans to invest a further 5% of AUM to hedge funds, infrastructure, and commodity funds. This move will be the first time the fund has invested in hedge funds. The pension fund is confident that the new strategic hedge fund asset allocation and additional diversification will provide benefits for the fund in volatile markets. The pension plan expects the move to be carried out over the next 3-6 months.
