The new fund is being soft-launched in the UK on December 15 and will be joint-managed by Robin Geffen, Douglas Turnbull and Adam Kelly.

The existing £82m Neptune China fund – which is lead managed by Neptune chief executive Robin Geffen – invests in a portfolio of about 40 stocks.

The new China Max Alpha fund will join the Neptune Global, European, Japan and US Max Alpha funds currently offered by the asset manager. The Max Alpha range invests in concentrated portfolios of between 20 and 30 stocks.

Richard Green, deputy managing director of Neptune, says: “We are launching this high conviction Chinese equity product as an extension to our existing Max Alpha fund range. These funds are distinguished by more concentrated stock holdings and multi-cap portfolios.”

Turnbull joined Neptune in 2007 as an investment analyst and is currently manager of its Greater China Income fund, a fund manager on its China fund and assistant fund manager on its global fund range.

Kelly also joined Neptune as an investment analyst, in 2008, and is assistant fund manager on the China and Greater China Income funds.
