Commenting on the launch, Christian Derold, managing director and portfolio manager for Global Quality, said: "Our primary goal is to compound our investors’ assets over time. By investing in high quality companies with an inherent economic robustness, we aim to deliver returns to investors at a time when they need them most, during difficult and challenging market environments.

"Investing over the long term allows us to realize value through the steady growth which characterizes our quality companies."

Morgan Stanley Investment Management, together with its investment advisory affiliates, has over 550 investment professionals around the world and US$347 billion in assets under management or supervision as of 30 June 2013.
