Van Kampen Fund Offers Actively Managed Global Diversification

February 4, 2009 ( - Van Kampen Funds Inc., a subsidiary of Van Kampen Investments Inc., has announced the launch of the Van Kampen Global Tactical Asset Allocation (GTAA) Fund.

According to the announcement, the Van Kampen GTAA Fund has been designed to invest in traditional and non-traditional asset classes across the world and to respond to rapidly changing market conditions. The fund seeks to achieve significant diversification across a range of countries and industries by typically investing in 1,500 to 2,000 equity securities and fixed-income securities of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers, as well as cash, commodities and currencies.

The management of the Fund is led by Van Kampen’s Global Tactical Asset Allocation Team. Van Kampen said the GTAA Fund “uses a top-down, global macro investment approach that provides the freedom and flexibility to best exploit market inefficiencies as soon as they are identified.”
