Allied Dunbar is linking up with groups including Newton, HSBC and Mercury to extend its range of fund links, writes Leo Bland.
The life office is also adding Henderson and Flemings to its list of fund link managers. The five new fund management groups will each be running a managed fund for Allied Dunbar, the Henderson managed fund an ethical fund link.
The investment houses will be added to Dunbar's existing range of fund links including Schroders, Perpetual and Fidelity, who are running managed funds for the group. Allied Dunbar is offering access to the fund links through its Adaptable Pension Plan and its single premium investment bond. Both of these products are marketed through the Allied Dunbar franchise network but are also available to IFAs through Zurich IFA.
Partner Insight: James Bateman, chief investment officer for Multi Asset at Fidelity International, argues investors need to ensure they are protected against negative market movements following February's pull-back.
