Recent research carried out by Schroders multi-manager team has shown that 57% of advisers are currently using multi-manager funds and a further 54% said they would either start or increase investment in multi-manager funds in the next 12 months.
Schroders multi-manager team ran the 10 seminars across the nation along with lifestyle and business coach Ian Whitehead to show advisers how they could develop their respective businesses. The events were held between February and May this year and of the 253 advisers at the seminars, research conducted was completed by 225 of them.
Investment development manager of the Schroders multi-manager team, Lee Freeman-Shor, said: "The findings are perfectly valid because we tracked all across the country and favouring multi-manager appeared a general trend. There were no particular regions either favouring or opposing multi-manager. I also meet advisers every week and they seem to be embracing multi-manager as a unit."
