Zurich has added a further 20 funds to its investment and retail pension products, including two new links to multi-manager houses. The move, which is part of its ongoing 'review and refresh' process, sees all four Jupiter Merlin portfolios added to the offering as well as Fidelity's MultiManager Growth and MultiManager Income vehicles.
The group has also boosted the funds available in the property, bonds and themed arenas. The addition of M&G Property and Schroder Global Property Securities has brought the number of property propositions to half a dozen, while the list of bond funds was bolstered by the addition of portfolios from Aegon and Newton.
The remaining 10 funds are a plethora of themed investment vehicles and include funds from Aegon, Artemis, Cazenove, Investec, M&G, Schroder and UBS. Eight of the 10 funds have top-quartile performance over three years, according to figures from Standard and Poor's.
With funds typically added on a quarterly basis, Zurich sees this latest enhancement as a major upgrade to its platform, especially as on this occasion no existing linked funds were deemed to be underperforming to the extent they had to be removed.
