Advisers now have access to the Allianz RCM Global EcoTrends fund through seven platforms.
A mirror fund of Allianz’s existing Luxembourg SICAV, the newly launched EcoTrends OEIC is available on Skandia, James Hay, FundsNetwork, Cofunds, Transact, Legal & General International and Canada Life International.
Investing in eco energy, pollution control and clean water, the Bozena Jankowska managed SICAV returned 25.9% in the year to 30 January.
Allianz has also launched a new microsite, www.globalecotrends.co.uk, giving UK advisers the latest fund information and sales support literature.
“We have been encouraged by the interest expressed by intermediaries throughout the launch phase of Global EcoTrends,” Allianz Global Investors Fund Distribution head Nick Smith says.
“For them to have access to the fund through this range of platforms is very exciting and we look forward to working with them as we build on the success of the award winning EcoTrends franchise here in the UK.”
The fund has a 4% initial charge outside an ISA, 3% inside an ISA, 1.75% annual management fee and £500 minimum investment or £1,000 inside an ISA. Initial commission is 3% and trail is 0.5%.
