Skandia International has unveiled the next wave of its offshore fund range expansion - with vehicles from HSBC, Credit Suisse, Allianz and Schroders soon to be available to investors.
The latest move is part of Skandia International’s effort to offer more non-UK domiciled investment options not denominated in sterling. Its new additions follow the 42 funds already added to the range since January this year.
Skandia International has been active in its offshore expansion in recent months, highlighted by the addition of eight funds from Franklin Templeton and JF.
The firm says the new funds are expected to come from sectors to have little or no correlation with the major asset classes.
“Our goal is to offer advisers and clients a more diverse option when it comes to their investments,” Skandia International’s investment proposition head Steve Ellis says.
“Advisers are increasingly looking for investments that can be tailored to meet the needs of their clients, regardless of where in the world they may be and we hope that our latest fund expansion programme will meet their diverse needs.”
Recent additions to the Skandia International platform:
- Franklin Templeton Emerging Markets Smaller Cos
- Franklin Templeton Middle East North Africa
- Franklin Templeton BRIC
- Franklin Templeton Global Bond
- JF Asean (HK)
- JF Australia (HK)
- JF Korea (HK)
- JF Taiwan (Lux)
Funds launched so far in 2008 include a range from: Black Rock, Investec, Jupiter, Kotak, Fidelity, Skandia Global Funds and Old Mutual.IFAonline
