Skandia Investment Group (SIG) is looking to launch as many as seven of the group's Dublin-based funds to the UK market.
Subject to regulatory requirements, SIG intends to launch between four and seven funds from Skandia's Irish fund management group, Skandia Global Funds (SGF).
SGF operates 22 single strategy funds, outsourced to specialist managers. The funds cover a range of global, American, European and Asian asset classes.
“One of the fundamental reasons for creating Skandia Investment Group was to enable Skandia’s different markets to benefit from the investment expertise in other parts of the organisation,” SIG CEO Jamie MacLeod says.
“Planning to launch SGF funds into the UK market is a major strategic step as part of the development of SIG, and is the second such move coming hot on the heals of confirming our plans to create a European Best Ideas fund for the European market.
“Demand from financial advisers and their clients is paramount, so we will be testing the temperature in the UK before deciding which SGF funds we consider importing here.”
