Allianz Global Investors is to launch a range of risk-rated multi-asset funds in response to growing demand for "outcome-orientated" solutions.
The funds, which are set to be launched later this year, will be actively-managed and available in an RDR-ready share class.
Allianz said further details about the range will be made available next month.
It said it was seeing growing interest in outcome-orientated solutions which match investors' risk profiles.
"Investors are increasingly looking for greater predictability in terms of risk," said Allianz Global Investors managing director Nick Smith. "We see risk-rated products as the new ‘core'."
