Barclays has made its GlobalAccess multi-manager fund range available to advisers through two major platforms, and hopes to launch on the remaining large providers by the end of the year.
GlobalAccess, which provides a range of open architecture fixed income and equity funds, has been launched on the Axa Wealth Elevate and Ascentric platforms.
It said the funds can be accessed via its Discretionary Portfolio Management Service (DPMS), which offers five portfolio solutions, or as individual components.
The group said its aim was for the funds and its DPMS to be available on all the main platforms by the end of 2012.
Bryan Parkinson, director of intermediary sales at Barclays, said: "The GlobalAccess range has further enhanced Barclays offering to the intermediary market as the demand for outsourcing, as well as the desire to build ‘best in class' client portfolios, increases."
Minimum investment in the 16 funds available through GlobalAccess is £1,000.
