Royal London's pensions arm, Scottish Life, has added six additional funds to its core investment fund range.
The six include four external funds and two from sister company Royal London Asset Management.
The funds have been chosen from the emerging market equity, global equity, government and corporate bond and specialist sectors and complement the present options available to customers.
The new funds are BlackRock Emerging Market Tracker; M&G Global Dividend; Sarisan Agrisar; Standard Life Global Absolute Return Strategies; SL Global High Yield; SL Short Duration Global High Yield.
Scottish Life now offers 164 funds from 29 fund managers, for advisers to use when building portfolios for their clients.
The aim is to reduce the time advisers have to spend on fund selection, while still offering a wide investment choice so that advisers can add value for their clients.
Scottish Life said that it monitors the funds on an ongoing basis to ensure their quality is maintained.
Investment marketing manager at Scottish Life, Lorna Blyth, said: “Through a mixture of adviser feedback and market analysis, we have identified top quality funds for which there is a significant level of demand.
"We select funds which either increase our coverage into new sectors or which have a strong track record of meeting objectives and delivering competitive returns to provide real value for advisers and their clients."
