Alliance Trust Savings (ATS) plans to shore up the number of funds available on the platform over the next four months as part of a final active expansion drive.
The platform arm of Alliance Trust aims to have between 2,000 and 2,500 clean funds from around 80 fund managers in place by the end of 2013.
There are currently 1,800 funds available on the platform from around 50 fund managers.
ATS is engaged in active discussions with fund groups including Dimensional, Skandia, Russell, Frontier, Argonaut and Architas.
Funds from Cavendish, Ecclesiastical, Heartwood, Liontrust and Unicorn Asset Management have all been added to the platform within the past month.
ATS sales and marketing director Garry Mcluckie (pictured) said the year-end figure was an optimal total for the platform and would signal a drop-off in terms of active recruitment.
He said: "We probably will not go out and actively seek new fund managers after this figure is achieved but we will listen to requests from IFAs and if there is a good business case for either adding a new fund or fund manager, we would respond to that."
ATS has also entered into early discussions with developers on introducing a model portfolio functionality and is aiming to have rolled out this feature to the wider market by 2014.
The platform recently selected Altus to provide its automatic re-registration capabilities. The pilot stage has been completed and the service will be introduced within the next few weeks.
