Canada Life International Limited (CLI) is expanding its international fund range with the addition of the multi-manager GHC Resilient Funds.
The company is the first offshore provider to have a formal link in place with the funds, adding to the number of agreements already in place with GHC Fund Management.
Mario Ricciardi, executive director - investments & business development at CLI, says the new funds are tailored for clients and IFAs who do not necessarily want to build portfolios from a range of funds themselves.
Richard Harper, senior fund manager at GHC Fund Management Limited, adds: "IFAs will assess a client's suitability, objectives, timescales and attitude to risk. From this they will select the appropriate risk graded fund from the Resilient range. The client's money is then managed within the fund as if it were an actively managed discretionary portfolio.
"In other words each risk graded fund will reap the benefits of GHC's independent macro economic research, top down asset allocation and stock selection, usually only available to discretionary portfolio management clients."
