Morley Fund Management (soon to be renamed Aviva Investors) has linked up with First Taisec to distribute some of its Sicav funds in Taiwan.
Taiwanese investors will be able to buy the funds through First Commercial Bank, one of the largest bank networks in the country, with 189 branches and five million retail customers.
Five of the funds registered under the Sicav will be available for sale: the Aviva Investors European Socially Responsible Investment, Global Convertibles, European Reit, Global Reit and European Convergence Equity funds.
Commenting on the deal, Adam Lessing, chairman of the Aviva Investors Sicav board and Morley’s head of European business development, said: “The Sicav funds are quality investment products with the potential for strong returns and we are anticipating high demand in Taiwan, in particular for the Aviva Investors European Socially Responsible Investment fund, which is the first of its kind to be sold to Taiwanese investors.”
