Skandia International has added five Invesco funds to its range to diversify the breadth of choice available for international advisers.
The Invesco funds, focusing on the Asia Pacific region are: Asia Balanced, PRC Equity, Asia Consumer Demand, Asia Infrastructure and Emerging Local Currency Debt.
Four of the five launched bring a more eclectic mix of investment options for advisers and their clients as demand for types of investment differs throughout the international markets, says the firm.
Skandia International will continue to expand its investment proposition in line with demand from its markets to bulk up global offerings in the coming months.
"It's important to offer funds that are relevant to investors and advisers around the globe," says Steve Ellis, head of investment proposition at Skandia International.
"We're committed to ensuring that the funds we offer cover a diverse range of countries, markets and asset classes and these five Invesco funds add a new dimension to our proposition," he adds.
Nick Tolchard, managing director of Invesco's International Development Division, says: "While Asia certainly felt the tremors of the global financial crisis and saw sharp declines in export demand from the West, we are increasingly optimistic that the long-term growth prospects for the region have not been derailed."
He believes consumer spending and infrastructure expenditure will support further gains in Asian equities, particularly in China.
Pension savers need to engage with their retirement options far earlier than is currently normal to ensure they save enough through their lifetime, according to a report from the Association of British Insurers (ABI).
The majority of financial advisers (85%) believe the number of self-invested personal pension (SIPP) providers will continue to fall in the coming year, according to Dentons Pension Management research.
