T. Bailey plans passive multi-manager fund launch

The fund of funds will only hold passive offerings but will be actively managed by T. Bailey and is expected to have one of the lowest TERs for a Fofs in its sector.

The multi-manager team expects to launch the product early next year.

T. Bailey’s head of marketing and communications Philippa Gee says: “We have long been concerned at the risks many fans of trackers are taking – too many invest in a FTSE 100 tracker simply because it is cheap. They are missing out on the growth opportunities in emerging markets and other regions.”

“It’s a pioneering, RDR-friendly fund. It will offer active overlay and passive underlay – providing a cost-effective solution for those IFAs who favour passive investing but recognise the need for active asset allocation.”
