Allianz Global Investors is to launch a series of risk-rated, multi-asset funds.
The funds will be actively managed and offer RDR-ready share classes.
Allianz Global Investor managing director Nick Smith says: “There are two strong trends playing out in the UK retail market at the moment. Firstly, investors are increasingly looking for greater predictability in terms of risk, with growing demand for outcome-orientated solutions which match an investor’s risk profile.
“Secondly, as RDR approaches, we continue to work very closely with advisers to try and make their job easier for them. In response to these trends, AllianzGI will be launching a range of risk-rated fund solutions. As one of Europe’s largest risk managers and advisers, we are delighted to offer this expertise to the UK for the first time.”
