Allianz Global Investors has launched a range of risk-profiled funds with retail distribution review ready share classes.
The Allianz RiskMaster suite is made up of four actively-managed, multi-asset funds which are designed to provide an appropriate investment solution for their clients’ risk profiles.
The Allianz RiskMaster defensive, Allianz RiskMaster conservative, Allianz RiskMaster moderate and Allianz RiskMaster growth funds will reside in Distribution Technology’s 4,5,6 and 7 risk categories – the risk profiler’s most popular categories.
All four products have a minimum investment of £500. Their A share classes carry an annual management charge of 1.5 per cent, while the C class has a 0.75 per cent charge.
The portfolios will be managed on a team basis with expertise drawn from the company’s 30-strong risk management group and its multi-asset team. (article continues below)
