Architas renames fund range to boost transparency ahead of RDR

Architas has renamed its active and passive funds in a bid to offer more transparent products.

The Architas multi-manager fund range will be renamed the Architas multi-asset active, while the passive range remains unchanged as Architas multi-asset passive.

Architas says the name changes reflect a move towards simplification and greater transparency ahead of RDR. Only fund names will be changed. Investment objectives, policies and management of the funds remain the same as before.

Architas chief investment officer Caspar Rock says: “Simplifying the fund names helps advisers to give clients an improved understanding of Architas’ investment proposition. Since our launch nearly four years ago, we have continued to provide a coherent active and passive managed investment offering to suit a wide range of investment needs.”
