Ascentric adds 103 funds to its platform

Ascentric has added 103 extra funds to its platform bringing its total to 2,944 funds from 231 fund managers.

The additional funds include the complete range of 30 JP Morgan offshore Luxembourg funds, the complete range of 16 offshore Franklin Templeton funds and the complete range of 57 Deutsche Bank exchange traded funds.

Ascentric sales director Richard Goodall says: “We pride ourselves on our unbiased and unrestricted approach, and in helping IFAs deliver holistic financial planning services cost effectively.

“The addition of these funds is in direct response to the feedback we’ve received from Ascentric platform users, who have stated that they want access to the widest possible choice of investments including the ability to invest in some niche areas that support the core and satellite investment approach.”

Ascentric is now negotiating with a number of fund managers to bring on new fund ranges and new products.
