The new additions bring the total funds available via the wrap platform to 1,900 and the total fund managers to around 150.

Stenham Asset Management brings the Stenham Multi Strategy Fund to the Ascentric fund list and MFS Investment Management adds seven different Meridan Funds including Asia Pacific, Continental and Global Equity A2.

This brings the total number of Sipp providers available on the platform to 14.

Ascentric are currently in negotiations with a number of other potential product partners to further enhance the range of Sipps, SASSs, onshore and offshore bonds available to IFAs for their clients.
