Cazenove offers multi-manager portfolio service

Cazenove Investment Fund Management has introduced a portfolio management service that provides access to four multi-manager funds of funds.

The Cazenove universal portfolio management service contains the Cazenove universal UK growth portfolio, Cazenove universal balanced portfolio, Cazenove universal growth portfolio and Cazenove universal international portfolio (ex UK) funds.

When selecting funds for each portfolio, the fund management team will analyse the investment process of the funds they are considering for the portfolio funds. They will also look at how the new additions will complement the funds they have already chosen.

Cazenove funds can be selected, but there is no obligation to include them and at present, no Cazenove funds are contained within the four portfolio funds.

Sometimes a change in manager can have a negative affect on a fund&#39s performance and where this happens, multi-manager funds of funds can replace the ailing fund with a better performer.

The Cazenove product is similar to the private portfolio service from Credit Suisse, which provides access to nine Credit Suisse multi-manager funds of funds. Although investors have more fund choice with Credit Suisse, the Cazenove product is eligible for Isas and Pep transfers. the Credit Suisse product is not, since it has a minimum investment of £10,000.
