Cazenove offers outsourcing service to advisers

Cazenove Capital is offering advisers its multi-manager diversity range and discretionary fund management service to use as an outsourced investment solution.

The multi-manager diversity range, which is made up of three portfolios, provides exposure to equities, fixed interest and alternatives for a range of different types of risks.

The discretionary fund management service offers clients the chance to customize their portfolio to their own level of risk.

UK advisory sales director Robert Thorpe says: “A rise in both market volatility and correlation of asset classes has lead more adviser firms to seek an outsourced solution to investment advice to allow them to focus on the increasing complexities of financial planning. While some investment companies are able to offer some assistance with this, there are a limited number of fund groups that can offer a solution catering for all categories for the end client, irrespective of their individual level of investment.
