Duce and Kearney funds retain OBSR ratings

Old Broad Street Research (OBSR) announced today it is retaining its A rating on the Credit Suisse Multi-Manager Portfolio Funds.

The funds, managed by Graham Duce and Aidan Kearney, are set to be moved to Aberdeen Asset Management following the announcement last month that it will be part of Aberdeens acquisition of Credit Suisse Asset Management, agreed in December.

OBSR says it expects the funds will be managed with the same style and approach and so have kept its ratings intact on the Cautious Managed Portfolio, Balanced Managed Portfolio, Equity Managed Portfolio, Constellation Portfolio and Multi-Asset Distribution Portfolio.
