Friends Provident has added 12 best of breed funds from six investment managers to its investment portfolio bond and its discounted gift bond.
The managers are Cazenove, Gartmore, Invesco Perpetual, M&G, New Star and Threadneedle. Cazenove, Gartmore and M&G are new to the Friends Provident investment bond fund range.
The 12 additional funds are designed to provide IFAs with an enhanced range of funds and asset classes, from managed distribution to China opportunities, to build diversified portfolios to suit clients needs.
The additions also mean Friends Provident is currently one of two providers to offer access to the new M&G Property Portfolio Fund within a life fund wrapper.
