Friends Provident International adds more New Star funds

Friends Provident International has made two more New Star funds available through its Premier, Premier Ultra, Elite and Zenith products.

The New Star Global Financials Fund managed by Guy de Blonay and New Star Tactical Portfolio managed by Mark Harris are to be available in US dollars.

The funds join New Star’s European Growth Fund and International Property Fund, which are already available with Friends Provident International products.

New Star international partnerships director James Tothill says he is delighted the range of New Star funds available has increased. He says: “Life offices present a great opportunity to reach potential investors.

“We have worked closely with Friends Provident International and with our other distribution partners to ensure that investors have access to New Star’s top-performing funds and investment expertise.”

Friends Provident International investment funds strategy and marketing manager Jim Henning says: “We have worked closely with New Star for a number of years and respect its distinct stock-picking investment style and its fund managers’ excellent track records.”
