FundsNetwork adds new fund links to onshore bond

Fidelity FundsNetwork is to add 11 new fund links to its onshore investment bond which will bring the total choice available to over 200 funds.

The new fund links include Aegon ethical cautious managed fund, Fidelity retirement funds range, Threadneedle UK property trust and SWIP diversified assets fund.

FundsNetwork head of sales and marketing Rob Fisher says: “From a standing start when we launched the FundsNetwork onshore investment bond 18 months ago, we have seen its popularity soar as advisers take full advantage of the flexibility and diverse choice that a mutual funds-centric wrapper like this offers.
“Over that period, we have steadily added to the investment choice available and the Onshore Investment Bond will offer some 211 top quality fund links. 

“Building up the number of funds in a steady and quality-controlled way was something we stated we would do at the outset when we launched the wrapper. We will continue to add new funds links in this fashion to ensure that advisers are confident in both the asset classes and manager selection on offer.”
