FundsNetwork is offering funds from 30 providers

FundsNetwork is to offer funds from 30 providers in its investment bond provided by Standard Life which will be ready to take money on December 12.

Over 100 funds will be available, with advisers entitled to up to 20 free switches, with that number to increase next year.

After Fidelity, providers with the most funds available thr-ough the bond are Standard Life with 14 funds, Invesco Perpetual with 10 funds, New Star with nine and Jupiter with seven.
