Threadneedle Investments is aiming to help IFAs with a series of investment guides for retail investors.
The three guides, Investing For Your Future, Why Do I Need a Financial Adviser and How to Build a Portfolio of Investments, will be distributed through investment advisers and Threadneedle's website. The guides are offered at a time when first-time investors have been alarmed by recent market volatility.
Threadneedle says the move is part of its ongoing commitment to intermediary distribution.
Retail managing director David Sachon says: “Feedback from advisers indicated that it would be very helpful if we could provide educational guides to emphasise how inv-estors can make the best of opportunities offered by the world's bond and equity market and to help investors look at investments in the long term.”
