Henderson Global Investors has used Distribution Technology to risk profile five of its multi-manager range and the Henderson Cautious Managed Fund.
Distribution Technology has profiled the funds in a range between three and six. All the funds have a track record in excess of three years.
Risk ratings of the funds will be reviewed on a quarterly basis and any changes will be publicised on the Henderson website.
Henderson head of UK retail Simon Hillenbrand says: “Establishing an individual investor’s attitude to risk is critical for helping financial advisers assess fund suitability and to provide ongoing investment recommendations.”
The Henderson Multi-Manager Diversified fund is not included at this stage, but may do later after it has built more of a track record since it changed objective and sector. The fund changed its objective on March 30 from absolute to total return and changed sector to the IMA mixed investment 0-35 per cent shares sector.
