Henderson is launching a joint venture agreement with Paradigm Group to power its new investment proposition called Tatton Capital.

Subject to regulatory approval, the proposition will go live later this year and will see Henderson launch four risk-rated multi-asset funds offered through Tatton Capital.

The multi-asset funds will be managed by Henderson head of multi-asset Bill McQuaker (pictured).

Last week, Paradigm announced it is launching an investment management business offering funds, model portfolios and discretionary portfolio management services to independent and restricted advisers.

It will run alongside its existing asset management business, Prism Capital Management, which has £250m of assets and is managed by Octopus Investments.

In June, Henderson launched a joint venture proposition with IFA network Sesame called Optima Investment Management. The range consists of four multi-manager portfolios. The asset manager also offers four multi-manager portfolios in a deal with Intrinsic. The initial deal was between Intrinsic and New Star Asset Management in 2008 before the latter was acquired in April 2009 by Henderson.

Henderson commercial director Stewart Cazier says: “This is an important step in our business strategy and approach to a changing investment landscape following the RDR as we seek to provide advisers and their clients with the best range of products that meet their expectations.”

Paradigm’s Anthony Morrow says: “The partnership we have formed with Henderson and its multi-asset team is part of our plan to build a modern market-leading investment management business that incorporates our existing proposition.”
