Fund manager Invesco Perpetual is considering launching a direct-to-consumer investment offering, Money Marketing understands.
It is thought the D2C proposition would be a robo-style investment manager, akin to those currently on offer from firms such as Nutmeg, Scalable Capital and Moneyfarm.
A launch expected in the autumn, according to sources close to the launch.
Invesco declined to comment on any potential project.
An Invesco spokeswoman says: “We are always looking at ways to enhance service for our clients.”
Investec launched a D2C investment service, called Click&Invest last year, while M&G has offered an execution-only service to investors since 2016.
Meanwhile, fund giant Vanguard launched its direct-to-consumer online platform for UK mass-market investors last May.
