L&G adds Dresdner funds to its panel

Legal & General has added Dresdner RCM Global Inv-estors to its panel of external pension fund managers, add-ing two fund choices from its range.

The Dresdner RCM exe-mpt global and UK equity funds will be available alongside L&G&#39s existing panel members Newton, Deutsche Asset Management, JP Mor-gan Fleming and SG Asset Management.

L&G says the exempt glo-bal fund aims to capture capital growth through diversified investments in global equity markets, including the UK.

The UK equity fund is designed to give investors capital growth and income by investing in a diversified portfolio of publicly listed UK companies.

The new funds increase the number of L&G&#39s externally managed funds to 18 and adds to its in-house portfolio of 21 pension funds, giving intermediaries almost 40 pension funds options.

L&G head of retail pensions Randle Williams says: “Our wide range of indextracking and actively managed funds makes us a natural choice for intermediaries to adopt a core/satellite investment strategy for their clients, where the core part of the investment is held in index tracking funds and the balance is invested in actively managed funds.”
