Omnis launches Distribution fund

Openwork and Octopus Investments have launched a distribution fund under the Omnis Investments brand.

Omnis is a joint venture between the two firms, and has launched four multi-manager funds since July 2008. IFDS Managers acts as the authorised corporate director (ACD). The existing funds have combined assets under management of £100m.
