Premier Asset Management says it is keen to bolster its regional fund range if it can recruit the right manager.
Sales and marketing director Simon Weldon says the firm has a strong UK equities and fixed income offering as well as a strong multi-manager and property proposition and additions in regions such as Asia, Europe and the US would be welcome if the right opportunity came along.
He says: “We are not actively looking at this stage but should the right manager become available, we would definitely look at launching a product.”
Hargreaves Lansdown investment manager Ben Yearsley says: “The regional markets are selling at the moment. A group like Premier needs to make sure that the areas it invests in have long-term growth. However, those markets can sometimes be difficult to break into.”
