Principal adds offshore funds to Vantage

Principal Global Investors has added its Dublin-based funds to Vantage, Hargreaves Lansdown’s funds platform.

The asset manager, with $244.9bn under management, will add its global equity, European equity, Asian equity, emerging markets equity, Japanese and US equity funds to the platform in a bid to introduce UK retail investors the opportunity to gain access to the range of funds.

Principal had previously only marketed their strongly performing funds to institutional investors.

Principal global investors head of fund wholesale Steven Brown says: “To achieve the returns clients are seeking we believe superior stock selection and disciplined risk management are the keys to consistent out-performance.  This new link with Hargreaves Lansdown is a great opportunity for Principal Global Investors to forge a relationship with one of the UK’s premier distributors and further confirms our commitment to the UK marketplace.”
