R&SA set to widen external fund range

Royal & Sun Alliance plans to expand its range of external funds and fund managers available to IFAs and their clients through its life and pension products.

R&SA has yet to confirm details of the managers and fund links but says it is hoping to have the funds available in the second half of the year on its Lifestyle Investment bond and its new pension range.

Leader (asset release) Brian Barker says: “We are looking to offer funds from investment houses with an investment approach that complements the style and funds available through R&SA Investments. This will ensure IFAs have the choice and flexibility they and their clients are increasingly demanding.”
