Schroders to rename entire Cazenove range

Schroders will rebrand the entire Cazenove Capital fund range under its own name, following its acquisition of the firm last year.

Some 17 Cazenove funds, including the firm’s multi-manager range, will take the Schroders name on 24 March 2014.

Most will retain their previous description with Cazenove simply being replaced by Schroders in the name.

However, some products will see bigger changes to their name.

Paul Marriage’s £1.2bn Cazenove UK Smaller Companies fund will be rebadged as Schroder UK Dynamic Smaller Companies and Matt Hudson’s £649.4m Cazenove UK Equity Income fund will become Schroder UK Alpha Income.

Steve Cordell‘s £802m Cazenove European fund will become Schroder European Opportunities, while James Sym’s £234.5m Cazenove European Income fund will renamed Schroder European Alpha Income.

Peter Harvey’s £688.3m Cazenove Strategic Bond fund will become Schroder Strategic Credit. David Docherty’s £369.7m Cazenove UK Growth & Income fund will be Schroder Core UK Equity.

Schroders says: “Following Schroders’ acquisition of Cazenove Capital in July 2013, and as part of the continued integration of the two firms, we are combining our fund ranges.

“With effect from 24 March 2014, the Cazenove and Schroder funds will be combined onto one single administration platform, simplifying the operational procedures.”
