Sesame has today launched its joint investment company venture with Henderson Global Investors.
Optimum Investment Management has been launched following FSA approval and will consist of four multi-manager portfolios.
The firm says the portfolios enable advisers to offer tailored portfolios matching client’s risk through an unbundled share class with a total expense ratio of 1.05 per cent and can be accessed through the Sesame One platform and a number of other platforms.
The four portfolios are strategic income, enterprise, global income and high alpha.
Henderson multi-manager director Tony Lanning is the lead manager of Optimum with Helen Bradshaw as co-manager.
The portfolios will be offered through Sesame’s restricted proposition but will also be available to the wider market and included as mirrored funds within the product ranges of various providers.
Sesame chief executive George Higginson (pictured) says: “Optimum has been designed to put the adviser at the heart of the investment process by enabling them to deliver a valuable ongoing service to their clients.”
Henderson Global Investors associate director Danny Knight says: “In light of continuous change in regulation and client needs, the launch of Optimum Investment Management comes at the right time.”
