UK - Scottish Widows will launch four multi-manager portfolios on January 28, the result of its recently announced strategic alliance with multi-manager Frank Russell.
Each of the four ‘best of breed’ multi-manager funds will give investors a globally diversified portfolio, actively managed by a team of more than 60 leading investment managers, via a life or pension fund, unit trust or ISA.
Each portfolio has varying equity/bond mixes to reflect customers’ different risk tolerance levels and investment objectives.
