UK - Solus Investment Partners, the institutional investment management arm of Brown Shipley, is to offer multi-manager service through intermediaries seeking a managed portfolio of collective investments for their clients.
The service will offer three portfolios with different investment strategies with assets sub-divided into five categories covering core, small-cap, specialist, momentum and counter-momentum.
The portfolios will be split into growth, balanced and international and will be made up of those funds which in the manager’s view best meet the investment criteria. Among those will be the Premier European Growth and the Solus Eastern Enterprise funds.
Minimum investment in the Solus multi-manager service will be £25,000 and it will carry an initial commission of 3% on renewal.
