Coutts has launched a range of seven multi-asset funds that target a defined level of risk.
The range of UK and global Ucits funds invest in cash, bonds, equities, commodities and property.
The vehicles are managed to a risk target, to meet clients’ investment objectives with an appropriate strategy.
UK chief investment officer Alan Higgins and his team will manage the four UK-focused funds while the three global funds will be managed by Europe CIO Norman Villamin and his team in Zurich.
Gayle Schumacher, head of investment office at Coutts, said: ‘This range of funds plays a vital role in the evolution of our wealth management capabilities and provides a transparent, cost-effective, RDR-compliant investment solution.'
He said the firm’s 4x7 risk management process allows the teams to match clients’ individual investment objectives and risk profile with the appropriate investment strategy.
For Coutts clients, the annual management charge will be 0.50%.
