IFSL Barclays radar fund now available on Skandia platform
Barclays has announced the IFSL Barclays Radar fund is now available on the Skandia platform. Launched on 12 March 2012, the IFSL Barclays Radar fund, a global macro fund which accesses the views of Barclays independent international research team and the expertise of its fund management business, has been made available for investment via the Skandia Investment Solutions platform.
A UK Open Ended Investment Company (OEIC) with daily liquidity, the IFSL Barclays Radar fund implements the same global macro investment strategy as the Barclays Capital Radar fund (an Irish domiciled UCITS fund), which recently marked its three-year anniversary with a return of 36.55%.
The IFSL Barclays Radar fund is also available for investment via Standard Life's fundzone and wrap platforms.
Commenting on the addition of the fund to the Skandia platform, Nathan Bance, UK Investor Solutions, Barclays, said: "Interest in the strategy continues to grow and we are committed to widening the ways in which retail investors can access the IFSL Barclays Radar Fund. Skandia is of course a leading distributor in this market and we are pleased to announce that the Radar fund is now available on its investment platform."
Mat Wood, Lead Specialist, Proposition Marketing, Skandia UK, said: "We are constantly looking to evolve and add to the investment range on the platform, in line with demand from financial advisers. The addition of the IFSL Barclays Radar fund should appeal to investors looking for an absolute return solution with a global remit."
