A UK investment consultant, specialising in advice to the trustees and sponsors of UK pension schemes, is running a search in CAMRADATA for Diversified Growth Funds. This search is being initiated with the intention of reviewing their current ratings on DGF products and, to also ensure that appropriate funds are not being missed. The most successful managers will be buy rated and form the panel of funds to be used for new diversified growth funds mandate searches that the consultant is appointed to conduct over the next year.  

All funds being proposed must be listed in CAMRADATA Live, and returns must be up to date i.e. at least to 31st March 2020.

Successful managers will be invited to attend a beauty parade by video conference on either 8th or 9th of September.

Assisted searches are run on behalf of institutional investors with specific search requirements. You are able to participate in this and all other Assisted Searches if you subscribe to CAMRADATA Live.
