Leading insurer and platform provider Zurich is extending the range of funds available on its intermediary platform by increasing the number of ‘super clean’ share classes with preferential terms to advisers and their clients.
The range from Schroder adds a further 23 funds including their popular Schroder Tokyo and US Mid Cap funds.
This brings the number of funds available with ‘super clean’ or preferentially priced terms on the platform to over 100, adding to those already available from leading fund managers such as Blackrock and Old Mutual Global Investors.
Alistair Wilson, Head of Retail Platform Strategy said “Price continues to be a focus for advisers and their clients and we are delighted to be able use our position as a global player to reduce the total cost of ownership further for clients.
“We recognise that offering ‘super clean’ can sometimes have an impact on the speed and complexity of re-registration between platforms, and so we will continue to ensure that all super clean share classes on our platform have an equivalent ‘standard’ clean share class available for everyone to access.”
