Six of Liontrust’s global fund range are now available on Allfunds Bank, Europe's largest open architecture mutual fund platform.
They include two long/short UCITS – Liontrust GF European Strategic Equity and Liontrust GF Global Strategic Equity – as well as the high conviction Liontrust GF Global Water & Agriculture, Liontrust GF Asia Income and the flagship Liontrust GF Special Situations funds.
The addition of the six funds on Allfunds, which comes in response to market demand, will boost Liontrust’s international distribution, given the strength of the platform in markets across continental Europe and beyond.
Liontrust, which is headquartered in London and has a branch office in Luxembourg, has an experienced sales team – James Beddall (pictured), Jonathan Hughes-Morgan and Antonio Forte – distributing the Irish funds to the wholesale market across continental Europe. They are particularly focused on distributing the funds in Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the Benelux.
Beddall says: “Adding our funds to Allfunds is a very important step in expanding our distribution across continental Europe because of the widespread use of the platform by the wholesale market.
“Given where we are in the economic and market cycle, we are seeing particular interest in our two long/short UCITs funds, Liontrust GF European Strategic Equity and Liontrust GF Global Strategic Equity.”
Borja Largo, global head of fund groups at Allfunds Bank, adds: “We are very pleased to have another leading asset manager such as Liontrust on our platform, reinforcing our current fund offering and matching the interest of many investors and financial distributors on high quality products.”
