Openwork adds four funds to investment range

Adviser network Openwork has added four more funds to its investment range including products managed by Schroders and Threadneedle.

The launches follow the announcement of multi-asset funds which are pencilled for launch in the second quarter of 2013.

Threadneedle will manage the Omnis UK Fixed Interest fund, while Schroders will run the Omnis UK Equities fund. The other two mandates have been handed to Octopus, which will run the Omnis Alternative Strategies fund, and US-based Thomas White International, which will manage the Omnis International Equities fund.

Philip Martin, proposition and marketing director at Openwork, said: “The expanded Omnis proposition will enable our advisers to access outsourcing solutions underpinned by some of the best fund managers in their respective asset classes both in the UK and abroad.

“We are particularly excited to offer the strong institutional capabilities of Thomas White to UK retail customers for the first time, as its expertise in international equities is second to none.”

Alongside the active and passive multi-asset fund ranges, the Omnis single-strategy fund range now reads as follows:
