City Financial expands research coverage to multi-manager

City Financial has added a multi-manager research capability to its Adviser Centre fund research offering which launches next month.

The research will be provided by multi-manager specialists Scopic Research, and will be available to advisers for free alongside the individual fund and fund manager research led by ex-OBSR chiefs Peter Toogood and Gill Hutchison.

Investment Adviser first reported the launch of City Financial’s Adviser Centre in November last year, and the service is set to go live in April. It will be a free web-based service providing research to advisers similar to that available in-house on Mark Harris’s multi-manager funds.

Andrew Williams, chief executive of City Financial, said: “This is a very important addition to the Adviser Centre, enabling the provision of an industry-leading service that supports financial advisers in the delivery of solutions to their clients.”
