European IFA trade body partners with Jupiter

The Federation of European Independent Financial Advisers (FEIFA) has partnered with Jupiter Asset Management, in an effort to support the professional development of its member IFAs.

The trade association and investment management firm have previously worked together at FEIFA's masterclass seminars at the end of 2018, with more planned this year.

The federation has member firms active across Europe, currently advising on cumulative assets in excess of €5bn (£4.5bn). 

Paul Stanfield, chief executive at FEIFA, said Jupiter's expansion into Europe and Asia meets the trade association's criteria of affiliating with "high quality, well-regulated" investment houses.

Mr Stanfield said: "Jupiter is keen to assist with regards to our professional development work and has already worked with us in this manner, providing highly beneficial presentations to a number of our member firms."

Chris Johns, head of FEIFA members relationships at Jupiter, said: "We believe in active fund management, working together to share investment ideas, yet ensuring our fund managers take individual responsibility for their own portfolios.

"Jupiter offers a broad range of actively managed strategies including equities, fixed income, multi-manager, multi-asset and absolute return.

"We recognise that the advisory environment is always changing and we aim to serve it where and when we can and work in partnership with our strategic partners. To this end, the relationship with FEIFA is key in Europe."
