Standard Life to offer SICAV funds in France, Belgium, Italy
Following demand from clients, Standard Life Investments has registered some of its most successful SICAV funds in France, Belgium and Italy.
The new registrations widen Standard Life Investments’ distribution footprint in the European institutional and wholesale markets to 14 countries, and allows French, Belgian and Italian investors to access funds such as the award winning Global Absolute Returns Strategies SICAV (GARS), European Corporate Bond SICAV, and Global High Yield Bond SICAV.
“Standard Life Investments is serious about expanding globally and committed to Europe. We registered in Switzerland last year, expanded our German team at the start of the year, and have a Real Estate team based in Paris, so this was a natural progression for our European business,” said Jennifer Richards, co-head of European business.
