F&C funds available via PPM in Sweden

F&C Management Ltd’s funds are once more available for investors self-selecting via the PPM platform operated by the Swedish Pensions Agency.

In a notice the Agency said “All” F&C’s funds are available as of 22 January.

Users of the platform use it to allocate assets that make up one of the pillars of the country’s long term savings regime. Annual reminders are sent out in an “orange envelope”.

The platform is subject not only to funds being removed or added, but also in terms of other developments.

Recently it was announced that the Agency’s deal with adviser Wassum to provide fund information had ceased.

A spokesperson for the Agency said that the decision to stop working with Wassum was down to gaps in the information received, that is, it did not cover all the funds available to PPM users.

The spokesperson admitted that it was not clear how this would impact users of the PPM platform.
