Oyster joins Raymond James’ retail fund platform
The London asset management arm of Swiss banking Group SYZ & Co has established a partnership with Raymond James Investment Services to include the OYSTER range of funds on their open architecture platform. This will enable UK intermediaries to easily access OYSTER funds through an established retail fund platform.
Raymond James Investment Services provides investment managers, stockbrokers and investment focused financial planners with an open architecture administration platform, client reporting, research tools and technology solutions.
The partnership is a further step in SYZ & Co.’s growing emphasis on the UK market. SYZ & CO broadened its focus by registering and marketing its OYSTER funds in the UK three years ago. The partnership with Raymond James follows the recent launch of the OYSTER Continental European Selection fund in December 2013, a Europe ex-UK version of its successful flagship fund OYSTER European Selection.
Both the OYSTER Continental European Selection fund and the OYSTER European Selection fund are currently managed by Eric Bendahan (pictured), who has been with SYZ & Co since 2005.
