Artemis looks to European IFAs for investor relationships
The Federation of European IFAs (Feifa) has inked an affiliation deal with UK manager Artemis, to add to its existing list of partnerships and relationships with select fund providers.
Artemis had AUM of some £21bn (€30bn) as of June 2015 invested globally across open and closed ended funds, a venture capital trust and pooled and segregated institutional portfolios.
Simon Rogers of Artemis will head up the relationship with Feifa members. He said: “Our founders have been joined as partners by the majority of our fund managers, all of whom invest in Artemis funds. This aligns their interests directly, and for the long-term, with those of investors.”
“We are an active investment house dedicated to stock-picking. Our fund range is focussed: strong in global equities, Europe, the US and UK, and in fixed interest, but less well-known in emerging markets and specialist products.”
Feifa CEO Paul Stanfield added: “Artemis is independent and owner-managed, like our member firms. We feel that the company is an excellent fit with our existing Partnerships, as we continue to create relationships with the higher quality asset managers that our members are increasingly seeking.”
Feifa is a non profit trade association that acts on behalf of English speaking IFAs operating across more than 25 European countries, where they advise on assets in excess of €3bn. It has existing relationships with many international life companies and asset managers.
