The Aegon Retirement Choices (ARC) programme has been boosted by the addition of five new discretionary fund managers.
Newcomers are Avellemy (DFM provider to Bellpenny clients), Brooks MacDonald, Fairstone, Tatton, and Liontrust. This brings the total number of DFMs on the ARC platform to 17. Aegon said in a statement that this is a part of their commitment to dedicating significant investment to the DFM proposition.
Investment Director at Aegon Nick Dixon said: “It is widely expected that the percentage of on-platform assets under management by DFMs will increase over the next few years. With an increasing number of clients looking for sophisticated investment strategies we are delighted to announce our new partnerships with Avellemy, Brooks MacDonald, Fairstone, Tatton, and Liontrust. The combination of their investment expertise alongside the ARC efficient model portfolio technology and broad choice of assets, lets clients and their advisers have the flexibility and choice they’re looking for.”
