Strengthened fund range

The announcement also follows news that Schroders is strengthening its fund range in response to adviser demand.

The company unveiled its £4.5bn range of low-cost model portfolios and multi-asset funds, known as the UK Investment Solutions business, earlier this year.

It’s now being bolstered with the addition of two specialist funds after advisers and clients called for an income product and a portfolio for cautious investors.
