reputable fund manager at a competitive fee.

The range has been carefully selected to span different risk
appetites – from the cautious to high growth.

regular engagement with the fund manager is undertaken by
Old Mutual International’s (OMI) experienced investment team.

Clients can confidently invest in these funds and rest assured
