Architas has made its range of risk-rated investment funds available on Aegon Platform, Aegon Retirement Choices (ARC) and Aegon’s pension solution One Retirement.
The head of business development for the multi-manager arm of Axa Wealth has confirmed that the deal has included active, passive and blended fund-of-funds on Aegon’s platforms. This move also aims to make the Architas’ range accessible to more advisers.
The clean share class funds will be available through Sipps, offshore bonds, general investment accounts and ISAs.
In all, the Architas range has 17 funds. Among them six funds are actively managed. After the launch, the range is available on Cofunds, FundsNetwork, Transact, Nucleus, Ascentric, 7IM, Sippcentre, Hargreaves Lansdown Vantage, Standard Life, and the Axa Wealth Elevate platform.
Cedric Bucher, head of business development, Architas, says: “The Aegon platform is targeted at two key markets, at retirement and workplace savings. Having proven popular with advisers we believe our core proposition of risk-profiled funds is well suited to these growing markets and are pleased to be working with Aegon to meet the growing demand from consumers.
