Federation of European Independent Financial Advisers (FEIFA) has formed a new partnership with Scottish asset manager Aberdeen Asset Management.

FEIFA CEO Paul Stanfield said that the partnership deal will bring Aberdeen Asset’s £193.6bn third-party assets in equities, fixed income and property onto the radar of FEIFA’s English-speaking IFAs on the European mainland, reported international-adviser.com.

Stanfield further said that the partnership will add a "relevant and important dimension to our existing partnerships, and potentially offers something highly beneficial for our members".

Aberdeen Asset Management’s relationship with FEIFA members will be managed by its strategic partnerships UK head Steve Andrews.

"We view this as an important market and are keen to build our profile within it by offering a wide range of highly-regarded investment products and client service," Andrews said.
