Moventum chooses Standard Life as preferred fixed income provider


Standard Life Investments has been chosen by Moventum as its preferred provider for fixed income in Germany.

Moventum is a business to business player in Germany, distributing funds primarily to intermediaries.

It is part of a prominent banking network in Europe, with Banque de Luxembourg owning a key stake in its business.

Last year the majority of Standard Life Investments’ Luxembourg¬-domiciled Sicav fund range became available to key intermediaries in Germany via Moventum’s fund platform.

As part of its new Asset Manager Inside concept, Moventum has created a co-¬branded fixed income microsite with Standard Life Investments. This enables subscribing IFAs to access education on the asset class, insight into asset allocation at different stages of the credit cycle, and information on Standard Life Investments’ fixed income funds

Toby Rockingham (pictured), European business development manager – strategic alliances, Standard Life Investments, says: “At present many German retail investors are seeking an improvement in returns but without wishing to take on significant risk. So to be chosen by Moventum as their fixed income preferred provider is a timely development for our platform business. Getting on these types of platforms can be relatively straightforward but being selected as a strategic partner is a whole lot harder.

“Germany is the fourth largest investment grade fund market in Europe with EUR445bn under management. This agreement will help us gain market share for our funds in this important IFA market.”

Standard Life Investments’ Sicav offering provides investors with access to 18 sub funds across a range of geographies and sectors in both equities and bonds. The funds have public distribution status in Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
