(London) Aviva Investors, the global asset management business of Aviva plc (‘Aviva’), is celebrating the five-year anniversary of its Multi-Asset Fund (MAF) range.

Three of the suit of five Aviva Investors MAF funds were set up in November 2010, with a further two launched in February 2012. The full range was set up with the intention to provide capital growth and meet the differing attitudes to risk of a diverse client base.

Each fund is suited to a different risk appetite, with the flexibility to invest in a globally unconstrained portfolio without the home bias that is prevalent in the industry.  The funds invest in a broad range of global asset classes.

The three MAF funds that launched in November 2010 have since inception achieved a growth of 17.3% to 42.3%

mid-to-mid net income reinvested*, dependant on risk tolerance.

Peter Fitzgerald, Head of Multi-Asset at Aviva Investors, said: “Since inception, the MAF range has achieved considerable success and its asset allocation determined by risk profile has provided investors with confidence. This range is a key part of our Multi-Asset offering.”

Aviva Investors has also added to its fund management team for the MAF range. Thomas Wells, previously Assistant Fund Manager is now Fund Manager. Paul Parascandalo, Lead Manager of the Aviva with Profits Fund, has joined the MAF team as Fund Manager. Thomas and Paul join Peter Fitzgerald and Nick Samouilhan as fund managers on the range.

Peter added: “The joint UK and Irish Multi-Asset fund range is now close to £2 billion* and is seeing substantial growth. The addition of Thomas and Paul as fund managers reaffirms our commitment to these funds and will help to ensure continued success.”
