Carmignac Gestion announced that its funds are now available via the AXAWealth Elevate platform, making the company’s range of equities, bonds, diversified and multi asset investment solutions accessible to a larger number of UK intermediaries and retail investors.
In total, eleven Carmignac Gestion funds are available through AXA Wealth Elevate. All sterling share classes are hedged against the euro, so investors are not exposed to changes in the sterling/euro exchange rate.
Eric Helderlé, Managing Director at Carmignac Gestion, commented: “Today’s announcement is an important step in Carmignac’s expansion in the UK market. Following the opening of our London office in April last year, we have seen importantdemand for our high conviction investment approach from UK investors. Distributing funds via AXA Wealth’s Elevate platform will help us meet that demand by making our global and diversified investment solutions more widely available”.
David Thompson, managing director, Elevate, said: “The open architecture nature of the Elevate platform and an agnostic approach to where advisers and their clients choose to invest is at the heart of the AXAWealth proposition. By extending the range of funds on the Elevate platform, we are able to ensure that advisers and clients have access to a wide variety of investment choices giving them greater flexibility and choice. The addition of the Carmignac Gestion range increases the breadth of investment options in equities, bonds, diversified and multi-asset investment solutions.”
Carmignac Gestion’s investment funds are available to both retail and institutional investors through a wide variety of distribution channels. It now has a client base of more than one million investors across Europe.
