Name changes for Somerset Emerging Markets Dividend Growth and TwentyFour Dynamic Bond

Phoenix Fund Services (UK) Limited (PFS), the Authorised Corporate Director (ACD) for a number of funds, was purchased by Maitland International Holdings Plc in April 2015.

A year on, the company has decided to change the prefix of the funds for which it provides administration services from PFS to MI.

Two Elite Rated funds will see their names changed to MI Somerset Emerging Market Dividend Growth and MI TwentyFour Dynamic Bond.

The fund management teams and investment processes remain unchanged. The change is simply one to the name of the funds.

An ACD provides fund set-up, fiduciary oversight and fund administration services to traditional fund managers.

The deal boosted Maitland’s assets under administration by £6.2 billion to over £135 billion and heralded the company’s entry into the fund administration sector in the UK, where it already had an established private client and corporate services business.

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
