Barclays Stockbrokers announces fund supermarket special offers


* Discounts available from 26 May

Barclays Stockbrokers today announces the start of a special offer on five funds from some of the leading managers – the discounts are available from 26 May until the end of June*, to mark the start of the new tax year. The funds, covering a range of growth and income investment objectives, will be available for the fixed period with a zero per cent Initial Service Charge.

The funds are:

* Aberdeen Asia Pacific
* Artemis Income
* Fidelity EMEA
* JP Morgan Natural Resources
* Schroder UK Alpha Plus

Chris Stevenson, Associate Director, Funds, at Barclays Stockbrokers says: “We are delighted to provide this special offer to our customers. The five funds encompass a varied range covering several sectors, and through this we aim to cater for the breadth of our client base. We’ve looked at current client appetite for funds investment and there’s a strong trend of clients seeking exposure to eastern and emerging markets, and commodities through funds. Aberdeen Asia Pacific, Fidelity EMEA fund and JP Morgan Natural Resources should appeal to investors looking to diversify their portfolios in these areas. For clients looking to invest closer to home, we have Schroders UK Alpha Plus fund, and for investors with a more cautious income objective, Artemis Income fund completes the set of five.

“This year has so far been dominated by market volatility but we believe investors should be focusing on the long term and it seems the grass roots of investor confidence are coming back. We have put these incentives in place to encourage investors to diversify their portfolios.”
