Sesame Bankhall joins with Henderson for investment launch
Sesame has today launched its joint investment company venture with Henderson Global Investors.
Optimum Investment Management has been launched following FSA approval and will consist of four multi-manager portfolios.
The firm says the portfolios enable advisers to offer tailored portfolios matching client’s risk through an unbundled share class with a total expense ratio of 1.05% and can be accessed through the Sesame One platform and a number of other platforms.
The four portfolios are strategic income, enterprise, global income and high alpha.
Tony Lanning, multi-manager director at Henderson, is the lead manager of Optimum with Helen Bradshaw as co-manager.
The portfolios will be offered through Sesame’s restricted proposition but will also be available to the wider market and included as mirrored funds within the product ranges of various providers.
George Higginson, chief executive of Sesame, says: “Optimum has been designed to put the adviser at the heart of the investment process by enabling them to deliver a valuable ongoing service to their clients.”
Danny Knight, associate director at Henderson Global Investors, says: “In light of continuous change in regulation and client needs, the launch of Optimum Investment Management comes at the right time.”
