With over £1.1bn under management*, the funds are built on the belief that no one fund manager can be an expert in all markets at all times. Led by Sheldon MacDonald (who has 20 years' investment experience), the Architas team specialises in different asset classes and geographical areas. Architas' skills lie in blending funds from the Tailored Selection, the AXA Fund Collection, and for the Managed Funds, selecting Elite Sector Funds if appropriate.
Give your client’s portfolio the chance to perform. Architas makes use of market knowledge and industry news feeds to be aware of any material changes to the structure and terms or management process of funds to assist in their monitoring of the Elite range. Your client can switch between funds free of charge whenever your client’s attitude to risk changes.**
Offer your client well-researched investments. Architas uses sophisticated specialist software, desk-based research and fund manager interviews to analyse which funds have the potential to grow.

The value of an investment can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. That means your clients could get back less than they put in.
