Square Mile Investment Consulting & Research today confirms it has added Standard Life Investments MyFolio Managed Range of funds to its Academy of Funds with Recommended ratings.

The Academy of Funds is a dedicated section within Square Mile's website, where advisers can access analysis on all recommended funds. Each fund carries a rating - A, AA, AAA, R or P+ - as a mark of quality and a reflection of the level of conviction Square Mile's team of analysts has in a fund's ability to deliver on expectations.

Commenting on the Standard Life Investments MyFolio Managed Range of funds, Alex Farlow, Head of Risk Based Solutions Research at Square Mile, said:

"The Standard Life Investments MyFolio Managed Range of funds join the MyFolio Market and Multi Manager ranges which were included in July 2014. These funds are part of a strong overall risk targeted proposition offered by Standard Life.

The three main facets to the funds' strategy - strategic asset allocation, tactical asset allocation and fund selection - are all well-resourced and contain suitably experienced individuals. This includes the SLI Multi Asset Investment team, responsible for the successful Global Absolute Return Strategy (GARS) product, which provides the tactical asset allocation overlay, and multi manager specialist, Bambos Hambi, who heads up the fund research and selection process. Over the longer term we believe the funds can deliver good outcomes for clients which are in line with their risk and return expectations."
