We are pleased to announce the introduction of the Embark Horizon Multi-Asset fund range into the Academy of Funds with a Recommended rating. This range consists of five multi-asset funds, each designed to map to specific EValue risk profiles.

Embark outsource management of the funds to the multi-asset team at Columbia Threadneedle Investments (CTI). We hold this team in high regard as they have shown a good ability over the years to add incremental value from asset allocation. The funds' invest into CTI's own funds and we believe that the group are one of only a small number of firms with appropriate strength and breadth to be able to support such an approach.

We believe that this fund range is an attractive option for investors requiring strategies that seek to provide capital growth over the long-term but who also want strategies designed to provide a more consistent risk profile.
