Funds

  • A portfolio needs to continue to be appropriate to meet an investor's needs not just at the start of their investment, but as market conditions change.
  • A portfolio of funds needs to be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that the reasons for selecting each underlying fund, and the asset allocation, remain valid.
  • There is a regulatory focus on how portfolio construction is managed and how this is matched to the investors needs.
  • Any investment needs to meet an investor's needs, be something they understand and are comfortable and confident in investing in.
  • Investor suitability requirements cannot be met by the analysis of historic return instead there needs to be a demonstrable understanding of the ongoing management process and the balance of risk and return of any proposed investment.
  • Investors require access to regular information on their investment.
  • Market volatility has made investors more aware of risk and the need for solutions that can help manage this.
  • There are various types of risk that need to be understood - for example start point, journey and destination point risk.
  • Advisers need to use a choice of investment solutions to meet different investors' needs - one solution cannot fit all.
  • Prudential plc is an international financial services group with significant operations in Asia, the US and the UK.
  • The Prudential Portfolio Management Group look after our multi-asset funds. They are a team of around 90 people that includes experienced investment professionals with specialist expertise in capital market research, manager research, investment strategy design, liability management, alternative investments and portfolio management. They control £153.9 billion, as at the end of December 2015, of Prudential's investments.
  • Our Prudential Portfolio Management Group (PPMG) believes in the importance of asset allocation and the key role that Multi-Asset funds could provide as an investment solution for many investors.
  • When managing Multi-Asset funds they aim to minimise reliance on economic forecasting and instead they look for investment opportunities which are driven by irrational market behaviour.
  • PPMG undertakes the 'manager of managers' role for our Prudential Group funds, and over the years they have built a thorough and effective governance framework.

The PruSelect fund range

There are thousands of funds available today - each aiming to perform well and attract investors' money. Fully researching and understanding this huge range of fund options can be a daunting prospect, requiring both time and commitment

With the aim of making fund choice easier we've asked the independent investment research company, Morningstar, to provide us with a list of funds that they believe are some of the best in each of the main investment sectors.

  • Morningstar selects the funds
  • Funds are added and removed based on Morningstar's views, and currently there are around 60 funds to select from within the PruSelect Fund Range

We have called this the PruSelect fund range, and have made it available through various Prudential and Prudential International products.

Additional fund choice

Over the years we have built a range of funds to meet different needs. These include funds from both Prudential and external fund managers.

Many of these funds target different investor needs and aim to provide additional choice.
