The Guinness Global Energy Fund and the Guinness Global Innovators Fund will be promoted to the international market by Acorn International Fund Distribution and will be available via Generali’s Vision and Choice products.
Launched in 2014, the Guinness Global Energy Fund is rated five stars by Morningstar and invests in companies with what Guinness describes as “a culture of innovation”.
The Guinness Global Energy Fund was launched in 2008 and has a silver Morningstar Analyst rating.
Head of sales at Generali, Nick Griffin, said: “The Global Innovators Fund brings an interesting take on the vast arena of global equities to identify intelligently-run businesses, an approach that’s clearly validated by the portfolio’s strong long-term returns.
“The Global Energy Fund can offer a diversifying element within a portfolio and can provide a useful degree of protection against inflation.”
In March, Acorn International Fund Distribution said it aimed to form further partnerships with asset management firms, adding that a partnership would allow fund houses to expand their client-base to previously unexplored jurisdictions and retail markets.
