ABN AMRO adds new investment products for advisory clients

Press release -

ABN AMRO has announced new investment products for its advisory clients in the Netherlands. New products will include investment funds that ABN AMRO manages in partnership with other asset managers, for example ABN AMRO’s multi-manager funds. For these funds, ABN AMRO’s asset manager ABN AMRO Investment Solutions (AAIS) delegates its management function by mandating external portfolio managers specialising in the specific asset classes in which they invest. Advisory clients will also have access to more funds handled by external parties: previously, those investment products were restricted to institutional and asset management clients.

ABN AMRO is introducing this change in response to a rising demand among clients for specialist investment solutions, for example solutions that target sustainability, impact investing, private equity and fixed income niches.

Advisory status

The new products will become available on 12 April 2019. As a result, the bank’s investment advisory services will no longer qualify as independent. ABN AMRO already provided non-independent treasury investment advice.

The best fit for the client

ABN AMRO’s investment advisors will continue to advise on what investments are the best fit for each client, based on risk profile, financial position, understanding and experience – regardless of whether a particular investment fund is managed by ABN AMRO or another party. Clients decide for themselves what investments they do and do not wish to include in their portfolios. The changes will not lead to additional costs for investment advisory clients, besides the usual transaction costs that all portfolio changes carry.
