The firm believes this partnership will enhance its fund distribution offering.

Boutique asset manager Unigestion has joined the MFEX platform, in a bid to expand its fund distribution network.

The new agreement means that all of Unigestion’s Uni-Global SICAV sub-funds and share classes will now be listed on the MFEX platform, the firm said in a statement. 

The availability of Unigestion's SICAV fund range on the MFEX platform marks the latest step in the firm’s growth in the intermediary market space, following its registration with Allfunds Bank in March this year. According to the firm: "Both of these agreements have further enhanced Unigestion’s fund distribution capability in the intermediary market, and offer to a wider range of investors access to the company’s four areas of expertise: risk-managed equity, multi asset, private equity and alternatives investing."

Unigestion has offices around the world, with centres in Geneva, Zurich and London, and has a presence in North America and Asia. MFEX trades mutual funds and provides rebates and fund documentation. MFEX has distribution agreements with 775 international fund companies from 40 legal domiciles covering over 50,000 funds.
