Verbatim funds receive industry ratings

06 October 2017

We are delighted that Defaqto, the leading risk rating analysts, have mapped the Verbatim and Total Clarity Funds under their risk-rating scheme*. Defaqto Risk Ratings are a great way of helping advisers match suitable multi-asset risk-bound funds with their clients’ mandates and is yet further evidence of Verbatim's pedigree.

In addition to the Defaqto ratings, the FP Verbatim Growth funds, managed by John Husselbee of Liontrust, have been awarded ‘RSMR rated’ status.

This means that the funds have passed a thorough Rayner Spencer Mills Research vetting process, and are deemed to have achieved the high standard required to receive this stamp of approval. As one of the market leading providers of risk managed investment solutions, we are delighted that the consistent returns within a risk-managed mandate of our flagship growth range have been recognised by one of the UK’s most respected fund research agencies.

These ratings are in addition to our existing LIPPER ratings for consistent returns^.
