, senior investment officer at Accessor, told The MFWire
The Accessor Funds are currently distributed mainly through regional banks and trust companies, though three years ago they also got into the broker dealer channel. On the agenda for future distribution are wirehouses and DC plans.
On the list of Accessor's carefully selected sub-advisers you can find familiar names like State Street, Intech, BlackRock and Acadian.
