New name for Framlington fund

The £119m Axa Framlington Managed Growth fund will be renamed the Axa Framlington Global Opportunities fund on February 18. The name change is intended to better reflect the fund’s investment objective and policy, as well as the investment style of its fund manager, Mark Tinker, who took over the fund in September. Tinker’s investment approach is based on top-down analysis of global markets to identify key themes, which can be implemented globally.
